                                                          COMMUNITY PROFILE


  Never heard of Blue Ridge? You’re not alone. Located in the northwest corner of Seattle,
  this tiny neighborhood is one of the most unknown and isolated neighborhoods in the city.
  Blue Ridge is bounded on the south by Northwest 100th Street; on the southeast by
  Holman Road Northwest, beyond which lies Ballard; on the east by Greenwood Avenue
  North, beyond which lies Bitter Lake; on the north by Carkeek Park; and on the west by
  Puget Sound. Blue Ridge was founded in 1927 by William E. Boeing.


  From the onset, William planned for the Blue Ridge hillside community to be a ‘residential
  park.” Today, Blue Ridge still provides that community feel that it did back then.     Com-
  pletely residential, the 200-acre neighborhood of roughly 450 homes offers         breath-
  taking views of Puget Sound, and local access to a community club, a swimming pool, ten-
  nis courts, playfields, and a private beach.


  Blue Ridge holds various community events throughout the year. Their Forth of July pa-
  rade and the December holiday period are two events worth noting.


  The first residences to go up in Blue Ridge were five large brick homes and were          spe-
  cifically built for Boeing executives. These original homes are still standing today and are
  affectionately known by community residents as “the castles.” The five original houses
  offered the most expansive views in the area and that’s why William chose to build them
  there, along Blue Ridge Drive.
