For the past 20 years, Bend's "west side" has served as a major activity hub providing easy access to the city's finest parks, restaurants and neighborhoods. Needless to say, as Bend experiences the intense growth of late, access to the west side communities will become more and more challenging.
Completed in 2008, Discovery Park Lodge is the second Pacific Crest development on the west side of Bend. The lodge offers 53 independent living spaces for seniors in the highly sought-after neighborhood of NorthWest Crossing.
Discovery Park Lodge and Mountain Laurel Lodge are currently the only two subsidized living projects on the west side (psssst: we're working on the third too).

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
