Under Contract! 2 Outside Walkup Apartment Buildings in Central Denver

“Outside walkup” apartment buildings are a popular style of construction in Denver’s multifamily market. There are hundreds of these buildings across the Denver metro area. The outside walkup was built in Central Denver predominantly from 1965-1970 until changes in zoning/building code and the cost of land made it prohibitive to build in the City/County of Denver. After development of outside walkup apartment buildings diminished in Central Denver, developers built the outside walkup building model across the rest of the Denver metro area.

As noted in previous articles, Greg Johnson and Kyle Malnati have mastered the sale of the Central Denver outside walkup. Proof of their multifamily brokerage excellence is displayed in their two most recent contracts for outside walkups:

833 Emerson Street (List Price: $200,000/unit)
– 20-unit Outside Walkup
– Desirable Capitol Hill Location
– 1Br & 2Br Floorplans
– 20 Parking Spaces (1:1 Ratio!)
– New Boiler System (2016)

2035 South Josephine (List Price: $173,750/unit)
– 40-unit Outside Walkup
– Walkable University of Denver Location
– 1Br & 2Br Floorplans
– 20 parking spaces (1:2 Ratio)
– Upgraded Flooring

There were many detractors when Calibrate Real Estate listed both of these apartment buildings for sale. Frankly, there were some people that said we were CRAZY.One local multifamily owner was quoted as saying, “Thank you… but too pricey for me.” However, as crazy as each offering price might have seemed, it is interesting to note that both buildings are under contract with existing Central Denver apartment building ownership groups. Each building is under contract with a different buyer, so this is NOT a portfolio buyer that offered on both properties.

  1. Pricing doesn’t sound crazy at all to me. I’ve stated since 2011 that central denver aptartments would average $200k/unit before this cycle is over.
