City Inside/Out: Chinatown/ID Upzone
City of Seattle

POLL: Do you support the plan to upzone Seattle’s Chinatown ID?

City leaders want taller buildings and more affordable housing in Seattle’s Chinatown International District, but will an upzone threaten one of the city’s most diverse neighborhoods? Supporters say the proposed upzone will create more opportunity and revitalize the area, but critics worry changes will threaten the neighborhood’s character and displace small businesses, nonprofits and some residents.
