The community is invited to learn and comment about the redevelopment of the historic Louisa Hotel, located on South King Street between 7th Ave South and Maynard Ave South.
The presentation will take place on Monday, October 27, 2014 from 5pm to 6pm at the Bush Hotel Plaza Level conference room at 409 Maynard Ave South, (please enter from Hing Hay Park). The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session. The public is welcome to attend.
On Christmas Eve 2013, a fire tore through the building damaging the west side along Maynard Alley.
The building owners have paired up with the Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation Development Authority to redevelop and renovate the building.
The redevelopment will occur in two phases. Phase 1 will stabilize the fire-damaged west side of the building. Phase 2 consists of the renovation of the entire building for commercial and residential use.
The 104 –year-old building will meet current seismic and building codes upon completion. Building partners currently include Development Manager Barrientos LLC, construction company Marpac Construction LLC, Structural Engineer DCI Engineers and Architect Bob Hale of Rolluda Architects Inc.
