The Laurel is presented by Southern Land Company, an award-winning real estate development company with market-leading projects in more than 20 locations across the United States, including Charleston, Nashville, Dallas, Denver, New York, and Philadelphia.
The founder and CEO of Southern Land Company, Tim Downey serves as the driving and visionary force behind a team of over 400 professionals responsible for a growing portfolio of communities that are redefining landscapes and skylines in premier locations across the country. Over three decades of continual growth and success, the Nashville, Tennessee-based organization has built everything from distinctive single- and multi-family homes to luxury towers, and from pioneering master-planned communities to market-defining commercial and mixed-use projects.
Southern Land Company was founded in 1986 on the belief that real estate could, and should, be beautiful. To this day, our founder Tim Downey cultivates an understanding that every project is an opportunity to create a remarkable community that boosts aesthetics, livability and well-being. Inspired by Walt Disney Imagineering’s desire to inspire creativity, innovation and interaction in the company and across projects, Tim’s vertically integrated business model enables direct communication between architecture, horticulture, construction and planning professionals.
With meticulous attention to detail, the people of Southern Land are driven to design environments that enrich people’s lives and contribute to the communities in which we build. Our goal for The Laurel was to create an address that was not only worthy of the final residential opportunity on historic Rittenhouse Square, but the finest luxury lifestyle offering in downtown Philadelphia.
