Where Community is Genuine

Carlton Landing’s founders, Jen and Grant Humphreys, wanted to set a new standard for sustainable development by birthing a town that is financially viable, ecologically sensitive, and socially constructive. In 2008, they hired Andrés Duany of Duany Plater-Zyberk (DPZ.com), the world-renowned town planners responsible for places like Seaside and Rosemary Beach, Florida. Their request to Andrés was simple: create a place that would enchant people, foster a strong sense of community, and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Carlton Landing’s walkable master plan, designed according to the tenets of New Urbanism, was his enlightened response.
