VIENNA, Va., May 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Middleburg Communities (Middleburg), a Vienna, Virginia-based real estate investment, development, construction, and management firm announces the sale of Vesta Derby Oaks, a 418-unit apartment community at 3237 Utah Avenue in Louisville, KY. Middleburg acquired the blighted and mostly abandoned property in December 2018 and invested more than $17 million in the transformative redevelopment of the asset. At the time Middleburg acquired it, the property was approximately 15% occupied with most of the buildings in shell or uninhabitable condition. At the time of sale, Vesta Derby Oaks was 95% leased and occupied.

"The transformation of Vesta Derby Oaks was a game-changer for the community, bringing a formerly desolate property back to life while allowing existing residents to stay and welcoming many more to the restored apartments," said Middleburg Communities Vice President of Asset Management, Michael Bediones. "As new units with very affordable rents were brought online, they were immediately rented. Middleburg wants to recognize the City of Louisville and Jefferson County for providing financing through the Louisville CARES program, which incentivizes the development of affordable housing like Vesta Derby Oaks."

Vesta Derby Oaks underwent an extensive renovation that resulted in a virtually new property, including all new siding, windows, roofs, plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems, new energy star appliances, LED lighting, cabinets, countertops, flooring, fixtures and finishes along with and improved sidewalks and landscaping. The renovation included the creation of a mix of 418 one-, two- and three-bedroom units (instead of the original 100% two-bedroom units) to better respond to the needs of residents.
