by Camren Skelton

DURHAM, N.C. — Audubon Communities has acquired Oak Creek Village, a 500-unit apartment community located at the intersection of Durham-Chapel Hill Boulevard and Garrett Road in Durham. The name of the seller and the sales price were not disclosed. Audubon will invest $4.6 million in capital improvements for the property — originally constructed in 1972 — and rename the community The Garrett. Planned improvements include replacement of the existing leasing office with a new facility that will include a new fitness center and residential lounge, roof replacement, landscape improvements and updates to the pool, playground and other outdoor amenities. Legacy Capital Partners is Audubon’s equity partner on the transaction. Audubon financed the deal with an acquisition and construction loan from PGIM Real Estate Finance. The deal marks Atlanta-based Audubon’s first investment in the North Carolina market and the company’s third deal with Legacy Capital Partners.
