new central hotel senior housing | seattle chinatown international district preservation and development authority (SCIDpda)
Originally constructed in 1909, the new hotel was renovated to upgrade housing for seniors. A new roof was installed in 2000, and in 2008, a $3 million HUD renovation provided new windows and a rainscreen siding system.
The first floor consists of retail space, a restaurant, and offices. The renovation included historic restoration of the exterior, replication of the historic cornice, accessibility and life safety upgrades, a new landscaped
roof deck, interior finishes, kitchens, and bathrooms.
Funding sources included City of Seattle and the Washington State Housing Trust Fund. The renovation was funded through New Market and Historic Tax Credits, and was occupied during construction. The project received Built Green 3-Star certification.
