Builder Spotlight

New Leaf


New Leaf Builders is a local

Charleston homebuilder with a

passion for the Lowcountry

and a focus on responsible

building standards.

Established in 2010 by Grant Zinkon and Adam Baslow, New Leaf

Builders is an award-winning custom and semi-custom homebuilder

with communities on James Island, Johns Island, West Ashley and most

recently in North Charleston.

“We believe there’s no place quite like home. Through our craft, our

team strives to celebrate, preserve and uplift this remarkable region,”

says Adam Baslow, co-founder.

New Leaf Builders has received local and regional recognition for its

dedication to environmentally responsible building techniques. One of

its best known communities, Fox Hollow located on James Island, was

awarded the Charleston Trident Home Builders Association “Best New

Community” in 2013 and is a National Wildlife Federation Certified

Wildlife Habitat. Fox Hollow is a low impact development that utilizes

the most advanced eco-friendly materials including insulated concrete

forms (ICF) and radiant roof barriers to help deflect the sun’s UV Rays,

with added features such as individual composters, rain cisterns and lot-

specific bio swales for storm water runoff.

“One of the core values at New Leaf Builders is to maintain the natural

integrity of any area where we build,” says Baslow.

Whether the project is a semi-custom home, custom home or new

community, New Leaf takes a hands-on approach to each project,

completing them with thoroughness while employing environmentally

responsible building techniques.

“From the moment the foundation is poured to the time the keys

are handed over to the new owner, New Leaf is active, present, and

attentive,” says Grant Zinkon, co-founder.

Staying at the forefront of the new construction industry requires superb

building materials from sound sources. It requires an understanding of

homebuilding trends as well as an innovative approach to reading where

the market is heading next.

The Charleston area has been a source of inspiration for New Leaf

Builders. “The abundance of rich material sources and expertise in our

area enables us to stay dynamic,” says Grant Zinkon, co-owner.

New Leaf Builders works with an expansive list of local talent that

is hand-selected to provide the absolute best building materials and

design elements to its clients.

New Leaf’s personalized

approach to semi-custom

building grants buyers the

opportunity to collaborate

with their design team

ensuring that their cabinets,

surfaces, lighting, hardware

and all other decorative

elements pull together a well

refined space that will be

loved for years to come.

One homeowner commented

on the New Leaf’s remarkable

craftsmanship and impressive

design: “Three areas of our

home that are quite impressive

are the recycled glass bar, the

huge walk-in shower, and the

custom built fireplace!”
