Ninebark is a new residential community developed by Killian Pacific on nearly nine acres along the Columbia River waterfront in Southwest Washington. Ninebark will raise the bar with a nature-oriented, carefully designed new riverfront community in Washougal.

Holst’s design weaves Ninebark’s nine buildings, public park, and open spaces into the surrounding natural environment. Eight apartment buildings house a mix of 242 one-, two-, or three- bedroom units using high quality, sustainable, regionally sourced materials. A freestanding clubhouse features a dramatic sloped roofline and an abundance of amenities.

The clubhouse’s main lounge will invite residents and guests to gather around the central fireplace, find focus in private seating areas, enjoy a fully equipped fitness center, and connect to the river. A fully equipped fitness center with river views will be near walking trails and the boat ramps, and a shared gear shed will provide outdoor equipment such as kayaks and bikes for residents’ use.

In Balance with Nature

Landscaped open spaces in the heart of the community and along the river’s edge provide residents with vibrant spaces to work, eat, play, exercise and socialize.

Inspired by Views

The placement and design of the nine buildings frame view corridors to the river and to Mt. Hood.

Ninebark aims to attract residents seeking an escape to nature and a smaller, more welcoming community but also do not want to sacrifice curated amenities such as local breweries, coffee shops and restaurants. The Port of Camas-Washougal’s master plan for Parker’s Landing will further enrich the area with a public marina, additional restaurants, retail, and commercial spaces to make this area an even more desirable waterfront destination.

Killian Pacific and Holst are committed to delivering places that achieve a positive social impact through the integration of sustainability, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and the arts. Ninebark targets sustainability certification while aiming for a net zero energy clubhouse building and favoring biophilic design.

Ninebark will voluntarily provide affordable housing units that are not required by regulatory mandates. Local and regional artists will be celebrated throughout Ninebark and the connected trails and parks surrounding the community.
