Seattle’s District 2 is a diverse and vibrant part of the city that is constantly evolving. One of the most exciting developments coming to District 2 in 2024 is the expansion of the Seattle Chinatown-International District (CID).
Here are some of the updates and additions coming to the area, as well as what’s new in District 2.
The CID is a historic and culturally significant area of Seattle known for its vibrant community, unique shops and restaurants, and beautiful architecture. In 2024, the CID is set to expand with the construction of a new mixed-use development that includes affordable housing, retail spaces, and community facilities. The development will provide much-needed affordable housing in the area and will help support the growth of small businesses in the neighborhood.
Light rail expansion
The expansion of the light rail system will make it easier for residents to commute around the city and will bring new businesses and opportunities to the area. The light rail extension is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by 2024.
Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands
This project is a collaboration between the City of Seattle, Seattle Parks Foundation, and the community. The project will provide the community with access to healthy food and will serve as a beautiful and functional community space. The project is expected to be completed by 2024.
Beacon Food Forest
This is a community-driven project that transforms a public space into a food forest where residents can forage and grow their own food. The project provides residents with access to fresh, healthy food and serves as a community gathering space. The food forest has been in development for several years and is expected to expand in 2024.
This is a new development that includes affordable housing, retail spaces, and community facilities. The development is a collaboration between several organizations, including Homesight, King County Housing Authority, and Seattle Office of Housing. The project is expected to be completed by 2024 and will provide much-needed affordable housing in the area.
Betty Lau says
It’s odd the NWAW lauds the expansion of light rail for District 2 stating the light rail system “will make it easier for residents to commute around the city and will bring new businesses and opportunities to the area” yet opposes light rail for the CID in a prior editorial stating light rail will destroy the CID. You can’t have it both ways. So, NWAW, get on board and Move Forward on 4th!
