DivcoWest, Blackfin Acquire 384-Unit Raleigh MF Community

A partnership between DivcoWest and Blackfin Real Estate Investors has acquired The Proper, a 384-unit residential community located at 403 Wolf Creek Circle in Raleigh. The sales price was not disclosed.

Built as high-end student housing, the partnership plans to invest heavily in The Proper to create a vibrant lifestyle experience that appeals to apartment renters seeking a well-located and amenity-rich place to live in the Raleigh metro. The Proper was completed in 2001 and offers a range of two-, three- and four- bedroom apartments in a highly-amenitized community setting. Amenities include a large outdoor, resort-style pool as well as two fitness centers and a basketball court.

The acquisition is the second joint venture between DivcoWest and Blackfin and adds to Blackfin’s multifamily presence in the North Carolina market. The seller was not disclosed.
