High Point, Then and Now
In 2001, a vision began to emerge of High Point as a mixed-income, mixed-ethnicity community, with new streets, parks and amenities knitted more closely into the fabric of West Seattle. A community planning process engaged residents and neighbors in a process of fleshing out this vision. In 2004, with special Title VI funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, construction began on what you can now see as one of Seattle’s (and the nation’s) most successful urban renewal efforts. A community rich with diversity, amenities and a commitment to a healthy, sustainable and neighborly lifestyle. LEARN MORE
