When we last published an “Annual Development Issue” of Connections in February 2019, Westridge townhome development was on hiatus due to a slowdown in sales, High Street Linear Park was still a set of drawings, and the Alexan Heartwood was a construction site. We wrote hopefully about development projects of the future that promised new homes and amenities in our community. In this issue, we’re excited to share “the future is now.”
Two-and-a-half years and a global pandemic later, some development projects are nearing completion, and there’s hope that others, seemingly long dormant, may finally come to fruition.
Special thanks to Lucy Sloman, city of Issaquah planning manager and designated official for the urban villages, and Sarah Hoey, executive director of the Issaquah Highlands Community Association, for their tireless work in the planning and building review process year after year, and their assistance in the curation of this year’s development update.
