Aurora, CO – Inland Real Estate Acquisitions, a Chicago based investment firm, has acquired Conifer Creek, a 480 unit garden-style community from the San Diego based ColRich Group. The sale closed on June 21st, 2017 for $95 million.

David Martin and Pamela Koster, Mountain States Regional Partners of Moran & Company, represented the seller in the transaction.

According to Steve Butler, Vice President of ColRich, “the record per-unit sales price reflects the property’s excellent physical condition, recent clubhouse expansion and renovation, and the convenient attached garage parking.”

Conifer Creek is a well-designed garden-style apartment community built in 1987, with five floorplans ranging from 668 to 1,192 square feet. The property consists of 53 rental buildings across an expansive 19 acres. Situated at 2205 S. Racine Way in the Aurora Southwest submarket, the location boasts convenient access to a diverse employment base along the I-225 corridor, is within a mile of the new Illiff Light Rail Station, and is situated in the highly desirable Cherry Creek school district.

Moran & Company’s David Martin added: “Given the property’s desirable location within the Cherry Creek school district, it is very well positioned for future rent growth and value creation. The property can easily be positioned to generate additional cash flow as a unique value-add investment opportunity.”
