Durham, Charlotte, N.C.Monument Real Estate Services (MRES), a Miami-based company, recently announced that it has been retained to manage two apartment communities in the Tar Heel State: Haven at Research Triangle Park, a 369-unit community in Durham; and 1700 Place, a 214-unit community in Charlotte. Upgrades will be implemented by the properties’ new administration team. With these additions, MRES’ management portfolio surpasses 2,100 units in North Carolina.

Located at 3001 New Haven Drive, on 28 acres in Durham, Haven at Research Triangle Park encompasses 41 two- and three-story buildings. Formerly known as Arium at Research Triangle Park, the garden-style community offers one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences and townhomes. Common area amenities include a resort-style pool, fitness center, playground, coffee bar, clubhouse, business center, conference room and 750 parking spaces. According to Yardi Matrix data, the property was last sold to White Eagle Property Group in May 2016 for $43 million.

The property offers a convenient commute for residents to the area’s largest employment centers. Residents will also soon benefit from the Monroe Road Streetscape Project currently underway, which will create a pedestrian-oriented and mixed-use corridor complete with bike lanes. Completed in 1986, the property has one- and two-bedroom units spread into 11 two- and three-story buildings. Community amenities include a clubhouse with fitness center, pool and sundeck, tennis court and 335 parking spaces.
