Griffis North Metro Apartment Community Sold

Griffis Residential sells Griffis North Metro Apartments Denver, CO

Griffis Residential, a Denver-based multifamily investment and management firm, announced today that it has sold Griffis North Metro, a 562-unit, Class-A apartment community located in Northglenn, CO. Under Griffis Residential ownership and management from June 2013 to August 11, 2017, the value of Griffis North Metro appreciated 54.5%. The Griffis North Metro sale comes on the heels of the disposition of Denver-based Gateway Park Apartments in late July. The total transaction value of both assets was approximately $200m.

“While we have enjoyed a good market during the hold period, nearly 20% of the value appreciation at Griffis North Metro was directly attributable to our value-creation initiatives,” said Co-CEO David Birnbaum. “Adding value in all market conditions is central to our investment strategy.”

Griffis Residential is actively acquiring multifamily assets in target markets including Denver, Seattle, Austin, Portland, Los Angeles, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area. In the trailing 12 months, Griffis Residential has acquired four apartment communities in Denver, Seattle, and Austin, with a combined value of nearly $380m.
