Map of West Seattle's High Point neighborhood. The former public housing project was redeveloped in 2006 into a mixed-income community. High Point has received national recognition for its Built Green and Breathe Easy homes. Another key feature is the neighborhood's natural drainage system-- a series of wide planting strips that act as basins to help regulate and filter stormwater before they empty out to Longfellow Creek.
