Norton Commons - An Incredible Start for a Vibrant Pioneering Community

Louisville is a diverse and eclectic city which is reflected by the cultures offered in the countless communities within our city. Norton Commons is one of the newest communities spanning over 500 acres and which offers lifestyle choices as unique as the architecture and community itself!

So how did Norton Commons transform from farmland into one of Louisville’s hottest neighborhoods? At the beginning of the 20th century, a man by the name of George Norton had a passion for television and farming. These passions combined to create WAVE-TV which regularly featured agricultural segments pertaining to local farmers. Norton’s passion for television led to the nickname of his estate, WAVE farm.

After Norton’s passing, the WAVE farm was designated to be a new kind of subdivision. Mrs. Mary Norton Shands, Norton’s daughter, hired 2 local planners, Charles Osborn and David Tomes. Together they agreed to build the development in the style of New Urbanism, an innovative design concept that encourages environmental awareness with dedicated common spaces and features a wide array of housing. Andres Duany, a town planner at the center of the New Urbanism movement, was asked to help create a community that would connect people in a new way.

Today Norton Commons continues this tradition by providing a little something for everyone! You can stroll through one of the numerous parks, relax with afternoon tea in the Rose Garden or take a dip in Jimson Square Pool right off of Featherbell Blvd. The Town Center also includes over 60 businesses which can satisfy any shopper or restaurant goer. 

Norton Commons is truly a one of a kind community! If you are interested making Norton Commons your next home, check out the available homes!
