Celebrating 20 Years of Community

“Our Home, Our Future, Our Commitment”

In 1998, the first residents moved into their homes in Issaquah Highlands. It is a place where front-porches and public spaces provide opportunities to live in community with each other. We will commemorate the 20-year milestone throughout the year, reflecting on this place we call home, while looking forward to the future and committing to the values that make Issaquah Highlands a special place to live, work and play.

Learn more about the 20 year history of Issaquah Highlands on our blog.


Today Issaquah Highlands boasts over 4,000 homes. We have our own community center, Blakely Hall. We have our own hospital, fire station, elementary school, retail, restaurants and services, plus thousands of preserved acres of open space, parks, trails and athletic amenities.

Our community is almost done growing. The future holds more homes, and retail and commercial development on over 20 acres of build-able land, in addition to the possibility of a new elementary school and perhaps even a college!
