Denver—Centerline Capital Group has provided a $33 million loan for the acquisition of Spyglass Hill Apartments, a 573-unit community located in Denver. The transaction was a Fannie Mae market rate loan that will finance the acquisition of the property at a purchase price of $40 million. The borrower is Spyglass 71000 LLC, a newly formed affiliate of BMC Investments.

“BMC is an active investor in the local market with a solid track record for closing very quickly on deals and significantly improving asset quality upon acquisition,” says Suzanne Cope, senior vice president of debt originations at Centerline Capital Group. “Centerline has had great success partnering with this sponsor, having closed several deals together in 2012 and has great confidence in this deal. We were all thrilled to execute this Fannie Large Loan in only 28 days from start to finish.”

According to Centerline, The Denver market continues to improve as is indicated by its low 3.68 percent overall vacancy rate. This rate is forecast to continue to improve as there are currently no plans to increase multifamily inventory in the immediate area. Spyglass Hill Apartments is currently 94 percent occupied.
