The Commons at Federal Way (formerly SeaTac Mall) is a regional  shopping mall located in Federal Way, Washington and is the only indoor shopping center in the city. The current owners, Steadfast Commercial Properties, changed the name to The Commons at Federal Way. Improvements to the shopping center in 2008 were expected to improve sales upon an expected $25 to $30 per square foot ($250-300/m²) by year’s end.
The original developer was Harry Newman of Newman Properties. SeaTac Mall opened in 1975 on a forested, swampy pasture that was the homestead of Mabel Webb Alexander, who arrived in Washington in 1879 and died at age 96. For many years the original SeaTac mall used a thunderbird in the logo and had a mascot, Thudius T. Thunderbird.
Today, The Commons at Federal Way has over 90 stores and features Macy's, Sears, Target, Kohl's, as well as a Food Court and a Century Theaters complex. Dick's Sporting Goods opened in October 2014.
Other recognizable retailers at The Commons include Famous Footwear, Victoria's Secret, Bath & Body Works, Lane Bryant, Wet Seal, Kay Jewelers, Tilt Arcade, and more.
