Glenbrook at Oxmoor Valley is a $50 million, 300-unit mixed-income residential development on a 26-acre parcel off Sydney Drive and Lakeshore Parkway in the Oxmoor neighborhood.

The project was developed by a partnership of Formation Methods LLC and Pennrose Properties of Pennsylvania. The community was first planned for the area of Fountain Heights near the Civil Rights District, but land acquisition proved too costly. The construction of 25 single family homes in Fountain Heights, however, is still planned as part of the overall project.

Phase I of 100 units was financed in part by a $7.4 million loan from the Housing Authority of the Birmingham District, funded in turn by part of a $20 million HOPE VI grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. Wallace, Roberts & Todd of Philadelphia provided the architectural design and Capstone Building was general contractor. Construction on the first phase began in June 2008 and was completed in 12 months.
