Post-acquisition financing secured for Denver’s Larimer Square

JLL Capital Markets led the financing efforts for the historic collection of 28 office and retail buildings 

August 12, 2021

DENVER, August 12, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged post-acquisition financing for Larimer Square, a historic mixed-use collection of 28 office and retail buildings along Larimer St. and Market St. in Downtown Denver, Colorado.

JLL worked exclusively on behalf of the property owner to secure the financing, which will be used to help the property owner realize its vision for the project through extensive restoration and renovation of these historic buildings.

Originally built in the late 1800’s, Larimer Square is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and comprises approximately 247,856 square feet of creative office and retail space along a full city block. The portfolio also includes the 306-space Market Street parking garage.

Situated in the heart of Denver’s historic lower downtown “LoDo” district, Larimer Square has been a catalyst of vibrant urban activation for more than 150-years. The portfolio of buildings benefits from its core compilation of retail and restaurant tenants along with creative office space above. Larimer Square has helped spur further historic preservation of existing brick and timber buildings as well as the development of new mixed-use projects throughout the LoDo area. An attraction in its own right, Larimer Square is also proximate to the Cherry Creek bike path, University of Colorado Denver campus, Ball Arena and Coors Field.

The JLL Capital Markets team was led by Senior Managing Director Anthony Fertitta and Senior Director Kristian Lichtenfels.
