The building is approximately 45,000 square feet in size and will be able to accommodate over 700 in the two-tiered theater. With floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over Mt. Rainier and a large outdoor plaza the center will be a local and regional hub for arts and events in Federal Way for a long time.
