— Blue Devil Ventures is hoping to score another real estate slam dunk in the Bull City.

The developer plans to buy Liggett Group's former cigarette factory in downtown Durham. The company was formed by former Duke basketball stars Christian Laettner and Brian Davis and fellow Duke graduate Tom Niemann.

Blue Devil Ventures was also behind the work at West Village, where two warehouses were turned into apartments, shops, restaurants and offices.
