As with any business venture, when deciding how to approach a project developers have to think about whether or not it's profitable. Gordon Grubb and his team almost always have a second, maybe equally as important issue to ponder: what will their neighbors think?
When Grubb left running his family business to start Grubb Ventures in the early 2000s, he did so in part to focus on projects that were close to home. Among the benefits were more time to spend with his family (and whatever handful of professional and philanthropic boards he is serving on at any given time), but it had also helped him develop a reputation as one of the best developers in the Triangle. His area of expertise is the area.
We talked to Gordon about projects at Glenwood Place, on Oberlin Road, and the Atlantic/Whitaker Mill area, asked him about the hot topic of affordable housing and even found out what famous Raleighite got him to join the Peloton movement!
