GREENSBORO, N.C. – April 30, 2021 – Bell Partners Inc., one of the nation’s leading apartment investment and management companies, has acquired Century Plantation Pointe, a 260-unit apartment community located in Mooresville, N.C. The property, acquired on behalf of the firm’s Fund VII investors, will be renamed Bell Lake Norman, and will become the 79th property Bell Partners currently owns or manages in its home state of North Carolina.
Built in 2014, Bell Lake Norman is a garden-style apartment community positioned along the I-77 corridor. The community offers residents access to several major employment centers including Uptown Charlotte, Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson.

Major employers close to the community include Lake Norman Medical Center, NGK Ceramics USA, BestCo, Pactiv Corporation, and the corporate headquarters of Lowe’s.
Bell Lake Norman also provides convenient access to lifestyle amenities centered around the highly desirable Lake Norman – the largest lake in North Carolina. Nearby local retailers include Publix, Harris Teeter, Sam’s Club, and dozens of local and national eateries.
“The acquisition of Bell Lake Norman represents a continuation of our strategy to acquire quality properties in growing submarkets of our target markets where we can create additional value by making physical improvements to common areas and apartment interiors.” said Nickolay Bochilo, EVP of Investments at Bell Partners. “The Charlotte region continues to experience significant growth driven by job relocations, lower cost of living and warmer climate, which should support favorable growth in renter demand during our investment period.”
Bell Lake Norman’s community amenities include a coffee shop, saltwater pools with an outdoor kitchen, a community clubhouse with a lounge, a fitness center, a pet washing station, a car care center, an onsite clothing care facility, and 24/7 package access with Amazon HUB Lockers.
