Prior to the open house, a media day will be held on July 31. Furthermore, invited guests will take a tour of the temple Aug. 1-3. 

According to a church news release, the temple will be a single-story structure that will be constructed on 17 acres of land along Yonezawa Boulevard. Additionally, a new meeting house, roughly 17,000 square feet, has been built along side the temple.

President Russell M. Nelson announced the temple in April 2019. Construction on the temple began in October 2020.  According to the news release, the temple will be the fourth in Washington, joining Richland, Seattle and Spokane.
