Bellwether Enterprise Real Estate Capital’s Sara Behrman arranged the transaction.

Located at 4751 Aspire Boulevard, across the street from the Kenwood Towne Centre shopping district, the Aspire Kenwood development opened late last year. It is part of a larger $150 million Gallery at Kenwood mixed-use project from Capital Investment Group that will include a hotel, retail and parking garage.

Property amenities at Aspire Kenwood include garage parking, a heated outdoor swimming pool, a pet spa, a pet park, co-working space, a podcast studio and a golf simulator.
