About Northwest Landing

Northwest Landing developer Weyerhaeuser bought the 3,200-acre former explosives plant site from the DuPont Company in 1976. In 1989, the DuPont City Council approved plans for the construction of Northwest Landing. The first homes were completed in 1994. DuPont’s population has grown from 611 in 1984 to more than 10,000 in 2022, most living in Northwest Landing.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognized Northwest Landing as an example of “smart growth” in 2006 (updated in 2012), published in Smart Growth Illustrated. EPA notes that “good community design led both Sunset and Walking magazines to name Northwest Landing one of the most walkable communities in the United States in 1997.” EPA defines smart growth as a set of principles for livable communities, including mixed land uses, taking advantage of compact building design, creating walkable neighborhoods, preserving open space, and fostering distinctive, attractive communities with a strong sense of place.Your Northwest Landing Residential Owners Association continues the commitment to smart growth principles. With 12 miles of trails and more than 500 acres of open space, all homes in Northwest Landing are a short walk or bicycle ride from woodlands and historic sites.
