GF Properties Group, the real estate business arm of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe Growth Fund, is the new owner of The Alcott, the 248- unit property at 2424 Alcott St. The buyer acquired the build- ing from Northwestern Mutu- al. According to public records, the asset traded for $126 mil- lion, representing $508,064 per unit. Jordan Robbins and Pam Koster of JLL brokered the transaction. Completed in 2020, The Alcott offers one- and two-bed- room units ranging from 579 square feet to 1,141 sf. Commu- nity amenities at the property include a heated swimming pool, rooftop clubhouse, and a fitness and business center. According to Robbins, the property’s amenities, unob- structed views of downtown Denver and quality construc- tion contributed to competi- tive interest from a variety of prospective buyers. He said the asset ultimately received five- plus offers before selling. Trevor Nazzaro, GF Proper- ties Group vice president, said The Alcott’s location was a driver in the acquisition. “The Alcott is a trophy asset in a favorable location that helps to diversify our real estate portfolio,” Nazzaro said. “Den- ver has been a top 10 metro area for job and population growth for many years. We expect that growth to continue into the future, which will lead to steady returns for our own- ership.” GF Properties Group will bring on property manager Kairoi Residential to over- see the daily operations at the property. s Denver multifamily sells for $126 million by Jenna Walters DENVER – A Portland, Oregon-based family owned commercial real estate firm recently acquired a Class A office building in the Denver Tech Center. Menashe Properties Inc. is the new owner of Stanford Place III, the 367,445-square- foot office tower at 4582 S. Ulster St. in Denver. The buyer purchased the asset from SteelWave and Angelo Gordon Cos. Public records show the building sold for $50 million. How- ever, Jordan Menashe, CEO of Menashe Properties, said the actual sales price was slightly less due to credits provided by the seller. Stanford Place III offers 22,000-sf floor plates and recently renovated main lobby, common area corri- dors and restrooms. Addi- tionally, the property fea- tures an on-site Starbucks Café and deli, a tenant lounge, fitness center, secure bike storage, a conference facility, and surface and cov- ered parking. At closing, the build- ing was 70% occupied by a mix of long-term tenants. Menashe Properties has since signed one lease agree- ment and is negotiating two other leases for a 6,000-sf space and the entire eighth floor. Menashe Properties has hired Robert Whittelsey and Abby Pattillo of Colliers to handle the leasing. Menashe Properties adds the asset to a portfolio including the eight-build- ing, 556,000-sf Aurora Mar- ketplace office campus on 25 acres at 13005-3055 S. Parker Road and 11050-11100 E. Bethany Drive in Aurora. “We are excited to increase our footprint in (the Denver area) to around 1 million square feet with the addi- tion of Stanford Place III,” said Menashe. “Our team’s ability to move swiftly and close without financing cer- tainly helped move this deal over the finish line. We are well-positioned for contin- ued growth and expansion with new acquisitions in the office, retail or industrial sectors and in existing and new markets.” s Menashe Properties Inc. buys DTC office The Alcott recently sold for $126 million. Menashe Properties Inc. will work to lease up Stanford Place III after acquiring the property earlier this month. Jordan Menashe
