“Word got out in 2017 that we were getting ready to develop lots in Oldham County, and the response was overwhelming,” said Charles Osborn III, managing director of Norton Commons. “Our Sales Team received loads of inquiries, and before we knew it, we had a long list of potential buyers who wanted first crack at purchasing a lot in The Hamlet when the time came. Just last month, we were in a position to proceed and accepted deposits from that group. Now, we’re opening the remaining lots to the public.”
Norton Commons broke ground on its North Village in 2015 and has steadily constructed single and multi-family housing. The Town Square, which was completed in July, serves as a centerpiece for the village. In its design, developers borrowed from Italy’s vibrant piazzas. The expansive space totals nearly 37,200 square feet, about the size of Piazza Maggiore in Bologna, where the Norton Commons team gained great inspiration during a 2017 architecture trip. The North Village Town Center will be surrounded on all four sides by multi-floor live-work spaces, restaurants and retail that will expand on the community’s reputation as an independent shopping and dining destination.
