FCP acquired Haven at Patterson Place from Blue Vista Capital Group in November 2015 for $24.6 million, according to Yardi Matrix. The property was constructed in 2002 on 19.8 acres of land as dedicated student housing attracting students from universities in the surrounding area, such as University of North Carolina at Durham and Duke University School of Nursing. Following the purchase, FCP completed a unit interior renovation program and several improvements to property amenities, including a clubhouse makeover.

StoneBridge plans to invest substantial capital in Haven at Patterson Place’s common areas and units to continue its transition from student-focused apartments to a “market-leading community within its competitive set,” according to the company’s website.

Haven at Patterson Place is near I-40 and NC 15-501, providing residents with access to nearby retail and restaurant amenities, downtown Durham and Raleigh, area universities and the Research Triangle Park. RPT is a 7,000-acre research park that houses hundreds of companies, including science and technology firms, government agencies, academic institutions, startups and nonprofits.

Howard Jenkins and Katie Kuhlhorst with CBRE Carolinas Multi-Family Group represented FCP in the transaction.
