Building History

The Tacoma architectural partnership of Proctor and Dennis designed this wood-frame, two-story, two-storefront and apartment building for D.A. Loose. The City of Tacoma issued building permits in either very late 1889 or very early 1890, and the Puget Sound Savings Bank occupied one storefront by mid-1890. (See (See “Puget Sound Savings,” Tacoma Daily Ledger, 06/07/1890, p. 5 and Tacoma Public Library.org, Tacoma Pierce County Buildings Index: 2422-24 Pacific Ave, Tacoma," accessed 10/09/2020.)


The D.A. Loose Building was likely demolished in 04/1945. (See “Must Raze Four Apartments, City Rules,” Tacoma News-Tribune, 03/21/1945, p. 1.)
