Redevelopment: AOB Parking Lot

AOB Lot-1


The AOB (Administrative Office Building) parking lot is the former site of the City Hall administrative offices. The lot is downtown behind the Puyallup Public Library near the intersection of Pioneer Avenue and 3rd Street SW. In 2008, City Hall moved their offices to its current location at 333 S Meridian, demolished the old building, and created a public parking lot with approximately 103 spaces. The City is working to sell the property to a developer, who would then redevelop the lot to increase housing options downtown.
