About Us

Why Washington Business Properties Association?

What is the WBPA? – The WBPA will be the broadest coalition of businesses and professional associations focused on commercial, residential, and retail real estate and property rights issues in Washington State.

Why the WBPA? – We work together to amplify our effectiveness in elections, legislative advocacy, and regulatory policy by coordinating efforts across the commercial, residential, and retail real estate industries.


WBPA IS FOR COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE

Today, the commercial real estate industry faces burdensome regulatory mandates at the state and local levels. WBPA has made the protection of a reasonable and common-sense business environmnet a top priority for all commercial real estate members. 

Our priorities for 2021 and beyond are to fight new and unreasonable permit and zoning codes, unrealistic energy benchmarking requirements, frivolous lawsuits on alleged ADA violations, and an onslaught of tax proposals.

WBPA IS FOR PEOPLE WHO CREATE HOUSING

Many housing providers are facing bankruptcy or foreclosure due to the eviction moratorium, which forces them to cover the housing costs of their residents. WBPA has made the protection of housing property rights a top issue in the legislature and in the courts. 

Our priorities for 2021 and beyond are to fight onerous and unconstitutional legislation, to support development and housing creation, to fight property rights takings, and to protect property owner's assets and investments.
