A Detailed Plan, A Critical Collaboration

We believe in community. Each East West Communities regional team, works in, plays in, and succeeds in the local market. Together with landowners, we establish a clear vision for each development that addresses key concerns with custom solutions.


When you work with East West Communities, you work with one of the largest and most experienced developers of residential communities in the South East. We buy land outright, or establish a partnership with the landowner, and then begin a meticulous development process to bring to life the vision for the property. Maximizing land value is central to the equation. We never rush the process. From securing necessary approvals to defining environmental protocols to selecting preferred builders, we carefully manage every last detail. Best of all, if they so wish, our landowners are invited to the table every step of the way.


What best suits a particular property? What land practices can we institute to circumvent the land constraints? What natural resources must, and need to be protected? Where are the market opportunities? How can we best position a new community for success? East West Communities thoughtfully and strategically approaches each new community, combining answers to these types of questions.


For more than three decades, East West Communities has been securing entitlements for large community developments across the country. In the process, we intentionally involve all key stakeholders who may be affected by the development, including local government and environmental groups. The aim is to anticipate and alleviate potential concerns, and develop suitable, sustainable solutions. We take to heart our responsibility to protect, restore, and regenerate the natural systems at work on the land we develop. Conscientious, conservative planning ensures East West Communities preserves the vitality of the environment, throughout development and long after.


East West Communities reputation rests firmly on the quality of the communities it develops, relationships it creates, and referrals it receives from town officials, agents, brokers, and land sellers alike. We believe in leaving an enduring legacy for each community which pays homage to the history and culture of the area, weaving each East West Communities development into the very fabric of the region. In this way, every community is as different as it is alike. Choices of amenities, covenants, and design styles are all reflective of this diversity.
