Boss let you off the hook for a long weekend? Take a couple hours (tops) and learn about something green. Meet other folks like yourself who are interested in green homes and green communities.
High Point, located in West Seattle, is a vast in-city redevelopment that has received many accolades and both national and international awards. The first phase is nearly complete and almost fully occupied.
Get an up-close and personal look at the environmental aspects of this Built Green certified community:
~ Porous streets and sidewalks
~ Community gardens
~ Pocket parks
~ Pond and waterfall features
There are 3 and 4 star Built Green Certified homes for sale in the neighborhood. Some are new construction, some are resales with just one owner. If you would like, you can tour available models and resale homes currently on the market on the day of the walk. You will need to consult with the Organizer prior to the meetup if you wish to tour homes.
The organizer and tour guide, Wendy Hughes-Jelen, is a licensed real estate agent and holds the designation of “Built Green Certified Professional: Real Estate”. She has lived in West Seattle since 1997, and moved to High Point in 2007.
