Between 2007 and 2013, the Grubb Ventures team created a tasteful and compatible urban infill neighborhood, maximizing land use and incorporating Energy Star green features. The Oaks set a new standard of excellence for quality and land stewardship for residential developments in Raleigh. Home prices ranged from the high $600s to $1 million and were built by a select group of quality custom homebuilders with one thing in common: the desire to make every home unique. All homes were designed to blend in with the existing neighborhood with specific requirements such as no front-load garages that had to be approved by the Architectural Review Board.

Background: Grubb Ventures purchased the 1950s-vintage, 200-unit Whitaker Park apartments in 2005, located on the edge of historic Anderson Heights, a few blocks from Five Points. The team decided that even though density allowed 10-15 units/acre, the highest and best property use, considering the surrounding neighborhood, would be approximately five single-family units/acre.

For every home sold, Grubb Ventures made a donation to the nonprofit Trees Across Raleigh. Other green measures included the re-use of existing neighborhood streets and partnering with Wake County Habitat for Humanity to deconstruct the original Whitaker apartments that stood in this location, salvaging hardwood floors, cabinets, and more.

Builders included Dixon/Kirby and Company, Poythress Homes, Legacy Homes, and Saussy Burbank.

The Architectural Review Board consisted of architect Cari W. Jones, AIA, NCARB of Cari Jones Architecture, residential designer Carter Skinner, and Gordon Grubb.

Accolades: The Oaks at Fallon Park was twice voted by the readers of Midtown Magazine as “Best Address to Live.”
