Historic South Downtown is…

The Historic South Downtown Community Preservation & Development Authority (“HSD”) is a state agency responsible for preserving, restoring, and promoting the health, safety, and cultural identity of Seattle’s Pioneer Square and Chinatown-International District neighborhoods.

HSD was created by the Washington State Legislature as the first community preservation and development authority in the state to respond to impacts from ongoing construction of major public facilities, public works, and capital projects in both neighborhoods. It is governed by a board of thirteen volunteer and elected directors that represent community stakeholders from Chinatown-International District, Pioneer Square and local legislature.
