Historic Name: Common Name: Ticino Apartments

Tax assessor data indicates this three story masonry apartment building was constructed in circa 1903. It appears to be a relatively good and intact example of a residential hotel building form the early 20th Century.

The property is located in an area that was historically Seattle's Japantown commercial district and is part of the International Special Review District. It is located outside of the Chinatown National Register Historic District, where many similar buildings can be found.

The Chinatown National Register District includes twenty-six historic hotels known as single room occupancy workers’ hotels. These were built to house the many Asian men that came to work in the lumber, mining, railroad and other industries. The extant hotel buildings make up the largest category of historic building types in the NR district. (Kreisman, 1986).
