We understand that construction may temporarily disrupt your daily routines. As neighbors, we’re committed to your safety and will work to actively mitigate this disruption. The following tentative timeline provides an overview of what you can expect during construction. We will post new information and details as they become available in the “important updates” section below.
- Oberlin Road widening will cause road disruptions and pedestrian rerouting as directed by the City of Raleigh
- Tree removal and reclamation
- Road construction within the development
This section will be updated when there are timely, unusual and important updates to the construction project that may temporarily inconvenience neighbors. While there is nothing to report currently, check back for updates if and when they arise.
What to Expect
As your neighbors, we will actively work to minimize construction impacts on your daily lives. We will strive to be respectful, timely and transparent on the way to delivering an excellent final product.
The following are some updates on what to expect during construction and measures to address top neighbor concerns:
The Budleigh East project has been 14 years in the making. Every aspect of the project plan has been thoughtfully and carefully considered with the surrounding community in mind. Most of the subdivision plan adheres to existing zoning regulations. Two portions of the subdivision plan were approved for rezoning by the Raleigh City Council: the senior living component, Hayes Barton Place, and unanimous approval for the Budleigh East Apartments.
As neighbors who call this part of Raleigh home, we want what is best for our community and will ensure Budleigh East adds beauty, value and efficiency to our neighborhood. During construction, we will maintain open lines of communication and strive to be respectful, timely and transparent—working to mitigate disruption every step of the way.
Like you, we appreciate the important contributions trees make to our landscape and the air we breathe. It is because of that appreciation that we conducted a thorough study of every tree on the property, hiring arborists to inventory and assess the life cycle and condition of each tree. In that process, we learned that these trees are near the end of their life cycle. Most of the existing trees on the property are impacted by overhead power lines and driveways, and many of the root systems have grown into underground utilities. We also learned that many of these trees are unhealthy.
We engaged environmental experts, arborists and landscape architects to help devise a plan for extensive new landscaping for Budleigh East in keeping with the surrounding neighborhood. We plan to plant nearly 200 new trees—more than are currently on the property now—that will be properly maintained throughout their lifecycle to ensure proper growth over time.
As with our previous developments, we strive to build attractive communities that promote wellness through extensive greenscapes including lush lawns, trees and shrubs. The landscaping at our other developments in the Raleigh area, including the Gardens at Glenwood, The Carolinian, Oaks at Fallon Park and Bellewood, are all examples of our care and attention to detail on landscaping.
We have a proven track record of high-standard development that adds beauty to the surrounding neighborhood. This project will be no different.
What to Expect
In December 2021 and January 2022, some of the larger, diseased trees on the property began coming down.
In an effort to reclaim and repurpose these trees, we partnered with two local organizations, Raleigh Reclaimed and Warmth for Wake. Raleigh Reclaimed will help repurpose these trees and give them another life by turning them into custom furniture and building materials. Warmth for Wake, a seasonal energy assistance outreach program that provides fuel to low-income residents of Wake County during the coldest winter months, will use these trees to help keep our neighbors warm.
We designed the new Budleigh East neighborhood to facilitate pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular safety. Oberlin Road will see road improvements, new sidewalks and dedicated bike lanes from Fairview Road to Oberlin Middle School.
During construction, we will work with you to clearly communicate all planned road and sidewalk closures in advance and ensure that alternate traffic patterns and pedestrian routes are clearly identified. As currently planned, you can expect road and sidewalk closures with the widening of Oberlin Road in January and February 2022.
