Norton Scott LLC is a privately held real estate developer and investment firm with a focus on real estate and operating business investments. Our development projects and investments reflect our belief that creating great places require bringing together smart financing, strong infrastructure, quality building, and civic and cultural amenities.

Norton Scott’s private equity arm provides our development partners with equity capitalization, mostly in the Mid-Atlantic region. Recent investments include the repositioning of a neighborhood shopping center; acquisition funding for the purchase and upgrade of an existing multifamily apartment complex; investments in affordable-housing, home builders and student housing; and, providing bridge financing for single-family projects and subdivisions.

We formulate innovative real estate development, investment and financing solutions that balance the needs of public and private stakeholders. Since 1978 our principals have provided over $4 billion in vital public infrastructure facilities—like roads, utilities and civic amenities—at a nominal and often zero-additional-cost to the public in 46 states. We succeed because of our unique ability to create appropriation-based and revenue-based financing, bringing landowners, builders and municipalities together.

Our principals serve as board members of The Fairfax County Public Schools Education Foundation and Public Art Reston, and support the Fairfax Arts Council, Children’s Science Center and Cornerstones. Professional organization memberships include NAIOP, the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce and the Urban Land Institute.
