LOUISVILLE — A pair of investor groups recently traded the Balfour Senior Living campus in Louisville for a total of $190 million.

The buyer, according to Boulder County public records, was Well Balfour Landlord LLC, an entity affiliated with Welltower Inc. (NYSE:WELL). Welltower is an Ohio-based real estate investment trust that specializes in senior living communities. The seller was an affiliate of Boston investment firm AEW Capital Management LP.

Representatives for Welltower, AEW and Balfour did not respond to requests for comment Wednesday.

The Balfour campus in Louisville was sold in a series of individual and multi-property transactions:

  • Balfour Cherrywood Village, an Alzheimers and memory care facility at 282 McCaslin Blvd., sold for $17.5 million
