It's been a while since an update on the location of the former historic First United Methodist Church. MultiCare is on its way to building its new emergency departments for Tacoma General and Mary Bridge. Currently there's one heck of a pit where the corner of MLK Jr. Way and S. 5th used to be. The length of S. 5th that used to lead to a couple alleys and a MultiCare parking garage is currently gone. The pit itself spans the length of the block and is a good 30-35' deep. I imagine once the rainy season is cast off for Spring construction on the new facility will begin in earnest.
