Denver West Office Park
More Info

Denver-West, LLC acquired a two building office complex located in the prestigious Denver West Business Park. The buildings are comprised of ±151,119 SF of Class A office space. The purchase price of $11,475,000 was less than 38% of its replacement cost value of $30,000,000. The property has been 100% leased to two tenants, and was purchased at an 18.3% cap on the existing in-place Net Operating Income of ±$2,100,000. This is an institutional grade asset that was acquired at fantastic opportunistic-level pricing. Though investors may be able to acquire assets for 70% or less of replacement cost, rarely can they acquire a 100% leased asset that produces strong NOI at 38% of replacement cost in a market with sub 3% vacancy.  One of these buildings is occupied by the Boston Market’s Headquarters.  The other buildings is occupied by Safe Co and Liberty Mutual Insurance.
