The Commons at Federal Way (formerly SeaTac Mall) is a regional [http://www.metrokc.gov/assessor/AreaReports/2007/Commercial/250.pdf] shopping mall located in Federal Way, Washington and is the only covered shopping center in the city [http://www.articlesmore.com/Article/Federal-Way--Washington/245] . The current owners, Steadfast Commercial Properties, changed the name to The Commons at Federal Way.

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 in the SeaTac Mall in December 1985.

In order for airplanes to make their gradual descent into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, they use the mall as a reference point to line up with the runway further north on clearer days.
