The Doran Group, as the affiliated entity Doran-CSM Centennial LLC, sold Lyra Apartments, the 215-unit property at 9641 E. Geddes Ave. in Centennial. According to public records, the property sold to CSR-Lyra Holding LLC for $95 million, or $441,860 per unit. Jordan Robbins of JLL brokered the transaction. Lyra Apartments offers studio, one-, two- and three- bedroom units ranging from 600 to 1,800 square feet. Com- munity amenities at the prop- erty include a clubroom, busi- ness center, fitness center with a group fitness room, game room with a sports simula- tor, a dog park and spa, an outdoor pool and spa, grilling stations and fire pits. Addi- tionally, the property features fully enclosed, heated park- ing for residents. According to The Doran Group, Lyra Apartments reached 95% sta- bilization within a few months of its opening in April. “This project enjoyed tre- mendous activity out of the gate,” said Kelly Doran, founder of The Doran Group. “We came in on budget from a design-build and manage- ment perspective and sur- passed our already high leas- ing and rent projections for the community with a strong on-site team, desirable com- munity and in-home ame- nities, expert branding and marketing, and competitive rents.” According to Doran, Lyra Apartments hit the market weeks after opening and gar- nered significant interest from buyers attracted to its qual- ity construction and design. The asset’s location proximal to the Denver Tech Center and Interstate 25 also proved desirable, Doran noted. Lyra Newly built apartments sell for $95 million by Jenna Walters CENTENNIAL – A Green- wood Village-based multi- family investment company added a Denver area asset to its growing portfolio. Griffis Residential is the new owner of 360 Degrees, the 304-unit apartment property at 7700 E. Peak- view Ave. in Centennial. The buyer acquired the asset from seller EverWest Real Estate Investors for $115 million, or $378,289 per unit. Dan Woodward, Dave Potarf, Matt Barnett and Jake Young of Walker & Dunlop exclusively bro- kered the transaction. Built in 2014, 360 Degrees offers 31 studios, 211 one- and 62 two-bedroom apart- ments averaging 818 square feet. Community amenities include a year-round resort- style pool, an outdoor fire pit and grilling stations, a rooftop deck and an electric vehicle charging station. According to Potarf, 360 Degrees was originally list- ed for sale late last year but was pulled from the market after several weeks. When the property was recently relisted, it garnered sig- nificant inter- est and quick- ly received a desirable offer from Griffis Residential, Potarf said. Following closing, the property was renamed Griffis at Fiddler’s Green, signal- ing a rebrand by the buyer. When asked about additional planned changes, Potarf said the buyer expressed interest in making some improve- ments, though specifics were undisclosed. Griffis Residen- tial could not be reached for comment on the acquisition or planned renovations. The buyer adds the asset to a portfolio comprising a dozen other Denver area apartment communities. Additionally, it owns several assets in Austin, Texas; the Seattle metro area; the Port- land, Oregon, metro area; and Southern California. s Griffis Residential acquires MF for $115M The 360 Degrees apartment property in Centennial was renamed Griffis at Fiddler’s Green following its recent sale.
