Audubon, an Atlanta-based real estate investment and management firm, announced that it acquired the 180 West Apartment Homes in Carrboro last week.
The release indicated Audubon’s intent to fully renovate the 250 units, and plan to “fully reimagine the property.” This includes the renaming of the apartment complex from 180 West Apartment Homes to Trinity at the Hill.
The plans for renovations, according to the release, include replacing old windows and changing sliding glass doors to French doors, upgrading to granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, remodeling bathrooms and installing new sets of washers and dryers. The clubhouse building will be renovated to include a new mailroom, lounge and fitness center.
This acquisition exemplifies “Audubon’s continued focus on acquiring workforce housing and transforming older properties into communities with outstanding value," the release said.
Rebecca Buzzard, project manager for the Town of Carrboro, said in an email that the Town has fielded several complaints from 180 West residents, and a building inspector has a list of items for the property owner to address.
