The asset, comprising the two adjacent buildings at 10125 and 10205 Federal Drive, recently sold to an undisclosed private partner- ship for $54.3 million. Cush- man & Wakefield’s Aaron Johnson and Jon Hendrick- son brokered the transac- tion on behalf of the seller, Flywheel Capital. Flywheel acquired the port- folio in September 2018 and executed a significant capital i m p r o v e - ment and reposition- ing program during its ownership that includ- ed replac- ing the roofs and HVAC and infrastructure upgrades. The improvements contrib- uted to the full lease-up of both buildings, the Cushman & Wakefield team noted. Building A at 10125 Federal is a 191,924-sf multitenant office building anchored by Northrop Grumman, one of the largest defense contrac- tors in the world. Building B is a 97,094-sf manufactur- ing and distribution build- ing that is fully leased to ConcealFab Inc., a company that engineers and manufac- tures wireless infrastructure mounting and concealment solutions. The portfolio features a seven-plus-year weighted average lease term, Johnson noted. Flywheel Capital sells flex portfolio for $54M by Jenna Walters DENVER – Texas-based Crescent Real Estate added a downtown Denver hospi- tality property to its national portfolio. Crescent is the new owner of the Kimpton Monaco Den- ver, the 189-key hotel at 1717 Champa St. According to pub- lic records, the investment firm purchased the asset for $50.8 million from IA Lodging Den- ver Champa LLC. The firm declined to name the brokers involved in the transaction. The Kimpton is located in two historic buildings – the Railway Exchange Build- ing, built in 1917, and the Art Moderne Title Building, built in 1928. Kimpton converted the buildings into a full-service hotel in 1998. The property fea- tures 8,200 square feet of meet- ing space and is home to the Panzano restaurant and bar. The hotel’s lobby and guest rooms were renovated in 2019. According to Jason Ander- son, co-chief executive officer of Crescent, the firm plans to continue improvements at the property. “Our planned renovation will further improve the offer- ing for our guests by updat- ing the meeting space and the acclaimed Panzano restaurant and bar. We believe strong- ly in the Denver market and remain convinced it will con- tinue to benefit from strong demographic and economic tailwinds that will position the city as a net-winner moving forward,” said Anderson. In addition to the modest improvements, Crescent will replace the former brand man- ager with operator HEI Hotels and Resorts. The firm adds Kimpton Monaco Denver to a significant portfolio consist- ing of other Denver hospitality assets. “In addition to our own- ership of The Brown Palace and Holiday Inn Express, the Kimpton Monaco adds anoth- er enviable flag to one of our favorite markets. As owners of the Kimpton Brice in Savan- nah, Georgia, we believe in the strength of the Kimpton brand, especially in the Den- ver market with limited IHG inventory.” s Crescent Real Estate acquires Denver hotel The two adjacent buildings at 10125 and 10205 Federal Drive in Colorado Springs sold following recent seller upgrades.
