Griffis Residential Closes Third Private Real Estate Investment Fund With More Than $250 Million in Capital

Griffis Residential, a Denver-based multifamily investment and management firm, announced today the final closing of its third private real estate investment fund (“Fund III”). Fund III successfully raised over $250m in capital for investment in high-quality apartments by the Fund and affiliates. To date, Fund III has acquired five apartment communities comprising 1,512 units in the Austin and Denver metro areas, and currently has additional assets under contract including its first pending acquisition in the Seattle metro area.

“We are very pleased with the strong support for Fund III from our long-standing investors as well as the significant participation from new investors,” said Ian Griffis, Executive Chairman and co-founder of Griffis Residential. “Acquisitions in Fund III are off to a strong start and our dedicated acquisitions team is working diligently to identify new assets that meet our highly-focused investment strategy.”

Fund III investments are based on a “core plus” investment thesis – investing in high quality apartment communities that will benefit from operational and capital improvements. Target assets are typically of recent vintage, contain 150+ units, and have a total project cost ranging from $30m – $100+m. Acquisitions in Fund III are focused on markets where there are a combination of favorable supply/demand dynamics, attractive demographics, appealing lifestyles, and sound economic fundamentals.
