According to Yardi Matrix data, the acquisition of Arbour Commons was financed through a $74.6 million Freddie Mac loan originated by Arbor Realty Trust, one of the fastest-growing multifamily mortgage banking and brokerage firms of this year.

Built in 2014, the garden-style community encompasses 19 buildings with studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging between 552 and 1,252 square feet, the same data provider shows. Common-area amenities consist of a clubhouse, spa, playground, volleyball court, fitness center and swimming pool. Arbour Commons also has enclosed and detached garages, outside storage, as well as patios or balconies in select units.

Situated at 663 W. 148th Ave., the community is near interstate 25 and Northwest Parkway, which provide direct access to major employment centers such as Denver International Airport or downtown Denver. The Class A property is surrounded by many dining options, retail spaces and entertainment venues. Large green areas and sports fields, such as Carolyn Holmberg Preserve at Rock Creek, are nearby. St. Anthony North Hospital is only 1 mile away from the community.
