Single-Family Mixed-Use Community


Norton Commons


Louisville, Ky.

Norton Commons includes two mixed-use neighborhoods and a hamlet with 2,880 units on a 660-acre greenfield site. The first neighborhood is complete and includes a full range of housing types, from single-family detached homes to apartments.

Multi-family and office buildings with ground-floor retail have been integrated into the neighborhood and a central square is surrounded by mixed-use buildings with ground-floor retail and live/work units. The developer has done an excellent job programming the public realm to facilitate opportunities for community to thrive.

From the Judges
The master plan looks nice and feels authentic, with a wide variety of architecture and housing types, fully activated amenities, and great streetscapes.
