2035 South Josephine Street

“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 all of Denver’s multifamily rental market has appreciated, the sale prices for outside walkup style apartment buildings has also increased. During the first half of 2017, outside walkups have sold at an average price of $198,621/unit! Five buildings contributed to this statistic, and the details of these five sales are provided below.
