Affiliates of Carroll Organization, a real estate investment and management company, purchased both phases, according to Palm Beach County records.

The company said it made the purchase in a partnership with investment firm BlueMountain Capital Management, and plans to rebrand and manage both phases. Carroll also plans “light” upgrades, with each unit getting updated floors and appliances, according to a press release.

CBRE Capital Markets granted the company two mortgages totaling $84 million for the properties. Both phases of the community were last sold for a combined $101.5 million in 2010.
