Newmark Knight Frank Multifamily Brokers $106 Million Sale in Denver’s Tech Hub

Denver, CO (11/26/2018)

10:00 AM

Newmark Knight Frank Multifamily announces the $106 million sale of Terracina, a 386-unit, wrap construction multifamily community located off the Denver-Boulder Turnpike US-36 Corridor.

Vice Chairmen Terrance Hunt and Shane Ozment, along with Executive Managing Director Chris Cowan represented the sellers, Greenwood Village-based Griffis Residential - a multifamily real estate investment company - and Pacific Coast Capital Partners (PCCP). The Connor Group - a Dayton, Ohio based owner and operator of luxury apartment communities - purchased the property. Newmark Knight Frank also brokered the sale of Terracina in 2010.

"Terracina's truly unique location - in the heart of the Silicon Valley of the Rockies and within the fast growing Broomfield Business Park - and construction style - that of a luxurious Italian villa - made it a very desirable asset," said Ozment. "Broomfield has one of the most significant areas of opportunity for office development in metro Denver. This is driven by both Broomfield and Boulder's continued technology work force growth."

Built in 2009, Terracina was constructed with high-end building materials and offers residents amenities and unit styles that are hard to replicate today due to high construction costs. The property has a resort-like feel with spacious apartment homes and a robust amenity suite, including a resort-style pool, outdoor pavilion, expansive 15,000-square foot clubhouse with 40-foot ceilings, 24-hour fitness center with yoga studio and stunning mountain views. Griffis Residential completed light renovations on some units to achieve a significant increase in rent.

The property is minutes from the Interlocken Business Park and a quick commute to both downtown Denver and Boulder, making it proximate to multiple major employment centers. Terracina residents have a number of transit options, including the Flatiron Station, serviced by the RTD line called the "Flatiron Flyer" that connects downtown Denver to Boulder. Located around the corner from the 1.5 million-square-foot FlatIron Crossing Shopping Center, Terracina truly offers residents an unbeatable location.
