Our Communities

To date, we've completed, eight connected communities in the Pacific Northwest as in-fill within existing single-family neighborhoods close to jobs and transportation. Our locations are diverse — from prime waterfront property near Silverdale, Washington to a bustling Seattle-area neighborhood, to a bucolic island town, to a tranquil woodland a bike ride from our regions technology employment centers.
