New Forum is a Charlotte-based real estate development, management & operating firm. Our portfolio includes mixed-use commercial, multi-family, senior living & hospitality.




Community Building is at the core of all New Forum projects. From developing the first mixed-use community in Charlotte to hiring dedicated activity directors in our senior living communities. We believe thoughtfully designed, dynamic spaces foster authentic relationships between employees, residents, and visitors to our communities and businesses.
