A managing partner for the new ownership group said “ We are thrilled to be part of the Denver community, which we find very appealing due to its vibrant and diversified economy” he added “we have a long-term vision for this asset and will leverage its irreplaceable location by investing in the building to make it a highly desirable and enjoyable home for our residents. We were thrilled to work with Marc Lippitt and Justin Herman of Unique Properties who were incredibly professional and responsive throughout the entire process”

The Sellers said “We knew when it came to Denver and unparalleled excellence, there was only one broker we could trust to represent us on this rare and coveted asset- Marc Lippitt of Unique Properties.
