On a once over-looked piece of land that juts out into the Fore River in the heart of Portland, Maine sits Thompson’s Point where a development is planned that will be like no other. Live, laugh, work, and play here. Be transported by what you see and feel. Look forward to what’s to come because in the end, Thompson’s Point will be your place in Maine to enjoy life more.
When we are asked why do this–why now–we keep coming back to the same answer: the time is right, the time is now. Our vision is to create a live/work/learn environment that is open to all.
A transportive place like nothing else you’ve ever seen or experienced. Alive with kinetic, creative energy, Thompson’s Point will soon become an iconic symbol of what we all know about living in Maine: with creativity, vision, and independent spirit anything is possible.

As we grow and plans develop know this—we are dedicated to minimizing environmental impact and maximizing our dream for creating a place that lets the world know innovation is alive and well in Portland.
We are excited to be part of artist Sam van Aken’s groundbreaking project. Part art, part agricultural preservation, The Tree of 40 Fruit grows over 40 different types of stone fruit including peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and almonds. Sculpted through the process of grafting, the trees blossom in variegated tones of pink, crimson, and white in spring— in summer they bear a multitude of fruit. Primarily composed of native and antique stone fruit varieties, the trees are a form of conservation, preserving heirloom stone fruit varieties that are not commercially produced or available.
And when the trees are all planted at The Point, ours will be the only Tree of 40 Fruit grove in the world.
To preserve precious resources, we are pleased to announce the development of Open Orchard Freeport. Please click here to learn more.
