Wheelock Street Capital of Greenwich, Conn. has acquired the 316-acre master-planned community of Jordan Pointe in Apex from national home-building holding company NVR Inc., the parent company of NVHomes and Ryan Homes.

According to the Triangle Business Journal, the land, which is approved for 440 single-family residences to be built by NV and Ryan, sold for $12.6 million.

Wheelock Street Capital will develop the project in partnership with JPM South Development of Raleigh, N.C. Since 2011 the two companies have also been developing Traditions, a 700-home community in Wake Forest.

“We’re proud to expand our investment in the Triangle market with a second high-quality community that’s well located in the path of job growth,” said JPM South principal John P. Myers. “The property is within 30 minutes of the region’s major employment centers – Research Triangle Park, UNC, Duke and downtown Raleigh.”

Home sales at Jordan Pointe are slated to begin in late 2015. Amenities will include a junior Olympic pool, cabana, ball fields, gazebo and walking trails.

The new community will be located on the western boundary of the Town of Apex, which was ranked as the #9 Best Place to Live in America by CNN/Money in 2013.

In other news, a joint venture partnership between Balfour Beatty Construction and Holt Brothers Construction has been selected to build the 288-bed, 75,000-square-foot New Residence Hall – Freshmen Living/Learning facility for Winston-Salem State University.

The $16.7 million project will replace the soon-to-be-demolished Dillard Residence Hall.

The two companies are also working on the City of Raleigh’s Critical Public Safety Center along with Clancy & Theys Construction. The Winston-Salem State project, however, marks the first joint venture partnership between Balfour Beatty Construction and Holt Brothers.

“I am proud to continue our long-standing and valued partnership with Balfour Beatty on this exciting project for the vibrant community of learners at Winston-Salem State,” Terrence Holt, president of Holt Brothers Construction, said in a news release. “When you align companies like Holt Brothers and Balfour Beatty that share the same vision and strategy, you get a team that is stronger together than apart. The synergy is exciting.”

Construction on the project, which is being designed by Lord Aeck Sargent, is expected to begin in February 2015.
