The Robles House — Tampa

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places and a city historic landmark, this 1888 house was preserved as part of the Grand Oak Apartments, developed by the Richman Group. Once the home of the Florida ranching and citrus growing Robles family, it was vacant and deteriorated for several years before being acquired by the developer. Completed in 2004, it now houses the leasing office and serves as the ‘front door’ to the 40-acre Grande Oaks Apartments.

Stephanie Ferrell was the Architect of Record for the rehabilitation of this historic house as well as design consultant for the new clubhouse, which was designed to be compatible with the adjacent historic landmark. She assisted the developer with the successful receipt of the Historic Preservation Federal Income Tax Credits as well as local property tax exemptions for historic properties. Her office also prepared the successful National Register nomination and local landmark proposals.
