Noyes Development Co.

Noyes Development was founded in 1993 by Cedar Mill native, Peter Noyes. He grew up riding his bike down the very streets that serve our new neighborhoods. He raised children and now enjoys watching his grandchildren grow up in the same community. This deep connection to the area enhances the pride that Noyes Development takes in our growing legacy. We remain committed to building the highest quality homes and support our local schools and non-profits in order to preserve the character that makes our community so desirable. Our team recognizes they are a part of something truly special. They invest their talents and time to ensure many generations will call our neighborhoods “home” while they write their own life stories.
