First Place Neighborhood Real Estate
Spanning 100 wooded acres just 8 miles East of downtown Vancouver, the First Place neighborhood features a rich landscape of flowering hardwood trees, mature evergreens and unparalleled views of Mt. Hood and the Cascade Mountain Range foothills.
First Place is an exclusively residential neighborhood whose streets follow a nonlinear pattern, adding to the area’s relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Several subdivisions are currently in development and will make another 300 housing units available to renters and homeowners over the next few years. Entrances to the approximately 85 square blocks of the First Place neighborhood are at Northeast 148th Avenue, 13th Street, and 16th Street.
Thanks to the efforts of First Place’s dedicated community association, the new front entry way landscape now reflects the traditional esthetic and natural beauty this neighborhood is known for. In addition to landscape improvements, the neighborhood association hosts a huge annual garage sale and acts as a liaison between residents and the City of Vancouver, giving locals a chance to weigh in on the issues that affect their neighborhood. A Ladies’ Tea, annual picnic and various beautification projects are also part of the association’s agenda.
