N.P. Hotel

The Northern Pacific Hotel (N.P.) is located in Seattle’s Japantown District and owned by SCIDpda. It is certified by the National Park Service with significance as a cultural center for Japanese immigrants in the 1920s. The adaptive reuse included historically accurate rehabilitation of the total exterior and interior common areas while the hotel rooms were selectively demolished and remodeled into 34 apartments and 18 dormitory style rooms. A new common lounge and kitchen is provided so tenants can schedule gatherings and the historic lobby and storefronts were restored. Reconstruction of the Maneki Restaurant (the oldest restaurant in the Japantown area) is an important part of the District’s cultural heritage. Project funding included Historic Tax Credits, low-income housing tax credits, and other Federal, State, City, and private sources. It was completed with State and Federal contract requirements. The project received the State Historic Preservation Officer’s Award and an Award of Merit from The Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. The N.P. Hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
