ARA, A Newmark Company (ARA Newmark) announces $75.1 million in multihousing transactions in high-demand southeast Denver as Jackson Square Properties (Jackson Square) sells Villas at Parker and buys Arapahoe Club for an undisclosed price.
Vice Chairmen Shane Ozment, Terrance Hunt, Jeff Hawks and Doug Andrews represented San Francisco-based Jackson Square in the disposition of Villas at Parker. Advenir, a Florida company that acquires and operates multihousing communities on behalf of institutional investors, bought the 345-unit property. The ARA Newmark team also represented The Reliant Group, a San Francisco investment group that focuses on affordable and market-rate multihousing, in the sale of Arapahoe Club. With that 185-unit buy, Jackson Square owns almost 3,000 units in metro Denver. The private real estate investment company specializes in multihousing communities.
Ozment said, “The seller of Arapahoe Club had invested significant capital in the infrastructure, common areas and only a few unit renovations, but had achieved a 46 percent return on the upgraded units. Jackson Square plans to continue with this proven value-add strategy.” Built in 1994 at 2800 South Syracuse Way, Arapahoe Club is a Class B property near the Denver Technological Corridor, the area’s largest employment hub with over 423,000 workers. The asset is minutes from Yale Station on the Southeast Light Rail Line, which will connect to rail service to the airport later this year.
The 345-unit Villas at Parker drew multiple bidders due to 98 percent occupancy and tremendous rent growth. At collection, rental income had grown 12.3 percent year-over-year. Built in 1972 at 1090 South Parker Road, Villas at Parker took on extensive renovations in 2008 and 2009. “With high demand for units in the area with quality finishes, the buyer plans to take a 70s product at a lower price per unit and further invest to attract residents while staying well below replacement cost or the cost to acquire newer product,” noted Hawks. Both properties are located in the highly-regarded Cherry Creek School District and near the burgeoning Glendale, Lowry and Buckley areas.
