HOUSTON –HFF announced today that it has arranged a $40.5 million participating mezzanine construction loan for the development of The Lodge at Denver West, a 252-unit multi-housing community within the Denver West Business Park in Lakewood, Colorado. 

HFF worked on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between The Greystone Group and The Stevinson Family, to arrange the $40.5 million, or 89 percent of cost, construction/permanent loan through American National Insurance Company.  The seven-year loan has a fixed interest rate of 5.5 percent, interest only during the 24 month construction term, and lender profit participation on a sale or refinance of the loan.

The Lodge at Denver West will be the final multi-housing phase for the Denver West master-planned development.  The 800-acre, mixed-use project includes approximately two million square feet of office space, nearly two million square feet of retail and 575 existing multi-housing units.  Slated for completion in 2015, the Lodge at Denver West will feature a mixture of studio, one- and two-bedroom units.  Community amenities will include a clubhouse with picnic area, business center, media room, fitness center, swimming pool and spa.

The HFF team representing the borrower was led by senior managing director Wally Reid from HFF’s Houston office and director Josh Simon from HFF’s Denver office.
