Parkwood Homes was founded in 1991 and soon became the principal builder in the nationally acclaimed Kentlands, Maryland. Kentlands is a groundbreaking community outside Washington, DC that helped spark a nationwide trend toward smarter development based on traditional neighborhoods. As Kentlands gained renown and received visitors from all over the world, Parkwood received several offers to expand outside Maryland and build in new master planned communities. After turning down many opportunities to expand into other markets, Parkwood accepted an invitation to join the founding team of builders at Stapleton, where America’s largest urban infill redevelopment would result in a thriving community of 30,000 residents on the site of Denver’s old airport. Both Kentlands and Stapleton are among the Urban Land Institute’s “Great Planned Communities of the World.” Parkwood Homes currently builds homes in Maryland and Colorado.
