Aspen Summit Village is a multi-phase, multiple use development located on the northern face of Mt. Scott in southeast Portland overlooking Interstate 205 and the Veterans Creek corridor. The terrain of the area is mostly sloping, with multiple creeks and areas of dense forest.
Because of its proximity to local creeks and forests, community infrastructure had to be designed to enhance natural features. This included designing roadways to wander along Veterans Creek, while leaving a buffer area to protect the creek and designing the water quality and detention ponds to be a wetland and trail system along Veterans Creek. Grading was performed and open space was provided within the project to preserve clusters of native trees for bird habitat. Aspen Summit Village includes the Scott Mountain by the Brook Apartments, the townhouse community of Red Tail Canyon and a neighborhood commercial center, Aspen Village Plaza.
