Reed’s Crossing is a true mixed-use master-planned community, which is rare in Oregon. You may have some questions about what sets us apart, what the perks of new construction are, and why building a new home may be a more sustainable option. To help you get started, we’ve put together a list of your most frequently asked questions.
What is a mixed-use, master-planned community?
Put simply, it means “complete.” Thoughtfully designed with most everything you need built right into the community. From shopping and dining to recreation opportunities close to or even right outside your front door, Reed’s Crossing is planned to offer you a completely integrated lifestyle that feels like you’re staying in when you’re going out.
Who is developing Reed’s Crossing?
Newland is developing Reed’s Crossing and is the largest private developer of planned residential and urban mixed-use, master-planned communities in the United States. With 50 years of experience, Newland has been creating communities nationwide. We are currently developing more than 28 active communities in 12 states across the country.
How is Newland different from other developers?
Newland begins planning their communities by answering two questions; who will live there and how will they live? Newland creates mixed-use communities for people who care as much as we do about the connection of work, live, shop and play. We envision our communities from the ground up and bring our values of integrity, vision, commitment, and caring to our many partners and neighbors. The way people live in (and out!) of their homes is changing and we keep our designs at the forefront of what that looks like, which is what truly sets Newland communities apart from others.
Does Newland build the homes as well?
Newland develops the overall plan for the community, the infrastructure and the green spaces, then sells lots to builders who then own the lot until they build a home on it and sell it to a new resident. Newland also sets the design guidelines builders must follow regarding varied elevations, structural aesthetics, and colors to ensure that our community is as beautiful and diverse as the people and pets that call Reed’s Crossing “home”. Currently, we have five builder partners here: Stone Bridge Homes NW, Ichijo USA, Lennar, David Weekley Homes and Richmond American Homes. Holland Partner Group is the apartment home builder at Reed’s Crossing.
What types of homes will be offered?

Can a homeowner who purchases a model home keep the garage as an office or additional living space after closing?
The builder of the model home will convert any garage space used for sales space back into a useable garage. However, the Architectural Review Committee (ARC) says: “No carport or garage shall be converted to finished space for use as an apartment or other integral part of the living area on any Unit without prior ARC approval, pursuant to the Declaration.” Homeowners are advised to apply to the ARC to keep the garage as additional living space and achieve an approval letter.
What is a “virtual” home tour?
Virtual tours offer home buyers a remote, video-enabled walk-through of a property that will give them the sensation that they're actually there—or at least pretty, darn close. You can check out every room and corner with a few mouse clicks. Compared to photos and videos, this technology offers a more accurate and realistic experience.
Real estate agents used virtual tours before COVID-19 as a unique marketing tool. Now, online tours are more popular than ever, since they're often the only easy way for buyers to check out a home without physically entering the property. Virtual tours are recommended by the National Association of Realtors as the safest way to avoid face-to-face contact while shopping for a home during the coronavirus crisis.
Can I complete the entire home buying process online?
Most builders now offer homebuyers the ability to purchase their home online. Be sure and check with your builder for their process. We have even written a blog post, 11 Tips for Buying a Home Online, where we walk you through each step.

Why is the Community called Reed’s Crossing?
Simeon and Amanda Reed were early Oregon settlers. Simeon was heavily involved in the Oregon Steam Navigation Company (later the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company).
In the 1860s, Simeon and Amanda settled 5,000 acres in an area called Reedville, which covered parts of what is now Aloha and Hillsboro. In later years, Simeon and Amanda operated a hobby farm, raising livestock and holding harness races.
The “Crossing” of the Community’s name is a nod to Simeon’s railroad and shipping business interests, as well as the Portland & Western Railroad that runs along the northern edge of the Community.
What is the difference between Hillsboro and South Hillsboro?
The City of Hillsboro annexed 1,400 acres of open spaces, farmland, and developed properties, and petitioned to have those acres brought into the Portland Metro Urban Growth Boundary. In order to create a distinct community within Hillsboro, the City decided to name the area “South Hillsboro.”
Why do the streets jump from 209th to 67th?
Hillsboro recently developed its own street naming conventions, separate from the metropolitan Portland Area. 209th is under the Portland naming convention and 67th is under the Hillsboro convention.
