Northwood Ravin is a leading full service development, construction and property management firm serving the Southeast. NWR blends the nimbleness of a small business, with a long legacy of success from its history at Crosland as its residential, contracting and market-rate property management divisions. Northwood Ravin develops and manages apartment communities and mixed-use venues with a singular focus: to create communities that foster healthy lifestyles, neighborhood involvement and appealing living environments.

This is the team that has earned everything from the NAHB Multifamily Pillars of the Industry award for design, mixed-use development and creative financing, to Multi-Housing News Design Excellence Awards, to CEL & Associates’ “A List” Award for customer service. Care is taken during the design and construction stages of any project to ensure the long-term durability and sus­tainability so that maintenance costs will be minimized and the buildings will remain aesthetically appealing for decades to come.

The team has also built or developed projects that are registered in LEED-NC, LEED-ND pilot program and LEED-CS programs, EarthCraft and Energy Star® programs. One of our most recent projects developed in Durham, Trinity Commons, is LEED® registered and was the first multifamily rental project to achieve LEED Silver certification in Eastern North Carolina.
