Quality of Life

Quality of Life

Grow Community offers a simpler, more intentional lifestyle where you can be mindful of your impact on the environment while focusing on what matters to you most. The nearby shops, restaurants and other amenities of Winslow town center offer convenient “5-minute living.” And with inviting gardens, parks and green spaces, Grow Community makes connections happen: neighbor to neighbor, you to the planet.

The Environment

Grow Community homes in the Village are designed in pocket neighborhoods around p-patches, generous green spaces and native landscaping. Enjoy the quiet company of woodland trees and an orchard right outside your doors in the Grove; stroll the sprawling central green that gives the Park neighborhood its name. Altogether, sixty percent of these neighborhoods are dedicated to peaceful, inviting natural spaces. Parking is underground, reducing impervious surfaces and putting cars out of sight (where they belong).

For All Ages

The neighborhoods at Grow have intergenerational living at their heart — because a true community should be as welcoming to a 73-year-old as it is to a 3-year-old.

In our new neighborhoods the Grove and the Park, sixty percent of the homes offer single-level living with elevator access to front entries, while the community spaces invite interaction and sharing between generations year-round. And accessibility extends beyond the neighborhood. You’re just 5 minutes from downtown amenities like shops, restaurants and theaters – even ice cream.

Community Connections

Harvest your tomatoes and take the extras next door. Read a book under a tree and find out who stops to say, “Oh, you’re gonna love the ending!” Or just take a quiet stroll down a neighborhood path and see who you bump into. Grow Community is designed to promote serendipity, the unexpected meeting, the little connections from which lifelong friendships spring. Grow a community together, and get as involved as much (or as little) as you want.

Solar Power

Grow Community’s first phase, the Village, is already the largest solar community in Washington with every single-family home and duplex powered by photovoltaics. We’re bringing the sun to our newest neighborhoods too, with solar arrays offered as a buyer’s option on every home including multifamily. And going solar has never been simpler. With today’s strong financial incentives, your solar array will keep your power bill low and even put money in your pocket, just for doing your part for a cleaner planet.

One Planet Living

Our neighborhoods are designed according to One Planet principles: ultra energy-efficient homes, zero emissions and waste, sustainable materials, locally grown food, resource conservation, wildlife habitat and edible landscaping, culture, happiness and health. Add them up and you have a new way to live, mindful of your impact and focused on a positive future for yourself and your world.

A 5 Minute Lifestyle

Everything your family needs for a healthy, happy lifestyle is within easy distance of Grow Community. Local merchants and grocers, the library, fine cafes and coffee shops, theaters and museums, parks, health clinics and schools … you can reach it all without ever getting behind the wheel.  We call it the “5-minute lifestyle,” and it’s just one of the features that makes Grow such an attractive choice for homebuyers seeking a simpler, more mindful way of living.

Bike Share Program

Don’t have a bike or need an extra for a friend? Grab one of the Grow bikes and head into town! We have a number of orange town bikes for our residents to use and have plans for a bike workshop in the future.  Just another way we make it easy to live a One Planet lifestyle at Grow.

The Right Path

Grow Community is designed to connect seamlessly with surrounding neighborhoods. Residents and neighbors alike can use the public pedestrian pathways that run across the grounds to reach nearby merchants and restaurants.

Grow Foundation

We envision a community foundation as an opportunity for the Grow residents to create and invest in sustainable business opportunities, such as renewable energy and to generate revenue from the shared amenities.  This will take shape as we complete the community.

Grow Global Connections

Grow Global Connections creates opportunities for residents who would like to contribute to sustainable economic development and conservation efforts, both locally and throughout the world.
