Norton Commons is a 600-acre traditional planned development focused on walkability. It is built on the neighborhood model of a mixture of uses and housing types in a connected network of streets.
“It’s tremendous to be recognized by our peers,” said Charles Osborn, III, managing partner of Traditional Town LLC, the developer for Norton Commons. “This award is further affirmation that we are succeeding in our goal of outstanding placemaking.”
Norton Commons broke ground on the South Village in 2003. North Village construction began in 2015, and it is already one of the largest residential geothermal communities in the nation. Both are built around traditional town centers focused on restaurants, services and retail.
