FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - Bell Partners Inc., one of the nation's leading apartment investment and management companies, has acquired Satori Apartments, a 279-unit apartment community located in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The property, acquired on behalf of the firm's Fund VII investors, will be renamed Bell Sunrise.
Built in 2010, Bell Sunrise is located within two miles of the Atlantic Ocean and offers residents convenient access to work and leisure.

The community is also close to a cluster of local boutiques, restaurants, fine arts, recreation and entertainment options in Downtown Fort Lauderdale and Flagler Village.
"Bell Sunrise deepens our portfolio in the South Florida market, which has been a major beneficiary of the job and population migration trends that have accelerated in the past 12 months," said Nickolay Bochilo, EVP of Investments at Bell Partners. "Favorable housing demand drivers in the area, coupled with an opportunity to enhance the physical features of the community, make this investment an attractive fit for our value-add Fund.
