NW Asian Weekly: Plans for new ‘parklet’ unveiled for Seattle’s Chinatown

International district parkletPlans to build a public ‘parklet’ in Seattle’s Chinatown district have been unveiled by the Chinatown-International District Business Improvement Area (CIDBIA).

Neighborhood community leaders have launched a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to build the public parklet which will be located on 6th Avenue South at South Weller Street.

“This is a perfect opportunity to take completely dead space and program it in a way that invites people to enjoy the neighborhood while bringing life to our streets and sidewalks,” said Don Blakeney, executive director of the Chinatown-ID BIA.

This project follows other improvements to the district, including the installation of translated street signs and a program to revitalize the neighborhood’s historic alleys.
