Why Greenstone

Building Enriched Living & Lasting Value in the Inland Northwest

Greenstone CEO and His Family

A Note From Our CEO

For 35 years, we have built our homes and neighborhoods as an expression of how our residents want to live. We’ve put thoughtful attention into creating infrastructure that fosters community. Each community and home is designed around how spaces, big and small, enrich your wellbeing.

I live in a Greenstone community because I am truly passionate about the work we are doing. It’s a place where I’ve chosen to raise my family. It’s where we share life experiences with our friends. I’m close to the things I enjoy. The park, the farmer’s market and nature trails are steps from my front door.

There’s something really special about a place where neighbors are friends and life bustles through peaceful, tree-lined streets. It’s why I’m so passionate about what we do here. Our residents shape the places they call home into something better than anyone could have planned. Stop by one of our communities and you’ll feel it too.

Community Connection

Human-Scaled Design

A sense of place resonates in our community spaces. We design our neighborhoods to be human-scaled, not car-scaled. Our streets use traffic-calming methods to reduce vehicle speeds for safe walking and biking.

Parks, Trails & Greenspace

We’ve dedicated hundreds of acres to the comprehensive trail and park systems throughout our communities. Each park has a different feel and character — and locally-made public art celebrates the area’s history.

Tree-lined Streetscapes

Thousands of trees line the streets throughout our communities. Beyond providing a welcoming streetscape that improves over time, our street trees separate sidewalks from traffic for truly walkable neighborhoods.


When we break ground on a new community, we shape the future of that land for a hundred years to come. When we build a home, it’s with longevity, the environment and your family’s health in mind.

By buying a Greenstone home, you give back to your community. Together, we’re making a difference. Through the Greenstone Foundation and our New Beginnings program, we support local non-profit organizations working to make the Inland Northwest a better place to live — for all of us.

Customer Experiences

Urban Living

Ever since Kendall Yards began, I had wanted to live here. I am so happy to be a member of this community. Love the easy access to downtown, my work, and the Centennial Trail.

The Building Process

We had a great experience having Greenstone build us a home in River District. This was our first new construction home and we were very pleased with the way they handled everything. The superintendent was great about keeping the home on schedule and keeping us informed. I always tell people Greenstone is a very trustworthy builder that’s willing to go above and beyond.

The Design Studio

Greenstone has been excellent to work with from start to finish on our townhome in Kendall Yards. Our experience at the Design Studio was exceptional. We have worked with other designers with prior homes and Greenstone’s team is the best — in design ability, upgrades and efficiency.

Greenstone Communities

Greenstone does wonderful things where they develop neighborhoods and build homes — but their service to community is what separates them from the pack. I’ve been loving my Greenstone home for five years now.

First-Time Homebuyers

For us, building our first home, was a truly easy experience with Greenstone’s builders and interior design folks. We recommend them to anyone that is looking to build.

Pre-Sale Homes

We moved into our new Greenstone home in Rocky Hill in 2016 and couldn’t be happier! From the initial process — picking our lot, choosing our floor plan, working with the Design Studio and watching the progress of our new home being built — to moving in, Greenstone delivered on every aspect. We are very proud to say that we own a Greenstone home. From my family to yours, thank you!

Customer Care

I have been in my new Greenstone home at Eagle Ridge since 2014 and am very happy with my decision. My neighborhood is safe, my home is well built and any minor issues have been responded to promptly and professionally. I would definitely recommend Greenstone.

Moving In

We’ve been in our new, beautiful home for a few weeks now and couldn’t be more grateful! From start to finish, the Greenstone staff/experts and our realtor collaborated to ensure our needs were met and that everyone was on the same page. We received consistent updates throughout the build process and any question or concern we had was addressed immediately. Two thumbs up, #GreenstoneHomes!

Welcome Home!

We had a fantastic experience with our new home. We absolutely recommend Greenstone’s homes and communities to everyone we know.
