Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the sale of 1600 Glenarm Place, an iconic, mixed-use high-rise located on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver, Colorado.
The HFF team marketed the asset exclusively on behalf of the seller, a joint venture between RedPeak Properties and Allstate Investments, and procured the buyer, Northland Investment Corporation. The tower was purchased along with a 0.77-acre land parcel for future development located at 14th & Glenarm.
1600 Glenarm Place was originally constructed in 1967 as an office tower known as the Security Life Building and was subsequently converted in 2006 by RedPeak Properties into one of downtown Denver’s first and most prominent residential and retail mixed-use projects. The building comprises 333 luxury apartment units and approximately 29,000 square feet of commercial space, including premium frontage along Denver’s 16th Street pedestrian mall. The 31-story building has a WalkScore® of 96 and is within walking distance of nearly 40 million square feet of office space and two blocks of light rail access. The residential units average approximately 980 square feet in a range of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and penthouse layouts. Resident amenities include an outdoor terrace with barbecue grills and fireplace, state-of-the-art fitness center with Fitness on Demand and a yoga/Pilates studio, demonstration kitchen, cyber lounge, conference room, movie theatre, game room, resident library and reading room, valet parking, 24-hour concierge service and door-to-door room service from Earl’s Restaurant on the property’s ground floor.
The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller included managing director Jordan Robbins and directors Jeff Haag and Anna Stevens.
“1600 Glenarm is a one-of-a-kind, legacy asset within the downtown Denver market and by far one of the most recognizable assets in the area,” Robbins said. “RedPeak was extremely forward-looking in 2006 with its conversion from office space into a mixed-use residential and retail building, which has allowed 1600 Glenarm to maintain its prominent image within the market since its completion.”
“Northland recognized the irreplaceable nature of this asset, which marks their entry into the Denver market," Robbins continued. “This, coupled with their ability to implement an aggressive value-add strategy, will only serve to further the property’s position within downtown.”
