Chinatown seems to be on the upswing with new projects.
On the later side, maybe by the end of the year, is a restaurant/bar coming to the Vine Street end of Chinatown.
It's called Far East Descendant, and it's now being built in a freestanding building at 240 N. 13th St., next to a parking lot at 13th and Vine Streets.
It's also next door to the former Big Brothers/Big Sisters national headquarters and just up the block from Nom Wah Tea Parlor.
There's not too many details to share, other than the cuisine - Asian, not specifically Chinese - and the owner's background, which is in architectural/design/real estate development.
