Urban Works Real Estate blog Portland Urban broke news last Friday that popular Asian Food emporium Uwajimaya has made an agreement with Sockeye Development, in the form of a letter of intent, to locate a new store in block 33 of Old Town/Chinatown at NW 5th and Davis.

The post notes that a letter of intent is a good first step, but that there is still a very long way to go until Portlanders will be able to search through the startling gastronomic ephemera they now must drive to Beaverton to find.

Now, if we can just get that Hung Far Low sign back up outside of Ping, we may be well on our way to a much more interesting Old Town/Chinatown.
