About Us

About Us

Northwood Ravin is a leading full service development, construction and property management firm. NWR blends the nimbleness of a small business, with a long legacy of success from its history at Crosland. Northwood Ravin develops and manages signature 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. Great care is taken during the design and construction stages of every 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 EnergyStar 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.
