“Solaire Apartments was an attractive purchase due to its unique energy-efficient capabilities and prime location within the rapidly growing northeast Denver submarket, which has a population that is projected to increase by 20,000 over the next five years,” Tice said in a statement. “Northeast Denver has experienced an approximate 41 percent growth in employment since 2009, and has several large projects underway with well-known employers like Amazon, Panasonic and Wal-Mart.”

Each unit of the property features nine-foot ceilings, a Roman tub, a full-size washer and dryer, exterior storage and a private balcony or patio. Solaire Apartments also offers amenities such as a heated swimming pool, a hot tub, a fitness center, a business center, a clubhouse and a playground.
