Building New Neighborhoods For More Than Thirty Years


Over the past 30 years, Thorndike has built more than 2,000 homes and apartments in the Greater Boston Area and is the recipient of more than thirty national and regional awards for excellence. Thorndike has been included in multiple lists of top builders in the region and nation and in 1999 Lloyd Geisinger, founder of Thorndike Development was named Builder of the Year by the Greater Boston Association of Homebuilders.

Reinventing Tradition

Each Thorndike neighborhood is Traditional By Design, featuring tree lined walkable streets, places for children and pets to stretch their legs, neighborhood parks and light filled homes that connect living spaces with outdoor spaces, encourage residents to get to know one another and allow developments to grow into neighborhoods.

New England Craftsmanship

Thorndike builds homes that are timeless in their design, rich in New England tradition. Whether it is decorative iron at Chapmans Reach in Marina Bay, Quincy, a fascia soffit detail for casual coastal towns like Thorndike at the Pinehills in Plymouth, or a classic granite post and painted wood rail detail surrounding the Village Green at Red Mill Village in Norton, every Thorndike community connects with its surroundings.

Commitment to Quality

With more than thirty awards for excellence from its peers, Thorndike knows quality. Our commitment begins with the land that we choose to buy, continues as we painstakingly work with our award winning design professionals to craft a land plan that is at peace with its surroundings, and extends to our veteran construction team that has been together at Thorndike for more than twenty years. Every aspect of the design, development and construction process receives the same attention to detail and relentless commitment to delivering the very best our industry can offer.

Building Community

Thorndike believes first and foremost in building communities that encourage its owners to become neighbors and allows its developments to become neighborhoods. Homes are designed to provide privacy where it is important but encourage neighbors to get to know one another. Front porches, pedestrian friendly tree lined streets, victory gardens where you can finally try that green thumb, dog parks, and fitness centers, are hallmarks of a Thorndike Neighborhood. These amenities, coupled with village greens designed for Friday night outdoor movies and summer concerts are some of reasons that our longstanding motto has been to “Come for a visit but be prepared to stay for a lifetime.”
