After a long workday of serving your country, it’s finally your time. Whether you enjoy sipping a tall, cold one in a neighborhood restaurant, biking along a beautifully maintained pathway or hiking lush nature trails – do it. You deserve to enjoy the waterfront lifestyle.
Today, you can enjoy city living and outdoor activities along a spectacular paved waterfront and lush wooded trails without leaving your neighborhood. The luxury apartments at Point Ruston help you enjoy the best of Northwest living.
Create Your Best Life
If you’ve just been commissioned to Fort Lewis or McChord Air Force Base and want to find a community that helps you create a full and rich life, explore the luxury apartment homes at Point Ruston. Just a short drive from your base, Point Ruston is nestled on the shores of Commencement Bay. This neighborhood currently includes two luxury apartment buildings and countless amenities meant to add fun, camaraderie and activity to your life.
The individual apartments are as much a destination as the surrounding area, with upgraded floor plans that maximize space, and elite features like granite counter tops, soothing lighting, and breathtaking views of Commencement Bay.
The unique location allows you to enjoy diverse activities that include the world class restaurants and entertainment, on-water recreation, and nature trails that surround the bay and lead into the beautiful grounds of the 702-acre Point Defiance Park.
Be Active Outdoors
Rain or shine, runners, walkers and cyclists enjoy the path system that borders the southern shoreline of Commencement Bay. At strategic points along the walkway are benches, water fountains and artwork that enhance the beautiful experience of the Tacoma waterfront. Take a few moments to rest and enjoy the view or explore the Chinese Reconciliation Park’s traditionally inspired garden and pagoda.
If you are a water enthusiast you can embark on the water with your kayak or canoe from Point Ruston, and explore the bay from atop the open water.
Enjoy World-Class Restaurants
If there’s no time to cook, the restaurants in the Point Ruston neighborhood are just steps away from your door.
