Griffin Capital Company, LLC (“Griffin Capital”), a leading private real estate investment manager, together with their joint venture partner Legacy Partners (“Legacy”), a privately held national real estate developer, has announced the groundbreaking of a 380-unit multifamily development located in Aurora, CO. The development will be part of a 60-acre master-plan community featuring office, retail, and multifamily centered around a renovated light rail station that connects the neighborhood to key destinations throughout Denver MSA. The community will have direct rail and highway access to Fitzsimons Medical Center, Denver’s largest medical district, which includes University of Colorado-affiliated hospitals and research centers as well as one of the nation’s largest VA hospitals.

“This community will be uniquely positioned to take advantage of Aurora’s strong job and population growth driven by its expanding medical sector. It will provide attractive, affordable rental housing to meet the area’s growing demand and create additional economic stimulus for the community. This is our third development with Legacy across our opportunity zone funds and our second with their team in the Aurora market. They have been a terrific partner and we are excited to continue to invest in this community alongside them” commented Eric Kaplan, President of Griffin Capital.
