A Canadian investment firm has bought Promenade at Carillon, a 334-unit apartment community in the Carillon Business Park.
Starlight U.S. Multi-Family, an investment vehicle for Starlight Investments, paid $64.1 million for the property, according to a deed filed Jan. 15 in Pinellas County.
The seller, Realty Associates Fund X LP, an affiliate of Boston-based TA Realty, bought the property in 2010 for $34.15 milllion, Pinellas County property records show.
Promenade at Carillon, at 540 Carillon Parkway, was built in 1994.
It is a Class A, garden-style property. The 334 apartments include one, two and three bedroom units, a news release said. Outdoor amenities include a resort-style pool with tanning deck, a jogging trail, dog park, playground and outdoor grilling areas. Indoor amenities include a fully equipped fitness center, a resident lounge and business center.
Apartment transactions and other activity has been on the rise in the Carillon area. In December, Momentum Real Estate Partners LLC, a private equity firm based in Miami, bought Provenza at St. Pete, a 308-unit apartment community at 540 Trinity Lane, for $70.25 million. Construction work began in August on Echelon City Center, a 15-story building with 226 rental apartments, 13,400 square feet of ground floor retail and structured parking. Echelon, a St. Petersburg-based real estate company, is partnering on the project with Tampa investment advisory firm Third Lake Partners LLC.
