Central District Seattle Washington

One of our favorite districts is the Central District.
One of the city’s most culturally varied neighborhoods, it is lively.
The Central District, meanwhile, has long been one of Seattle’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods.
Redlining and discrimination in mortgage lending had a significant impact on the area’s historically Black people.
The changes up until ten years ago were more gradual and inconspicuous.
For instance, as real estate closer to Capitol Hill increased in price, members of the LGBTQ community began to purchase homes in certain areas of the CD.
However, during the past ten years, prior to the great recession of 2008, many of our BIPOC neighbors were displaced.
Later, modern Green Built developers began to purchase more affordable land parcels and constructed many of the city’s original townhouses.

The most noticeable modifications may be found along the major roads that travel north and south (Martin Luther King Jr. Way and 23rd Avenue).
Large multi-use structures can be seen dotted among older single-family residences.
Between these thoroughfares, Cherry St, however, testifies to the established neighborhood.
Learn about the well-known Garfield Community Center, the NOVA alternative high school, a Thai restaurant managed by a family, the Twilight Exit dive bar, a number of Ethiopian eateries, and more.
The Central District is without a doubt one of the city’s most intriguing and unique neighborhoods!

Particularly recently, our amazing community has undergone a tremendous deal of upheaval.
The neighborhood has undergone some significant changes as a result of the city’s population and development boom.
Unfortunately, as gentrification has accelerated in the area, many of our BIPOC elders have been displaced.
