JUXTAPOSITION OF THE OLD AND NEW
450 SOUTH MAIN STREET | SEATTLE
Chinatown-International District (CID) is one of Seattle’s most well-known Asian-American neighborhoods. Walking through the streets beneath the fire escapes of turn-of-the-century tenements, your senses are awakened by the sights, sounds, and smells of the Italian and Chinese cuisines and cultures emerging from restaurants and shops.
CID starts on 4th Avenue South to Rainier Avenue and from Yesler Way to Charles Street/Dearborn with storefronts spilling onto the sidewalk, the International District has become a unique enclave for a new generation of creative professionals and urbanists who seek a decidedly metropolitan living experience that is anything but generic. In February, the Chinese New Year is celebrated with dragon dances, parades and other traditional ceremonies, and thousands of tourists, residents and visitors join in the festivities. Housing prices vary from block to block, from some of the modest in the city to higher-priced dwellings drawing residents who love the desirable downtown location.
KODA is located at the gateway to this dynamic community and at the intersection of the Central Business District, Pioneer Square, First Hill and the Elliott Bay waterfront, placing it within easy walking distance to over 100,000 jobs, a vast array of residential services, several distinct neighborhoods and the city’s most compelling dining, shopping and nightlife. It is perfectly situated to take full advantage of Seattle's two-billion-dollar waterfront restoration, and is a short walk from the region’s professional sports venues. KODA is immediately adjacent to the new regional transportation hub at King Street Station, making it the ideal home base for those with a penchant for trying new companies and career tracks.
