Crescent Communities is a nationally recognized, market-leading real estate investor, developer and operator of multifamily and commercial mixed-use communities. The team creates high-quality, differentiated communities in many of the fastest-growing markets in the Southeast and Southwest. Since 1963, the Crescent Communities development portfolio has included more than 57 multifamily communities, 20 million square feet of commercial space and 60 single-family master-planned communities. Its multifamily communities are branded NOVEL by Crescent Communities.
The multifamily business has experienced sustained growth since Brian Natwick, president of multifamily at Crescent Communities, was promoted to his role in 2011. Since Brian joined the organization, the footprint has grown to include offices in Charlotte, N.C., Washington D.C., Atlanta, Orlando, Fla., Nashville, Tenn., Dallas and Denver with 70 team members having developed 13,744 units and deployed 2.9B in capital. Not only does Crescent Communities develop some of the most sought-after multifamily communities, each residence is made more special by the integration of curated retail offerings. Over 400,000 square feet of retail space has been incorporated over the last three years.
Crescent Communities has also focused on the development of vibrant transit-oriented communities. As examples, NOVEL NoDa and NOVEL Stonewall Station both include direct access to the Lynx Light Rail system, while communities currently under construction, including NOVEL Atherton, NOVEL LoSo and NOVEL University Place, will also be situated with direct access to mass transit.
The multifamily team is skilled at developing a variety of building types, from garden-style apartment communities in high-growth suburban areas to elegant luxury high-rise communities in the heart of growing cities. Each project is designed and developed to blend seamlessly with the character of the greater community. Grounded in extraordinary locations, our award-winning developments embrace unexpected design quality, world-class amenities, inspirational elements of art, and neighborhood programming that fosters a deep connection to place.
