The lottery for the NorthWest Crossing Phases 20 – 22 (“panhandle” along Skyliners Drive) was held last week with 42 of 52 lots available selected by 19 NWX Guild Builders that participated in the lottery. These are the last residential lots on the east side of Mt. Washington Drive. As a result, WBPC is currently seeking land use approval for a 175 lot tentative plan west of Mt. Washington Drive referred to as the Discovery Park area. Prior to any subdivision construction, major grading and compaction earthwork is taking place.


Taylor NW started the earthwork in the future Discovery Park area in late August and entails removing and replacing approximately 565,000 cubic yards of loose fill material from the former pumice mining operation on the property about 40 years ago. The earthwork will continue over the next 5 – 6 months. When completed, the subgrade for Discovery Park, adjacent streets and residential lots will be established.

WBPC anticipates completing the earthwork and the first phase of residential lots (Phase 24) in spring/summer 2014. Phase 24 will include 53 lots varying in size from 4,500 square feet to over 9,000 square feet.

The design of Discovery Park will continue over the next 4 – 5 months with park construction scheduled to begin in the spring of 2014 and completion in the fall of 2014.

Please join the developers of NorthWest Crossing for a community development update meeting.  At the request of several residents, we have agreed to host a one hour update for those residents interested in learning about the development work taking place in NorthWest Crossing.  Our intention is for this to be an informal presentation and dialogue,  with the opportunity for residents to ask questions.

When? Wednesday, October 16  4:00 – 5:00 pm

Where?  Discovery Park Lodge upstairs meeting room.

No RSVP necessary.

This is the first of neighborhood update meetings that we will be holding to keep our residents informed about the development activity taking place in our community.

We hope to see you there!
