The Davis Cos. and the Copley Group partnered on the acquisition of the 55-unit, market-rate apartment complex. Boston Realty Advisors CEO Jason Weissman, as well as Nicholas Herz, Kevin Benzinger and Andrew Herald, brokered the sale, the acquisition team announced Thursday.

Split between two buildings at 77-81 Park Drive, the Park Gallery is fully occupied and is made up of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments.

The complex is a half-mile from the Longwood Medical Area and close to Berklee College of Music, the New England Conservatory of Music, Northeastern University and Wentworth Institute of Technology.
