West Shore has grown its multifamily footprint in Kentucky to five communities after acquiring a 384-unit property in Lexington, Ky. The firm acquired Bridle Creek Apartments for an undisclosed price. The seller was Maxus Realty Trust, who last acquired the community for $30.1 million in December 2005, according to Yardi Matrix data.
Bridle Creek Apartments offers one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 741 to 1,218 square feet. According to Yardi Matrix data, the community was built in 2002. The units were built with walk-in closets, kitchen islands, patios or balconies, and washer and dryers, while the community’s amenities include a pool, fitness center, pet park, clubhouse, coffee bar, business center, outdoor dining areas, outdoor grills, garage parking and storage units. According to Yardi Matrix data, the community is 94 percent occupied.
Located at 3800 Nicholasville Road, Bridle Creek Apartments is located roughly 3 miles south of the University of Kentucky. Residents are also less than a mile away from Lexington’s latest shopping center, the Summit at Fritz Farm with retail tenants including Whole Foods, Apple, and many restaurant options.
