If you get me talking about all the reasons I love living in Bend, you may not get me to stop! My husband and I moved to Bend years ago and we've decided there's no better place to call home. We love Bend because it's a community where people wave at you, say "hello" and help their neighbors. It's a friendly place that's growing quickly, but still has a fun, entrepreneurial vibe and unrivaled outdoor activities.

NorthWest Crossing Community

The community of NorthWest Crossing is all about livability. Following the “traditional neighborhood development” concept of neighborhood design that is being embraced all across the country, NorthWest Crossing was thoughtfully designed to provide residents with neighborhood conveniences like restaurants, shops, parks, schools and trails. I love the pedestrian-friendly streets that invite neighbors to rely less on vehicles.

NorthWest Crossing Craftsman Home


Did you know that every home in NorthWest Crossing is required to be Earth Advantage™ Certified? This is a high performance home building program that addresses issues such as energy efficiency, recycling, building materials, landscaping, water and indoor air quality. 

Even the thriving neighborhood has been built with the environment in mind. Two of the retail buildings were among the first in Oregon to receive LEED-CS designation at a silver level from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). They also won the Green Building 2008 Awards of Excellence administered by the National Commercial Builders Council (NCBC) of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).




Community Garden

Discovery Park is the location of the resident community garden. Nothing was left out when reaching for the vision of sustainable living in NorthWest Crossing.


In the heart of NorthWest Crossing is the 5-acre Compass Park, which was the neighborhood’s largest park until the 31-acre Discovery Park opened on the west side of NW Mt Washington Dr in 2015.
