December 16, 2019

DENVER, December 16, 2019 – JLL announced today it has arranged $43.2 million in structured construction financing for the development of Ten West Greeley Apartments, a 264-unit, Class A, garden-style multi-housing property in Greeley, Colorado.

JLL worked on behalf of the developer, Saunders Commercial Development Company, to secure the approximately $32 million, floating-rate senior loan through a national bank and the $11.2 million preferred equity loan through a specialty financing group.

The Ten West Greeley Apartments project is being developed on a 10.15-acre site at 6600 8th Street within the City Center West master-planned community. The location benefits from being one of the largest cities in northern Colorado and provides access to more than 7,100 employers within a 20-minute drive. Due for completion in 2021, the three-story property will have 64 garages in addition to 408 surface parking spaces. High-quality units will feature open floor plans averaging 882 square feet with modern finishes, including stainless-steel appliances, walk-in closets, plank flooring, full-size washers and dryers, and private balconies. This amenity-rich community will also include a resort-style pool, outdoor fire pit and lounge area, clubhouse, large entertainment area, fitness center, wet bar and dog wash.

The JLL Capital Markets debt placement team representing the developer consisted of Senior Director Leon McBroom and Senior Managing Director Eric Tupler.
