A Builder you can trust.

Thorndike Development has been delivering qualities homes and creating new neighborhoods in Greater Boston continuously for more than thirty-five years.

Setting the Standard for Excellence

Thorndike has been the proud recipient of more than forty-five national and regional awards for excellence including Best in the Nation honors on three different occasions.

We take waterproofing very, very, very seriously

For more than ten years Thorndike has employed Building Enclosure Science, LLC, a world wide leader in waterproofing, to inspect every window before it is installed and every frame before the siding goes on. We sleep better at night knowing that we have gone the extra mile to insure that your home is weathertight and we think you will also.

Your home is not a “unit” and your neighborhood is not a “project”.

Sidewalks, street trees, pedestrian lighting, front porches, village greens, and vest pocket parks are just some of the pieces that separate a Thorndike neighborhood from the competition. Inside your home, every room has been designed to allow multiple arrangements for furniture, and flexibility that allows you to live in a way that fits your lifestyle best. As part of the design process we lay out furniture in every room in multiple ways to satisfy ourselves that you will love your home not just on the day you move in but for years to come.

Condo Budgets built for the long term

With years and years of experience building lifestyle communities, we know what it takes to maintain your property to the highest standard. So you will not find any “builder” special condo budgets attached to a Thorndike community. Reserve and maintenance budgets are designed for the long haul, not based on legal minimums.

Customer Service does not stop at 5pm

We know that when things are not quite right, it can drive you nuts. That is why we have a separate customer service department to address items that come up once you have moved in. There is someone on the customer service desk 8-5 five days a week. But if your heat stops working in the middle of the night there is always someone to call.

No cars without steering wheels for sale from Thorndike.

We offer a robust options program that allows you to design the home of your dreams. But no worries, because if you decide you want to stick to basics, well, basics for us is still pretty darn good. Granite counter tops, hardwood flooring, five different cabinet selections, nine foot ceilings on the first floor, and crown molding where it is most appreciated, all comes standard. All you need to do is pick your colors. But if Wolf appliances are your thing, or designer tile in your shower is a must, we have a full time design consultant who will help guide you through the selection process.
