NALS Apartment Homes purchased the Overlook at Interquest, a 264-unit apartment community, at a record-setting per-unit figure. The community is first pre-stabilized multifamily asset to sell in recent Colorado Springs history.
The buyer paid $66.5 million, or $251,894 per unit, for the community built in 2018, which was 80 percent occupied at the time of sale. The transaction represents the market’s demand for new product and demonstrates a boost in buyer confidence, according to Kevin McKenna of Newmark Knight Frank Multifamily.
“A recent trend in the Denver multifamily market is the increase in pre-stabilized asset sales. Pre-stabilized sales bring value to the seller/developer by allowing them to more quickly transition capital into new projects,” said McKenna. “The sale of Overlook at Interquest is the first pre-stabilized asset sale in Colorado Springs and it characterizes the continued closing of the economic gap between Colorado Springs and metro Denver.”
McKenna, along with Newmark Knight Frank Multifamily’s Saul Levy, represented the undisclosed seller in the transaction.
