The Camas/Washougal Area Welcomes a Vibrant New Community

Kingston Homes is involved in developing a 100-acre parcel for a new single-family home community called NorthSide. Construction began on the first phase of this 281-lot multi-phase community this past June. The project will eventually add nearly 700 residents to one of the fastest-growing areas in Clark County, WA. City officials say it would be among the city’s largest ever (The Columbian, 2019).

Bordering Camas, WA, in the Woodburn Hill area of Washougal, WA, NorthSide will offer residents views to the north over the Cascade Foothills and to the south over the Columbia River. Forested hillsides, parks, wildlife, rivers, lakes, and walking trails are also abundant, making it an ideal place to live for outdoor activities. It’s perfect for those who desire a laid-back suburban lifestyle close to bustling city centers with arts, entertainment, and popular family events.

NorthSide is expected to be completed in six phases, with lot sizes ranging from over 15,000 square feet at the hilltop of the project’s south side adjacent to Lookout Ridge to 4,000 square feet on the north side near 23rd Street.

The first development phase offers 112 single-family building lots with new custom homes starting in the $800,000 range, with several lots featuring skyline views overlooking the surrounding area.

One of the main objectives in the planning of this community is to preserve the area’s natural beauty. Besides 33.5 acres of expansive green space, the community will include more than two miles of walking trails, a community park, and public viewpoints on a connected trail system. A prominent feature will be innovative landscaping in place of retaining walls to enhance the area’s visual appeal and create privacy for residents.

Residents of NorthSide will enjoy the added benefit of living in the highly-rated Camas School District. Listed as one of the top 5% of school districts in Washington, it’s a preferred school district for growing families moving to the area. It’s also the perfect place for those relocating from outside regions due to its vicinity to Portland.
