Dragon Fest in Chinatown – International District

Join ULI Northwest for an interactive walking tour of one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods, the Chinatown-International District. This walkable, transit-oriented community is comprised of three areas underpinning the vibrancy of our city: Chinatown, Japantown, and Little Saigon.

A designated historic district by the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the central location of the Chinatown-International District appealed to its early residents—immigrants from China, Japan, and the Philippines who arrived in the 1850s to early 1900s, with Vietnamese and Southeast Asian immigrants arriving during the 1970s.  Today, young professionals, artists, and families are drawn to the neighborhood’s affordability and proximity to downtown, and the matchless patina and urban grain of its historic buildings and streets.

As more people and businesses move into the neighborhood, the Chinatown-International District’s greatest opportunities and attributes also become its challenges: how can this neighborhood evolve yet maintain its soul? How can its long-term, multi-generational enterprises thrive alongside new retail, restaurants, and businesses? What pathway to smart growth will infuse the neighborhood with new energy yet keep it affordable, authentic, and diverse?
