Legacy at Highlands Ranch was 93.1 percent occupied as of October, according to data provider Yardi Matrix. The community had an average rental rate of $1,371 as of November.

“The Denver suburbs have experienced significant demographic tailwinds in recent years, which has benefited property fundamentals and led to market outperformance,” managing director of acquisitions at LaSalle, Summit Walia said in a statement. “While there is a fair amount of supply set to deliver in downtown Denver, very little is underway in the top suburban areas, and we feel confident this high-quality asset is well-positioned for continued strong performance.”

LaSalle Investment Management’s latest transaction included a $47.3 million acquisition of Johns Creek Commons, a 210-unit mixed-use community in Johns Creek, Ga.
