New WSB sponsor upRidge at Longfellow Creek, opening tomorrow

This afternoon we welcome our newest sponsor, upRidge at Longfellow Creek, which invites you to a grand-opening celebration tomorrow. Here’s what they’d like you to know about this new development: What was once a blighted lot with abandoned houses is now West Seattle’s newest townhome community; upRidge at Longfellow Creek; 15 stylish townhomes surrounded by tranquil views of urban green space, brought to you by developer Mike Giomi of Terra Firma II. Located in West Seattle, about one mile north of Home Depot and across the street from the temporary site of Chief Sealth High School, upRidge sits above Longfellow Creek (photo above shows its “beaver pond” section nearby), with a system of bike trails and walkways that stretch for miles in either direction. Enveloped by its natural surroundings, upRidge feels peaceful and quiet, yet is just minutes to downtown Seattle. We all know the saying – it’s what’s on the inside that counts. That’s why upRidge is designed with quality features and amenities designed to enhance your lifestyle. Enjoy the best of urban living in one of these awesome new homes. Two-plus and three-bedroom homes, with variable floor plans, are priced from $250,000 to $310,000. A grand opening will be held for the public on Thursday, October 15th from 4:00 to 7:30 p.m. Please stop by and take a tour of upRidge and enjoy food from Olympia Pizza & Pasta. Visit or call Cara Mohammadian at (206) 650-9554 for more information. We thank upRidge for sponsoring independent, community-collaborative neighborhood news on WSB; the sponsor team, with info on joining, is all here.

    That beaver pond is very, very cool and is one of the many gems along the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail.

    Beaver pond is super cool! i forget exactly where on the trail it is… maybe opposite the temp. Chief Sealth HS in Boren building on delridge. good luck-it is a treasure! google Longfellow Legacy Trail and there may be maps that you can download.

    It is, but a bit south of upRidge, more like across from the Sealth/Boren parking lot – I got a tour from Mike Arizona, steward for the natural area there, while doing a little story before one of the monthly work parties, some months back — I will add the link here as soon as I get a sec to go find it, still in outage coverage – TR

    Hi all, the beaver ponds are right across the street from Chief Sealth High School on Delridge Way SW. There are 3 different dams the beavers have created. Go to to get more information on Longfellow Creek and the restoration work going on.

    Gosh, I can’t believe it’s been a YEAR since I talked with Mike for a little story on that restoration area (including the beaver pond/s) – here’s the link from October 2008:

    Ummm, “stylish?”

  • k2 October 15, 2009 (9:18 am)

    you can access the trail on 25th ave s it basically dead ends at the opening to the trail. easier than parking on Delridge.

  • k2 October 15, 2009 (9:18 am)

    ya…stylish, and ‘quality’ ammenities…pfft.

  • KSJ October 15, 2009 (9:55 am)

    k2 – what’s “pfft” about the quality? Just curious, really. They have all the usual bells and whistles and didn’t take the cheapest route. Wood floors, wood cabinets, slab granite countertops, etc. The interiors look pretty nice to me. (The location, on the other hand…. a little too busy for my taste.)

Sorry, comment time is over.
