GREENSBORO, N.C. – Bell Partners Inc., one of the nation’s leading apartment investment and management companies, today announced the acquisition of 3040 Apartments, a 243-unit multifamily community located in Redmond, Wash., for $96 million on behalf of its Fund VI investors.

The community is located within walking distance from Microsoft’s global HQ campus and also offers convenient access to the Seattle Transit Link light rail expansion.

We also plan to leverage the Bell platform to enhance resident experience via physical and operational improvements, building upon the great work done by the original developer.”

Bell Overlake offers amenities including a rooftop deck, a fitness center with separate yoga studio, a pet spa, a courtyard with BBQ area and fire pits, and garage parking with electric charging stations.
