Where to Retire Magazine has named their “Top 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the U.S.” and NorthWest Crossing was the only Oregon community on the list. The July/August issue features the Top 50 list.
According to the publisher, Where to Retire editors reviewed several hundred candidates across the country during a nine-month selection process. This elite group of developments offers today’s retirees a well-rounded, active lifestyle and provides a positive impact on the economic health of the towns and cities in which they are located.
The publication cited the multi-generational aspect of the community that provides social connections and neighborly interactions. Its enviable location near recreation and built-in amenities likes parks, community garden, restaurants and offices also garnered editors’ attention. This is the second time the Bend, Oregon neighborhood made the list. Where to Retire included NorthWest Crossing on their 2015 list.
