Bell Partners Acquires Dallas Area Apartment Community

831-unit property in Plano, TX purchased for Bell Value-Add Fund VIII

GREENSBORO, N.C. – June 24, 2024 – Bell Partners (the “Company”), one of the nation’s largest apartment investment and management companies, today announced it has acquired Gateway Crossing Apartments, an 831-unit apartment community located in Plano, Texas. The community was acquired on behalf of the Company’s Bell Value-Add Fund VIII and will be renamed Bell Gateway Village.

Daniel Baker, vice chairman and the managing director of CBRE’s Central Region, brokered the transaction.

“Bell Gateway Village is an exciting addition to our value-add portfolio,” said Nickolay Bochilo, Chief Investment Officer at Bell Partners. “The opportunity to acquire a low-density, quality apartment community in an evolving location within a strong Dallas-Fort Worth submarket is another example of our ability to pursue and carefully underwrite investments in our target regions where we can leverage our local experience and vertically integrated operating platform to enhance performance.”

Completed in three phases in 2013, 2015 and 2017, Bell Gateway Village is a low-density, garden-style community featuring one, two- and three-bedroom floor plans with an average unit size of 930 square feet. Amenities include three community pools, an oversized fitness center and expansive green space. The property is located close to the U.S. Route 75 and U.S. Route 190 interchange, offering residents easy access to major area employment centers and amenities. CityLine, a 120,000-square-foot mixed-use development anchored by a Whole Foods Market, is located just over two miles from the property.

With this acquisition Bell Partners now owns or manages a portfolio of over 11,400 apartment homes in 34 apartment communities in the Dallas / Fort-Worth region.
