One of the hottest, and most successful planned communities in Bend, Oregon is undoubtedly, Northwest Crossing.
Northwest Crossing (NWX) is located in NW Bend and is famed for its urban style, and environmentally sustainable mixed-use community (residential/commercial). Within the community you’ll find a mixture of single-family homes, cottages, duplexes, town homes, and second-story (live/work) apartments.
This area is ideal for families, the eco-conscious and people who love both the outdoors and the amenities of city living. A dedication to traditional neighborhood design and “green” building principles abound: every home in Northwest Crossing must be built to be Earth Advantage Certified.
Where to Retire, a national publication and authority on retirement relocation, just named NorthWest Crossing as one of the Best Neighborhoods to retire. The Bend, Oregon community is highlighted in the May/June 2016 issue and features several NWX residents and why they love living here.
Bright interiors, natural hues and appealing wood tones grace the homes here, and the neighborhoods are designed to help people get to know one another and be good neighbors. Charming tree-lined streets, inviting front porches and sustainability are all hallmarks of the NWX area homes.
Businesses are also on board with the earth-friendly ethos; two of Northwest Crossing’s commercial district retail buildings were among the first in Oregon to receive LEED-CS Silver designation. Green spaces are everywhere, exemplified in a 5-acre circular forest-inspired park at the town center.
Additionally, the community of Northwest Crossing offers a community garden, neighborhood parks (including: Compass Park, Lewis & Clark, and the new 32 acre Discovery Park), local shops and businesses, award winning schools, ongoing community events (including the annual Spring Festival, Munch & Movies at Compass Park, Summer Saturday Farmer’s Market, and more).
Most recently, the Shevlin Health and Wellness Center is the newest addition to the neighborhood, which will include speciality medical providers such as High Lakes Health Care, and just announced, The Center Orthopedic & Neurosurgical Care & Research. Additional practitioners will include specialty medical services, general healthcare, pediatric, dentistry, wellness, holistic care, fitness, and veterinary.
