The Urbanist recently kicked-off its 2017 tour season with a visit to High Point in West Seattle. Seattle Housing Authority’s Senior Housing Developer, George Nemeth, began the 90-minute walking tour with a history lesson, describing how the World War II era public housing units were redeveloped into an award-winning mixed-income community. The group explored the property while learning about High Point’s sustainable design, natural drainage system and community gardens. The Urbanist, a nonprofit, examines urban policies and serves as a resource for promoting and sharing ideas, creating community, and improving the places we live.
