Description:In 2012, a pedestrian promenade named “Chinatown” was inaugurated in the city of San José, Costa Rica. In this article presents an analysis of the territorial production of this project as an instrument of power resulting from global processes and promoter of an urban space policy. To achieve this objective, a documentary research and field work was carried out. The study presents a critique of the way in which this project was conceived, justified and executed by the local government; and describes their trajectories and forms of adaptation. It concludes by characterizing the Chinatown as an instrument of power used to achieve a local political and economic project.
