Charles Whitlock is a Builder and Developer in both residential and commercial construction. He began construction within the family business. His uncle was a Builder, and he began working with him as a laborer in his freshman year of high school. After 2 summers of labor he began carpentry, roofing and siding. Eventually he learned other trades as the years progressed. This, coupled with the connections that he made networking in the industry, lead to the formation of his own business doing framing and sheet rock, Pinnacle Construction. He began developing local lots and subdividing in his local town of Roxborough, PA. Shortly thereafter, I opened another company known as Whitmir Properties, a land development company, which focused primarily on finding, buying and then developing.
During that time period of time he expanded that network of general contracting by forming relationships with builders like O’Neill Properties, Baker Residential, Hankin Group, Erickson Group and Toll Brothers to name a few. Most of them were national builders creating opportunities to build bigger and better.
Some of these properties included: Stables at the Millennium, a 420 Unit Apartment Building, Ann’s Choice a 660 Unit Retirement Community, Perth Amboy Estates, that contained 61 waterfront custom single-family homes and several more.
They continued to expand as a CM for projects like the Community College of Philadelphia West Regional and well-known restaurants like Serpico, located in Philadelphia, for Steven Starr. They developed many apartment buildings and retail spaces for Michael Axelrod of AG1 Realty.
In the course of developing his own projects and land, Charles started US Best Construction LLC, building communities in the city of Philadelphia, dedicating streets and new infrastructure to the city. It was during this period in his life that he met Steve Goldner, developer of Kingsley Courts a 32 unit carriage home community, a meeting for which Charles was very grateful. Shortly after their introduction, Steve and Charles created a business venture as WG Main St LLC. With this they started their latest project, a development at 3811 Main St in Manayunk, a 78 Unit Luxury Apartment/Condo Building.
Charles’ true passion is to create, develop and appreciate.
