Wednesday, February 28, 2018 | Greystar Real Estate Partners

Denver, Colorado – Funds managed by Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC (“Greystar”), a global leader in the investment, development, and management of high-quality rental housing properties, today announced the acquisition of Waterford Place. The asset is well-located at 2801 East 120th Avenue in Thornton, Colorado – a growing submarket of  Northglenn/Thornton within the greater Denver MSA.

“The acquisition of Waterford Place represents a continuation of Greystar’s strategy of acquiring high-quality assets with value-add upside in submarkets like Thornton, poised for growth due to limited new supply. Rent growth in this submarket is one of the strongest in the Denver metro area and home prices have risen over 35% in just the past three years,” said Kevin Kaberna, Executive Director and leader of Greystar’s U.S. Investment platform. “We see tremendous opportunity to reposition the asset through extensive capital and operational enhancements, ultimately delivering a high quality, modern asset that is unique and desirable in this market.”

Greystar’s comprehensive value-add strategy will focus on renovating all 336 units and common areas of the asset. Unit updates will include the addition of stainless steel appliances, extended plank flooring, quartz countertops, and new lighting and hardware packages. Renovations to the common areas will feature enhancements to the pool, clubhouse, fitness center, BBQ area, dog park, and sport/tennis court.

Waterford Place is a 336-unit garden-style apartment community constructed in 1998. It’s location in the attractive Thornton submarket boasts low-density of only 18 units per acre and the development’s park-like setting sets it apart from other communities in the submarket. Thornton has emerged as an area with a unique balance of high-tech industries, well-planned retail, and attractive development driving strong population growth of 12.1% since 2010 and is expected to grow another 12% by 2021. The asset is located four minutes from the future light rail station that will provide direct high-speed rail access to downtown Denver’s Union Station.

As the nation’s largest apartment operator with over 420,000 units under management, Greystar currently owns more than 1,700 units in the Denver Metro Area and manages 23,142 more. Greystar will continue to leverage its local market expertise and deep industry relationships to identify attractive investments and management opportunities throughout the Denver area.
