Crescita, meaning growth in Italian, is located at 2500 NE 8th Street in Bend’s Orchard District. It is Kôr’s second homeownership community developed in partnership with Housing Works of Central Oregon. The five cottage homes are centered around a common outdoor space and will be 936 square feet, 1-bedroom, 1.5-bath with a small flex space. 

These attainable, goal zero-energy homes will be ready for purchase in 2022 and our application will open mid-2021. If you are interested in applying, please review our Recommendations, Requirements and Preferences to see if you meet the criteria. We will announce the opening of the application process and the information session schedule in our newsletter, on our Facebook and Instagram page, and here on our website.
