The NorthWest Crossing Concept
At NorthWest Crossing, it’s all about livability. Following the “traditional neighborhood development” concept that is being embraced in Bend real estate and across the country, NorthWest Crossing was thoughtfully designed to provide residents with neighborhood conveniences like restaurants, shops, parks, schools and trails.
Pedestrian-friendly streetscapes invite neighbors out of their homes, resulting in less reliance on vehicles. And NorthWest Crossing is anything but common. Architectural variety in the homes and commercial buildings results in a neighborhood with interest and character, reminiscent of older Bend real estate neighborhoods.
