R. Warren Norman

Warren Norman Company was started in 1948 by Warren Norman Sr.
Mr. Norman started his career by building homes and neighborhoods in Rock Hill, SC. He was a land lover, and put his life’s work back into land holdings, primarily in the York and Lancaster SC areas. In the 1970’s, Mr. Norman ventured into commercial real estate, primarily as a result of land positions obtained over time. In 1975, Ralph Norman joined his father in the business. In 1982, David Norman joined his father and brother in the family business. Between the 1970’s through the 1990’s, Warren Norman Company focused on home building, residential development and commercial development. The shift to primarily commercial development occurred in the late 1980’s when Mr. Norman sold land for the new mall off of Dave Lyle Blvd. in Rock Hill, SC. Much of the 1990’s was spent developing around that commercial corridor. In 1999, Warren Norman III joined the family business, and has focused primarily on commercial development. Lane Norman joined the family business in 2013 focusing on the General Contracting Division. From 2000-Current, Warren Norman Company has developed over 800,000 sq. ft. of commercial property. Warren Norman Company also owns and invests in Hotel and storage properties in the Carolinas. Warren Norman Company manages all of its holdings, which total over 100 tenants & over 1 Million square feet of commercial space.
