The Developers

Form follows function that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union. -Frank Lloyd Wright

David N. Levinson

Having spent over 50 years in real estate development and construction throughout the country, developer David N. Levinson calls Anderson Creek Club the “crowning jewel” of his remarkable real estate career. Since writing his Harvard honors thesis on the British Town and Country Planning Association and studying property law at the Harvard Law School, it has been Mr. Levinson's dream to create a community that blended the best of the ancient world with the innovations of modern planning. After visiting the excavations of five Roman cities, Mr. Levinson was so inspired by their design of Anderson Creek Club to make the modern version of that same integration by creating the lifestyle community the Club offers to the public today.

Having participated in the development of dozens of communities from coast to coast, Mr. Levinson has appeared as a featured speaker at national conventions of the real estate and building industrybeing named “Speaker of the Year” by one such association. The Wilmington News Journal has noted Mr. Levinson's “creative genius” for both his development abilities and his dedication to public service.

Mr. Levinson has served in leadership positions of over twenty religious institutions and community associations, including the Boy Scouts of America and its National Eagle Scout Association. He was twice elected Insurance Commissioner of the State of Delaware, in which capacity he testified before both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate as an expert on financial matters in the insurance industry. At the invitation of their respective governments, Mr. Levinson drafted the insurance codes of the countries of Russia, Latvia, Estonia, Ukraine and Romania. He was the first nonRussian named as an official advisor to the Russian parliament, and he was awarded a medal by the Prime Minister of Latvia for his service to that country. In 1982, Mr. Levinson was the candidate for the U.S. Senate of the Democratic Party of the State of Delaware. Mr. Levinson holds an Executive Certificate in counterterrorism from the Institute for CounterTerrorism of the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzilya, Israel.

When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer by Walt Whitman

When I heard the learn'd astronomer,

When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,

When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,

When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,

How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick, Till rising and gliding out I wander'd off by myself,

In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars

Anderson Creek Club is David Levinson’s vision in ‘perfect silence as he looked at the stars’. He dreamed of creating a space where neighbors become friends, where majestic pine forests act as backdrop and constant reminder of nature’s magnificence and where the citizens feel safe, are part of a vibrant community and are offered a warm welcome home. A dream indeed – made manifest at Anderson Creek Club Community.
