Norton Commons

Sprawling neighborhoods, long commutes, and dwindling natural spaces are leading some home buyers to seek a new way of life. They want to live in neighborhoods that have it all: work, dining, and other conveniences within walking distance; attractive streets; and beautiful public spaces.

Traditional neighborhood developments (TNDs), also known as new urban neighborhoods, attempt to deliver on this vision. And Norton Commons is bringing it to the Louisville area.

Norton Commons, in Prospect, is being built from the ground up to reflect several basic principles of New Urbanism. They include connectivity, mixed use and diversity, traditional neighborhood structure, and quality of life.
