California-based development group A.G. Spanos Companies has sold a key piece of property that’s part of the first phase of the mixed-use Echelon City Center development. 

A.G. Spanos sold the 312,936-square-foot Axio at Carillon apartment complex in a $90.85 million deal to the New York-based Sentinel Real Estate Corporation, which owns multiple multifamily developments.

The five-story, 298-unit luxury apartment complex, which was previously known as the Grove Isle at Echelon City Center, opened this year.

The 2.57-acre site also includes a six-level parking garage. The amenities include social lounges with a café, a golf simulator, two courtyards with saltwater pools and a fitness center with a spin and yoga room.

The complex is one of the projects within the Echelon City Center, a 20.5-acre development initially unveiled in 2015. It’s expected to have over a thousand residential units, office space, a 120-key hotel and ground-floor retail space. 

WaterView at Echelon City Center is another project that recently opened in the center. It’s a 15-story building with 226 rental apartments, 13,400 square feet of ground-floor retail and structured parking. 

The buying entity, Sentinel Real Estate Corporation, took out a $50 million mortgage from Regions Bank for the purchase of the Axio apartments.

Sentinel has purchased other developments in the region such as the Preserve VII, a Class-A, 115,000-square-foot office building in Tampa from Highwoods Properties Inc.
