The JLL Capital Markets Debt Advisory team was led by Senior Managing Directors Charles Halladay, Jordan Angel and Andy Scott, Director Rob Bova and Associate Ethan Habecker.

Despite a higher interest rate environment, best-in-class borrowers, such as Greystar, have many options for financing high-quality housing projects. We are deeply grateful to Greystar for putting their trust in JLL to finance this asset for them and Otera for being a great partner,” said Angel.

Canyon Retreat Apartments

The property consists of two buildings: the first has 8 units, featuring a mix of four studios and four 1 bedroom/1 bath apartments, while the second building features two spacious 1 bedroom/1 bath apartments along with a separate shared laundry space. The seller is a long-standing client of Capstone and has owned this property since 2015. The decision to sell is due to the owner residing out of state.

We contacted the buyers because they have a presence in the submarket. They were chosen because they had strong lending relationships in Colorado Springs, as well as both owning several other multifamily investments in the area. This property had been previously operated as an Airbnb and with their experience, it gave them a leg up on other investors. 

Canyon Retreat Apartments is conveniently located right off Highway 24, situated between Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs. The property offers the convenience of being within walking distance to both the Red Rock Canyon Open Space and Garden of the Gods.
