The Commons at Federal Way (formerly SeaTac Mall) is a regional [1] shopping mall located in Federal Way, Washington and is the only indoor shopping center in the city.[2] 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.[3]

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.

The original Cinnabon opened at SeaTac Mall in December 1985.[4]

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.[5]

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.
