AFRICATOWN SEEKS COMMUNITY INPUT AT SECOND MEETING TO PLAN DEVELOPMENT OF  AFRICATOWN PLAZA THIS THURSDAY (5/23)




Following the monumental achievement of planning, developing and opening the Liberty Bank Building in the Central District, which culminated this past March, community members are invited to contribute their feedback and ideas to the next phase of Africatown’s housing resurgence, Africatown Plaza.

Africatown Plaza is a new affordable housing and commercial retail development that will be located on the site of the old Midtown Plaza on 23rd and Union directly across from the Liberty Bank Building. Africatown Plaza will have 138 affordable housing units and several thousand square feet of retail space and will be opened in just over two years from now. Right now Africatown Plaza is in its planning phase and the Africatown Community Land Trust is in need of input from the community. 

“This is a really important meeting to plan the design of Africatown Plaza and to involve the community in the process”, says TraeAnna Holiday, a representative for The Africatown Community Land Trust.  “We want to hear the community’s voice on the design aspect of Africatown Plaza”, she adds.

The Africatown Plaza Community Design Meeting is scheduled for this Thursday May 23, 2019 at The Liberty Bank Building (1405 24th Ave, Seattle) at 5:30 (to roughly 8pm).  

One of the major intentions of the meeting is to gather and record community feedback to help determine direction for the design of Africatown Plaza.
