DENVER, April 1, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $18.85 million in financing for the development of Bloom at Cherry Creek, a 111-unit, Class A mid-rise apartment property currently under construction in Denver’s Cherry Creek submarket.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Botnick Realty, to secure the five-year, fixed-rate construction loan through a regional bank.

Bloom at Cherry Creek is being constructed on a 1.11-acre site at 4700 E. Kentucky Avenue, which provides immediate access to recreation amenities, including the Cherry Creek Bike Path and Infinity Park, as well as nearby access to the Cherry Creek North shopping district. Due for completion in mid-2021, the five-story, podium-style property will total 70,733 rentable square feet across a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units finished with white Shaker cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, luxury flooring and in-unit washers and dryers. Community amenities will include a rooftop deck with firepit, grilling station, community kitchen, game room, fitness center and workstations.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower included Senior Directors Kristian Lichtenfels and Matt Steffen.
