Centennial, CO (August 2, 2021) - Essex Financial Group (“Essex”) recently secured a $17,155,000 non-recourse bridge loan with a national debt fund for the acquisition of 9110 East Nichols Avenue (“Highland Place II”) by Centre Point Properties. The 3-year, floating rate loan included future funding proceeds to modernize the building, spec out vacant space, and lease up the Property. The interest-only loan also allowed the borrower to use Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing to upgrade the building’s energy efficiency.

Highland Place II is a 3-story, 141,000 square foot multi-tenant office building located in the heart of Southeast Denver’s suburban office market in Centennial, CO. The building features covered executive parking, ample outdoor space, and a continuous glass line that provides tenants with abundant natural light and mountain views. Highland Place II was 56% occupied at the time of the acquisition but displayed strong operating history, having maintained 90%+ occupancy from 2005 through 2018, until a full floor user outgrew its space. Centre Point Properties plans to convert interior atrium office space into a fitness center and conference room facility, add a 2nd interior atrium staircase to access the 2nd floor, and activate the outdoor patio area with new furniture, Wi-Fi, and direct access to a first-floor vacancy. The business plan also includes a substantial spec suite program to generate leasing velocity and attract tenants looking for high-end suburban office space.

Essex’s Capital Markets team was led by President Cooper Williams, Assistant Vice President Paul Donahue, and Real Estate Analyst Nate Schneider.
