DENVER, March 25, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today it has closed the $15.05 million sale of Gateway Town Center, a 100,298-square-foot regional retail center leased to category-leading retailers in the growing Denver-area community of Aurora, Colorado.
JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, ACF Property Management, Inc. Rubenstein Real Estate Co., LC, who was represented by Dwight Medberry, acquired the asset.
Gateway Town Center’s roster of popular national credit and brand name tenants includes the most-visited Best Buy in Colorado along with Ross Dress for Less, PETCO and a popular wireless network operator. Completed in 2005, the 97.2-percent-leased center also houses Boot Barn, Garibaldi Mexican Restaurant, Zenon Family and Cosmetic Dentistry and boats strong co-tenancy.
Located at 3471-3511 North Salida Court, Gateway Town Center is at the key retail node in a highly visible position adjacent to the intersection of Interstate 70 and Pena Boulevard, the main intersection in northeast Denver which serves travelers heading to Denver International Airport. The center offers light rail access to downtown, the airport and a variety of well-established residential areas via the Gateway Park RDT station. Additionally, the property is in Aurora, one of Denver’s fastest-growing communities, and serves a trade area that includes 208,351 residents within a five-mile radius that is expected to increase 8.6 percent within five years.
The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Managing Director Jason Schmidt.
“Gateway Tower Center appealed to a wide group of buyers because of the strong growth in the area, the brand-named tenants and the deep desire for capital to be in the metropolitan Denver market,” Schmidt said.
