The Oaks opened in 2003, and is located in White Oak Township outside of Pittsburgh. The 5-acre site is located on Jacks Run Road (Route 48).
The site was at the bottom of a very steep hill in a suburban neighborhood. The plan utilized the sloping nature of the site to partially recess the building into the hillside. This split level approach allowed the common spaces to be enjoyed from both sides along with the upper levels to enjoy views from all areas.
Consisting of 69 affordable senior housing units, The Oaks is just across the street from the lovely White Oak Regional Park. Although secluded from the commercial district, The Oaks has a shopping center with a major grocery, pharmacies, restaurants and public transportation within a one-half mile distance. A property van is available to supplement the public transportation by making regularly scheduled trips to grocery and health needs stores, along with trips for entertainment purposes.
Amenities at The Oaks include game and craft rooms, a library, a beauty salon and an exercise area. These amenties combine to allow a comfortable lifestyle, augmented by the opportunity to participate in many activites supported by the staff and residents, making The Oaks “More Than Just A Place To Live”.
