Robert Kaplan, senior associate at Marcus & Millichap’s Denver office, represented the seller, Scott’s Plaza LLC, and procured the buyer.

“Completed in August 2015 and fully leased for the current school year, the property provides the amenities, floor plans and style that students seek and that drive pricing and occupancy,” said Kaplan in a prepared statement. “Demand for student housing in Fort Collins is fueled by the needs of approximately 27,000 students, fewer than 6,000 CSU residence hall beds and a university that continues to grow.”
