According to experts with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) at the Construction Forecast Conference on April 23, 2009, the nation has already seen the lowest point in the housing industry and the current economic downturn. The NAHB expects to see a slow shift towards recovery in the housing market during the second half of 2009. According to the NAHB: "Moving forward, the housing market should derive strength from pent-up demand and demographics, which hold the potential for strong household growth." Amongst the communities homebuyers have found a renewed interest in is the thriving Villebois Village Center. Located in Wilsonville, Oregon, the Villebois community will change how you live.

Vancouver, Washington-based publication BUILDERnews Magazine recently featured the Villebois community in Wilsonville, Oregon, in an article about the current resurgence of the "village philosophy" when it comes to the creation of master-planned communities across the nation. This concept of "New Urbanism" actually hearkens back to a time before World War II when communities were designed around town squares and retail opportunities. Award-winning master planner and developer, Costa Pacific Communities, took this idea of a complete community when it developed Villebois. A bustling mix of attached rowhomes and condominiums, shops, sidewalk caf├ęs and more surrounded by a neighborhood of single-family homes and acres of park space, creates this socially sustainable, unique village experien...
