The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and the Portland Development Commission are developing design guidelines for the New Chinatown/Japantown Historic District. This 10-block historic district was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 because of the area’s significant history and heritage of Asian ethnic culture, industry, commerce and architecture. Once adopted by City Council, the Design Guidelines will be used as approval criteria to be met as part of historic resource reviews of both new construction and exterior alterations/additions to existing buildings.
The New Chinatown/Japantown Historic District Design Guidelines were adopted by the Portland City Council on September 28, 2017, and apply to alteration, addition and new construction projects reviewed after the October 28, 2017, effective date.
