Pioneering in a traditional neighborhood
Norton Commons, near Louisville, Kentucky, is one of the few traditional neighborhood developments in the US that is currently selling well. Better! Cities & Towns has a new story on the troubles affecting many TND developers and the successes of a few, including Norton Commons. Life in the development of about 500 homes, and growing, is covered in a louisville.com story by a resident — a transplant from Manhattan. "We have restaurants, a grocery store, a wine shop, doctors offices, a nail salon, a preschool, a Pilates and yoga studio. A Catholic church and a YMCA are under construction," writes Tara Anderson. She feels like a pioneer. "I like the idea of living in a place with a sense of history, but I never expected to be creating the history myself."
