Located on the corner of NW Crossing and Mount Washington, “Grove” is a new three-building development that offers a public market hall, commercial space, parking, and housing in a modern and minimalistic package. Built on a 1.79-acre lot that’s stood empty for many years, Northwest Crossing states that “Grove represents the essence of mixed-use living, offering dining, retail, work and living opportunities all on one site.”
Grove was designed by Hacker Architects, located in Portland, and features very modern, angular, and minimalistic design elements. The design is very reminiscent of the nearby Range Apartments, featuring a mix of exposed concrete and metal with wood highlights and many large windows. The design and aesthetic of Grove has also been described as “Northwest Modern” and “upscale Bend casual” by other news sites covering some of the developments.
While the phase 2 residential building has not been built yet, the phase 1 commercial and public market buildings are largely complete, and the public market building is open to visitors. Most of the businesses inside the public market hall are also still under construction, however, some are already serving customers. One of these businesses is Waypoint by Bend Brewing Company, offering some of Bend’s iconic brews on tap. The uncompleted market stalls also give some insight on businesses to come, such as Left Coast Burger Co, Thump Coffee, Thaipas, and Greenleaf Juice. With the addition of a market as well, Grove is poised to offer an exciting and diverse selection of food options to nearby residents and offices.
