Akelius Real Estate Management picked up a 117-unit Gramercy rental building from Benedict Realty Group for nearly $61 million.

Akelius, the U.S. arm of Swedish investment giant Akelius that’s acquired a portfolio of more than 1,000 apartments since its launch in 2015, paid $60.9 million to buy the six-story building at 321 East 22nd Street, according to brokers at HFF who negotiated the deal on behalf of the seller.

The price works out to roughly $1,000 per square foot for the 62,000 rentable square feet, according to HFF broker Jeff Julien, who worked on the deal with colleagues Rob Hinckley and Andrew Scandalios.

That price is “in-line for this vintage,” Julien said.

Representatives for Akelius and Benedict were not immediately available for comment.

Benedict bought the property back 2012 for $31 million.
