None of the architecture in Seattle is ancient, but some neighborhoods are older and more central than others. Japantown is one of these history-rich downtown areas. It's also the site of one of the most popular new developments in the International District. With superb walkability and transit, the address is likely to appeal to people who are looking to buy into the urban live-work-play lifestyle.

 

If you think owning in Downtown Seattle is unattainable, this new development might change your perspective. Koda Seattle will be a 200-plus unit high-rise right in the center of the city. Reservations began in early 2018 for the condos, which were priced from the $400,000 range for a studio up to around $1.3 million for the larger units.
