Norwood Beginnings

The company’s real estate business started over 50 years ago with a single triplex in Manitou, later expanding to include apartments, small retail centers, and industrial properties across The Springs. In 1978, we acquired a small piece of the Pring Ranch, naming it Sunset Mesa, and so the development of a new neighborhood began.

A piece of Pring Ranch, shown on the original map as “Nor’wood,” became the company’s namesake. Over the ensuing decades, Norwood’s portfolio continued to grow and diversify, including master-planned communities, office and industrial developments, and retail and mixed-use properties.

Today, Norwood is among the oldest and largest community development organizations in the Pikes Peak region.

“As The Springs has grown, so has Norwood. We have been building our team to meet the need for a growing city with a vibrant urban core. Together, we are building and will continue to build The Springs.”
