Like most Alienage's before the Blight, this area was dilapidated and run down. The elves eeked by on menial jobs as servants and underpaid laborers. After the devastation left behind after Rendon Howe's occupation, this area is currently being rebuilt. Buildings have been purchased from previous landlords and given to the elves who live there, and there is rumor that the teyrn intends on pulling down the walls. There are still high tensions between the humans and elves of Highever, but greater opportunities have been made available. Elves have been welcome into the Highever town guard and the teyrn's army, as well as steps being made to improve the overall quality of living of its inhabitants. Some elves are even going into business for themselves within the Alienage, and one currently partners with a human for a steady business in the marketplace.
