Domain Apartments is a mid-rise multifamily complex that comprises 264-units contained in four, six-story buildings, and a 2,500-square-foot retail unit on the ground floor. 

Improvements to the property, including the construction of a two-story underground garage, were made to the multifamily complex in phases, first between 2005 and 2007 with the original developer, and then between 2009 and 2011 with the current owner and borrower.
