JLL arranged a construction loan for the development of The Charles Denver West, a 230-unit community in the Denver, Colorado.

JLL Capital Markets announced that it has arranged a construction loan for the development of The Charles Denver West, a 230-unit, Class A, multihousing community in the Denver community of Golden, Colorado.

JLL represented the developer, The Greystone Group, in arranging a structured debt capital partner with a major international investment bank.

The Charles at Denver West will comprise one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 972 square feet. The apartments will include nine to 10 foot interior ceiling heights in all units, top interior finishes and fixtures, condominium spec acoustical designs, controlled access to all buildings, garages and amenities, large open swimming pool with jacuzzi spa. The community will offer a leasing office, clubhouse, fitness center with dry saunas, swimming pool with spa, barbeque areas, dog park and controlled access.

The site is situated on 7.92-acres backing up to South Table Mountain, just north of Interstate 70 off Denver West Parkway. The Charles Denver West is strategically located at the convergence of four major highways, Interstates 70 and 40, Colorado 470 and US Highway 6. Nestled in the foothills west of Denver, Denver West is a master-planned development offering residents superior access to major employment, retail, transportation and the mountains. Within minutes of the property, residents can access Denver West Village, the Denver West Business, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, several major grocery stores and the Colorado Mills Mall, which includes numerous restaurants, theaters and other recreational activities. Current major employment sectors in the city include federal agencies, technology, medical device manufacturing, renewable energy, financial services, IT/software and more. The immediate west metro Denver region is also home to significant employment in advanced manufacturing and aerospace.

The JLL Capital Markets debt team that represented the developer was led by Senior Director Kristian Lichtenfels.

“Our JLL team was excited to have the opportunity to bring Greystone Group another great capital partner to expand the residential offerings in Denver West,” said Lichtenfels. “Our team has worked with the Greystone Group on multiple projects in the area over the last 12 years. The capital interest was very strong for the Charles, given the Sponsor’s excellent track record and the major supply constraints in this well-located and amenity rich western suburb of Denver. The competitive capital interest in new multifamily development provided the opportunity to script very favorable terms for the Greystone Group.”
