*186-unit boutique, luxury community aims to fill market need with large apartment homes and unmatched resort-style amenities
Fort Lauderdale, FL-based Stiles Residential Group and Raleigh, NC-based Grubb Ventures are pleased to welcome their first residents to The Carolinian on Glenwood, a boutique luxury apartment community located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Raleigh. The 186-unit project was built by Clancy & Theys Construction Company.
The Carolinian is located at 2600 Glenwood Avenue at the intersection of Glenwood Avenue and Oberlin Road, inside the I-440 Beltline in the heart of Raleigh. The community overlooks the prestigious Carolina Country Club golf course and is just minutes from downtown and Cameron Village.
According to Jeff McDonough, president of Stiles Residential Group, The Carolinian brings to market options for a higher level of quality and more expansive living areas than have ever been available for rent in the Raleigh area.
“With the benefit of Grubb Venture’s local market knowledge, we saw an opportunity to fill a need for spacious luxury apartment homes and therefore designed this community to emphasize two and three-bedroom apartment homes that offer options for larger floor plans than anything else in the market,” commented McDonough.
“In addition, we are creating a living experience with a wide variety of amenity areas for social interaction to provide a sense of community and retreat – as well as a high level of service from our on-site team,” McDonough said. “Our goal is to create an environment where being at home feels like living in an upscale resort. In fact, there are more than 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space for residents to enjoy, which is more than many projects with twice the number of apartment homes.”
The community offers covered structured parking with private gated access, an outdoor rooftop lounge with panoramic views of the golf course, executive conference room, and three resident lounges. The Canine Club features an indoor dog run and play area together with a pet grooming spa. Apartment homes include studio, one, two and three bedrooms ranging in size from 600 square feet to more than 1,700 square feet, each featuring high-end, condominium-level finishes and appliances.
“We are extremely pleased with the market’s reception to our community,” said Gordon Grubb, president of Grubb Ventures, whose firm is also serving as the manager of the community. “People who have had the opportunity to tour the property are responding to the stunning design, superb amenities and central location. It is gratifying to see the building take shape with beautiful finishes and landscaping, and also share the excitement with our first residents.”
From a yoga studio within a state-of-the-art, 2,500-square foot fitness center to a café, canine club and expansive sun deck with salt water pool and entertainment area, the design of The Carolinian is inspired by the established, desirable neighborhood that surrounds it. Oversized windows and private balconies and terraces in all of the apartment homes combined with 9-10 foot ceilings and large kitchen islands with seating space provide an elegant and expansive modern home.
“We took no shortcuts when it came to the design and amenity offerings,” Grubb commented. “We aim to satisfy the needs of the most discerning resident, creating an environment one would expect from a high-end condo – paying meticulous attention to every detail, from the beautifully landscaped and manicured gardens to the works of art throughout the common areas that showcase the amazing talent of our local artists.”
Prospective residents can visit the community’s leasing center located onsite at 2600 Glenwood Avenue, Raleigh, NC, 27608. For more information on The Carolinian on Glenwood or to schedule an appointment, visit www.thecarolinian.com or call 919-787-7100.
