Do you know about High Point?

In April our office enjoyed a guided tour through the Neighborhood House – High Point Center in West Seattle’s newest neighborhood, built from the ground up starting in 2006.  It was both impressive and totally inspiring.  Besides being a beautifully designed building, it is LEED certified and an environmental learning center.   This center was built to be the “heart” of the neighborhood with support services and gathering spaces for members of the community and the home base for the neighborhood association.

In Phase 1 of High Point development, five builders were chosen to develop over 200 homes that were all kept to a high standard of green building.  The roads, parks and infrastructure addressed the community aspect of “neighborhood” and the environment in their planning and creation.  The result has been a huge success.  The High Point neighborhood has won many awards since the project began and now the community is really flourishing and growing.  High Point, like all neighborhoods, is not without its problems but the residents are coming together to make a community and support one another.

High Point is one of the highest points in all of Seattle so the downtown City views are impressive. There are many parks, trails, a community pea patch, and a man-made lake-that attracts a large number of water fowl as well as the award winning community center and senior residence. 

The development continues in Phase 2, and we look forward to the completion of more quality homes.  Homes in the High Point neighborhood range from $200,000-$550,000.  If you want more information about the neighborhood, or our new listing, just give us a call.
Warm Regards,
