RALEIGH — Viewing the development of Hayes Barton Place senior living community from above is no longer just for birds. Contractor Brasfield & Gorrie is tracking the progress made at the new luxury Life Plan Community in Raleigh. Located on seven of the most sought-after acres in the state capital, Hayes Barton Place is slated to open in 2024.

The luxury Life Plan Community will feature upscale amenities and concierge services on par with grand resorts, with the reassurance of care should it be needed in the future. Hayes Barton Place is owned and operated by Liberty Senior Living, a division of Liberty Healthcare Management division.


As the construction of Hayes Barton Place continues, residents are eagerly anticipating the community’s amenities, which include casual and fine dining venues, a pub and library, beautiful outdoor spaces with paved walking paths, a billiards room, a card room, an art studio, media room, salon and spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center complete with an indoor saltwater pool and hot tub. The community’s design and material choices have considered the physical needs of aging adults, featuring wide and smooth pathways that improve mobility.

The residences at Hayes Barton Place are designed to provide a luxurious living experience. The Club House Condos range from 800 to more than 3,100 square feet, each featuring a covered balcony or patio overlooking outdoor living space. The Flats on Bicton offer elegant condo-style residences with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and a den. Each unit includes two-car private garages and is decorated with large front porches, high ceilings, crown molding and trim. The Terraces at Hayes Barton Place are single-family attached three-story townhomes with a private elevator. Each terrace has three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, and access to a covered patio with a wet bar off the third floor.

“We’ve been sharing drone footage during in-person updates that are held quarterly with Charter Club residents, the first people who have deposited and will be moving to the community,” says Thad Moore, director of development at Hayes Barton Place. “We show construction footage, tell them where development stands and answer their questions.” Most of all, the drone footage helps to create and maintain excitement for the highly anticipated project.

The Hayes Barton Place community will feature 169 independent residences, 24 flats and nine townhomes. The community is adjacent to Raleigh’s Hayes Barton Historic District, with leafy, mature trees and colorful gardens. Many neighboring homes were constructed in the mid-to-late 1920s, including various period-revival architectural styles: Tudor, Dutch, Colonial, Craftsman Foursquare and Georgian. Nearby, residents will find Raleigh’s Five Points district, which boasts some of Raleigh’s most treasured restaurants, stores and the newly restored Rialto Theater.

The independent living building at Hayes Barton Place combines Colonial and Georgian Revival architectural styles to complement the historic neighborhood. According to Moore, the five-story concrete and steel red brick Clubhouse showcases luxury and comfort. Emphasizing the seamless integration of Hayes Barton Place with its surroundings, the building draws architectural inspiration from timeless regional structures.

Landscaping also plays a significant role in creating a welcoming atmosphere at Hayes Barton Place. The transition from three health care stories along Oberlin Road to five stories of independent living is well-coordinated. Wide pathways improve mobility for residents, some as wide as 8 feet across, to allow walkers to pass each other without turning aside or stepping onto a less stable surface. Landscaping also helps to provide a buffer between Hayes Barton Place and a busy public street. Because memory care units house individuals who may experience impaired memory or judgment, they have more restricted access to outdoor spaces to prevent residents from harm.

As construction continues at Hayes Barton Place, residents are getting excited about their future home. Moore noted that everything is moving along smoothly.

“Residents are getting excited,” he says. We are in the early stages of planning move-ins,” he said.
