OUR LEADERS

Just as we focus on helping people thrive in our communities, we also focus on the people who make everything we do possible – our employees. After all, it's their diligence and attention to detail that power our business day in and day out. At Crescent Communities, we pride ourselves on hiring people we believe qualify as masters of their field – they drive their profession and our organization to be better every day. They “get” people, and they never give up.

THE CRESCENT COMMUNITIES WAY.
WE CHOOSE THE RIGHT PATH OVER THE EASY ONE.

At Crescent Communities, we embrace a fully integrated approach to development and view each community as an opportunity to create an extraordinary place to live or work. Or as we like to say, the greatest place for its purpose. From amenity-rich resorts to efficiency-focused offices, we look to create exceptional environments that deliver what matters most to our customers and the people who will live and work there. Our communities go beyond bricks and mortar to ensure long-term success and sustainability. By paying close attention to the fine details of each of five workstreams, we can work simultaneously and efficiently to create the best possible community in line with objectives. It takes a powerful combination of planning and creativity to deliver exceptional designs that differentiate our communities, all grounded by a clear focus on sustainable financial performance. 



BRINGING CREATIVITY TO DEVELOPMENT

Modern communities require a progressive, multi-disciplined and long-term perspective to create lasting value. Developing and community planning at scale and with consistency requires discipline. To address these requirements, we defined a design and development process with a clear philosophy to bring creativity to an industry that is often overly formulaic. We emphasize research and consumer insights to keep us focused on addressing market demand. We develop a vision and story to create emotional connections between each new community and the individuals who will live or work there. We bring together the best planning and creative talent to deliver exceptional designs. And always, these criteria are grounded by a clear focus on sustainable financial performance. This combination has proven to be a differentiator.

BEING STEWARDS IS NOT OPTIONAL

Our commitment to stewardship reflects our appreciation for the beauty of the environment, the cherished company of friends and neighbors, the gift of health and happiness and a determination to cultivate and preserve these benefits so others can enjoy them. Simply put, it reflects our desire not only to provide shelter but also to build community and change lives for the better.

KEEPING ART AT THE CENTER OF OUR COMMUNITIES

We strive to incorporate public art into many of our projects with the belief it is part of the fabric of a community – a welcoming identifier of a neighborhood or city. From Phoenix to Charlotte to Dallas, we've partnered with talented local artists to transform blank walls and parking decks into vibrant, colorful creations that draw people in to experience the community. Our artists have created truly unique and transformative pieces that have quickly become landmarks that make residents proud to be part of our community. Art is passion, understanding and transformative, but most of all, art is an invitation to be a part of something bigger than yourself.
