Vine Place, completed in 1997, is slated by Insight for a moderate re-branding and repositioning. Insight has hired new property management and plans to invest significant capital to upgrade amenities, landscaping, signage and building entrances.
"Vine Place is a solid, well-located community with interstate visibility and access," said Insight principal Michael Blum. "It just needs care and attention."
