Location is Key for Forum Fitzsimons

Located at 13650 E. Colfax Ave. in Aurora, CO, Forum Fitzsimons is located within a recently completed residential mixed-use community near the area’s most prominent economic drivers. The 397-unit multifamily property recently sold to Avanti Residential for an undisclosed purchase price.

Forum Fitzsimons was completed in 2018 and features four-story wrap construction. The property totals 317,961 rentable residential square feet and offers studio, one- and two-bedroom floorplan options. Units feature granite countertops, 10- and 12-foot ceilings, custom cabinetry, vinyl flooring and contemporary appliances. Community amenities include two swimming pools, fitness center and outdoor courtyards with fireplaces. The property also has 28,226 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a business center.

The property is located across from the 18.5-million-square-foot Anschutz Medical Campus, near the Fitzsimons Life Science District, Denver International Airport and the Buckley Air Force Base, some 10 miles from downtown Denver. Moreover, Forum Fitzsimons is just one block from the Colfax Light Rail Station, granting access to downtown, the Denver Tech Center and the airport.

JLL represented the seller, a partnership between Sightway Capital, Catalina Development and Pollin Group, to complete the sale. JLL also worked on behalf of Avanti Residential to secure the acquisition financing through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by JLL Real Estate Capital LLC. The JLL seller’s team was led by Joshua Simon, Jordan Robbins, Pamela Koster, Chris McColpin and Matt Steffen who also handled financing.
