It features a swimming pool, sand volleyball court, two-story fitness center, stadium seating movie theater, game room, tanning salon, business center and a study room with private study areas. It was constructed in 2004.

The company had not replied to requests for comment as of deadline.

According to its website, principals of Realco Capital Partners have built, managed, operated and invested in 8,500 apartments, 2,000 condominium units and more than 1 million square feet of office and retail space.

Prior to the most recent purchases, Realco Capital Partners was better known locally for its condominium holdings.
