Costa Pacific: The vision. The planning. The experience.
Everything we do at Costa Pacific Communities stems from our belief in connectivity, sustainability, and diversity in the most general sense of those ideas. We envision communities where each detail enhances the living experience of its residents. We call this Complete Community Planning.
We create neighborhoods where homes face each other, creating strong social bonds between neighbors. We move garages to the rear, creating beautiful, safe, and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks uninterrupted by driveways. We create pocket parks and green spaces that give children room to play and residents the opportunity to relax. We create bustling town centers that bring communities together by offering neighbors a nearby place to run errands, listen to music, grab a bite to eat, or visit the farmers market. We have found that allowing residents to use and enjoy public spaces helps create safer, more socially connected neighborhoods with healthier residents.
And because each community has its own unique personality, Costa Pacific does extensive market research before construction begins, and then works closely with the first residents to craft a neighborhood that satisfies their needs and creates a true sense of place.
Transit Oriented Planning is another one of Costa Pacific’s core strengths. Through land planning and design, we prioritize walking and biking instead of the automobile. That’s not to say our residents don’t have cars, but close proximity to light rail or commuter rail stations offers a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to driving. And because pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods have less need to accommodate automobiles, they’re often more beautiful.
Costa Pacific is also committed to redeveloping sites that, over time, have become abandoned or have outlived their economic lifespan. In fact, Costa Pacific is currently transforming several brownfield and greyfield sites into highly livable and attractive communities. One current, ongoing example is the redevelopment of the former Oregon State Hospital site at Villebois.
