One of the most noted projects currently under work in Tukwila is the development of Tukwila Village. The new neighborhood will include space for both retail and residential real estate. Its central location and easy access to a new light-rail station is making Tukwila Village one of the most sought-after Tukwila real estate. Perhaps the most well-known neighborhood in Tukwila is the Southcenter neighborhood, though it is the least residential neighborhood of them all. Southcenter is where the self-titled Southcenter mall is located. The mall, newly remodeled in 2008, features over 240 stores and restaurants. Also added in the remodel is a 16-screen movie theatre. The Southcenter mall is just the beginning of the dining and shopping options in Tukwila. It is simply a centerpiece for the surrounding retail stores and variety of restaurants. Just north of the main shopping district is The Family Fun Center. Here, patrons can find entertainment for the whole family including an arcade, laser tag, mini-golf and bumper boats.
