Built in a suburb of Portland, Fairview Village is designed as a compact neighborhood, including houses with porches and stoops facing the street. Small parks are strategically placed throughout the development, and the streets are designed for walking and bicycling. The 93-acre development includes a mix of single houses, rowhouses, and apartments built among retail, office, and other civic facilities.
The civic component is particularly strong, including a city hall and public library, helping to create a heart for the surrounding suburban community. An elementary school is also connected to Fairview Village. A variety of shops, businesses, and services (approximately 15) are available on Village main street and Market Drive. A Target store is on the edge of the development and is walkable to village houses.
Before he died, Walt Disney proposed the idea for an “Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow,” or “EPCOT,” in which technology would seamlessly mix with day-to-day life.
