A Hidden Gem in Ridgefield: “Pioneer East” Launches Phase II
Posted September 23, 2018 in Special Features
Only the real old school locals and historians remember Ridgefield for its potato-farming past. What really put Ridgefield on the map was the American moving equipment and storage rental company, U-Haul, which was founded there in the 1940s. The area has slowly and steadily gained an appeal to business and industry ever since. Now, as the fastest growing city in Southwest Washington, Ridgefield is becoming a mecca for commercial and residential development. Yet, because so much of the pastoral heritage remains intact, Ridgefield still has a “country” feel. Not only is this area a nature lover’s paradise with the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge and riverfront marina right there, but residents looking for a variety of entertainment enjoy the nearby Ilani Casino Resort, North County Winery Loop, and Main Street America charm of downtown Ridgefield. For commuters, it’s just 23 miles to Portland.
A Hidden Gem
While most of the residential development has been mostly springing up on the west side of the freeway, there is a little known “hidden gem” just off the freeway on the east side. There you will find Pioneer East Ridgefield, another quality new home construction development by Cedars Construction and Romano Capital. This new home subdivision is the second phase of a 201-lot community of detached, single-family homes.
“We’re very excited to launch phase two of this fantastic community,” said Michael Shanaberger, Director of Sales and Marketing for Romano Construction Services.
Shanaberger feels the same excitement for the opening of Pioneer East Ridgefield as he did for the recent opening of Two Creeks Camas, located next to Camas Meadows, another “active, social” community owned and developed by Romano Capital, and widely known for its popular pickleball courts. While Pioneer East Ridgefield will not feature pickleball courts, the community has many of the same quality features and lifestyle offerings. He says the highlight he likes to boast about this new community is the several-mile nature trail that encircles it, with a picnic table, viewing benches, and more. Other outdoor recreation offerings include plans for a sport court as well as a park with a play structure. Some of the homes also have a backdrop of green space. These assets make this community attractive to any demographic, from young families to retirees.
Pioneer East Ridgefield sits just minutes east of all the nature and recreational opportunities of the Columbia River and the Ridgefield boat marina. The Port of Ridgefield also has a project in the works for the commercial development of the 40-acre waterfront site that will extend from the downtown area.
Wine lovers will appreciate the proximity to some of the best wines of Southwest Washington. There are three wineries within a three-mile radius of Pioneer East Ridgefield. Sports lovers will enjoy the newly opened Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex, a 53-acre outdoor facility for sports, recreation, and education. The sports facility will be the home of The Raptors, a new West Coast League team.
There are also new vital services coming to the area such as a Rosauer’s, which will be Ridgefield’s first grocery store. Also, a new Vancouver Clinic location. Both will be just two miles from the Pioneer East Ridgefield community.
Other projects on the horizon include a Clark College satellite campus, and a Peace Health facility.
