Building for Generations. Dedicated Quality. Forward Thinking. Responsible Builder


DA LI Development USA, LLC is the American subsidiary of DA LI Development Co. Ltd., a publicly traded Taiwanese company, focused on large-scale residential high-rise development. Originally founded in 1977, DA LI has evolved into a major force in community development.

Our first USA office in Seattle marks the result of an exhaustive search for a city that offers the potential for long-term growth and which supports our core vision of providing high-quality homes and living experiences. We expect to build a long and fruitful relationship with the US housing communities that we serve.


During the last ten years, we have successfully completed over 20 major development projects that range from affordable to luxury high-rises condominium towers. With a home base in Taiwan, we are uniquely poised to understand the needs of a wide range of populations in dense urban environments and has proven ourselves to be an innovator in the creation of holistic housing communities that support great professional, recreational and social opportunities. 

The Taiwanese cities in which DA LI has prospered are famously populous, dense and short on buildable land that requires great care and innovation to create desirable and livable new communities. We are a leader in the creation of planned living environments that provide amenities far beyond the footprint of any specific unit, allowing residents to enjoy a host of lifestyle assets that includes beautifully landscaped outdoor areas, working facilities, expansive public spaces and convenient shopping.


Our first project in Seattle, KODA Condominiums, arises from understanding that there is a tremendous local demand for exceptionally livable, new urban homes that are attainable by the area’s middle-class professionals. Our second project is a modern office tower across the street of Space Needle, and our third project is a mixed-use apartment/hotel tower.

As we grow in North America, we continue to innovate in response to the ever-evolving needs of the markets that we serve. Whether creating affordable first-time ownership opportunities or redefining upper-echelon living and working, we seek to establish a reputation for quality and thoughtful design that engages clients for generations to come.
