Some of the design elements you’ll notice in Northwest Landing are:

2012 Real Estate Market Prediction for Northwest Landing?
Northwest Landing in Dupont is still expanding with new construction of single family homes, townhomes and condos. Right now, new construction is a popular choice for home buyers. This neighborhood will continue to have a strong draw for buyers, especially military buyers, due to its excellent location to JBLM as well as it is a mid-point for commuters who need to get to Olympia or Tacoma.
My prediction is home values will see a slight increase for 2012 in this area. I don’t anticipate any future downsizing in the military ranks to affect JBLM nor the housing market in Northwest Landing.
