DENVER, May 2, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the sale of Village at Copper Mountain, a collection of boutique properties totaling 101,506 square feet of prime storefronts, restaurants, breweries and office space at the base of Copper Mountain in Summit County, Colorado.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, a subsidiary of Imperium Blue. Big V Property Group acquired the asset.

Village at Copper Mountain comprises 19 buildings that are 97 percent leased to a diverse roster of tenants, including Copper Mountain Mercantile, Adaptive Action Sports, Surefoot, Camp Hale Outfitters, Kelly’s Closet, Real Estate at Copper Mountain, Alpine Bank, Starbucks, McCoy’s Mountain Market, High Rockies Whiskey and Wine Bar, The Alpine Club, Covered Bridge Grill, Vacasa and El Zacatecano.

Spanning 2.24 acres, Village at Copper Mountain is at 189 Ten Mile Circle at the base of Copper Mountain Ski Resort, which since 2017 has invested more than $100 million to expand and enhance the resort and surrounding community.
