Located in West Seattle, High Point is one of Seattle Housing Authority's redeveloped mixed-income communities. (Read more about redevelopment at High Point.) The neighborhood's old, worn out public housing units have been replaced with new, energy efficient homes, quiet streets, and more than 20 acres of open spaces—including parks, playgrounds, and jogging trails.
A Seattle Public Library branch, medical & dental clinic, and the High Point Community Center are all located on-site, and a new Neighborhood Center will be finished in 2009. The Neighborhood Center will be a community gathering place and home to a family center, a teen center, Head Start programs, youth tutoring and enhancement programs, Seattle Housing Authority's Job Connection program, and a variety of neighborhood associations.
The community is within walking distance of direct bus service to Downtown, Sodo, the Admiral District, the Junction, Roxhill, Arbor Heights, White Center, Tukwila, and Southcenter. It is also within a 10-minute drive of Highway 99 and I-5. Nearby public schools include West Seattle, Gatewood, and Sanislo Elementary, Denny Middle, and Chief Sealth High Schools.
