The district, which was designated as Chinatown in early 2016, encompasses 119th Street to 135th Street on Northwest Seventh Avenue. The master plan was designed by Keith & Schnars and was comprised of the following details:

- Greenspace with a modern take on the traditional moon gate
- Open-air canopy inspired by the Enchanted Forest towering above southern gateway inspired by China’s Ming Dynasty
- Hotel above a parking structure and open-air park
- Vertical gardens comprised of “Supertrees,” which provide shading, planting, solar/rainwater collection, and structural support support for an elevated walkway
