Blue Heron Receives Construction Financing for 164-Unit Multifamily Community in Durham
DURHAM, N.C. — Blue Heron Asset Management has received a construction loan for the development of Foster on the Park, a 164-unit apartment community located at 545 Foster St. in Durham. Roger Edwards, Justin Good and Henry Sisson of HFF arranged the loan through First National Bank, a subsidiary of FNB Corp., on behalf of Blue Heron. Foster on the Park will feature ground-floor retail and restaurant space and will overlook Central Park — the city’s main urban park that hosts a twice-weekly farmers market, food truck rodeos and community and social events. In addition, the community will be located adjacent to Durham Innovation District, a 1.7 million-square-foot, planned mixed-use development, as well as the Historic Durham Athletic Park. In addition to Blue Heron, the project team includes general contractor Resolute Building Co., architect Cline Design Associates and civil engineer Coulter Jewell Thames. Bell Partners will manage the community upon completion in the first quarter of 2020.
