Oberndorf Real Estate Management Affiliate and The Bascom Group Acquire 360-Unit CO Multifamily Community


An affiliate of Oberndorf Real Estate Management LP and The Bascom Group LLC have acquired Hearthstone at City Center, a 360-unit multifamily community in Aurora, CO, for $74 mil ($205.5k/unit). The asset is located at 932 South Helena Way.

Constructed in 1984 as a low-density community comprised of 41 buildings across 18.25 acres, Hearthstone features ample onsite outdoor space and a diverse mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. The community is conveniently located southeast of Aurora City Center, a midway point between Downtown Denver and Denver International Airport, just minutes from the I-225 highway, the Aurora Metro Center Station RTD Line, and a 20-minute drive to Downtown Denver.

Residents at Hearthstone can access hundreds of thousands of employment opportunities within a 20-minute commute from the property. Nearby employment hubs include Fitzsimons Medical Campus, Buckley Space Force Base, Denver International Airport, Denver CBD, Denver Tech Center and Cherry Creek. Hearthstone’s location offers superb access to key quality of life attractions and recreation given a diverse selection of shopping, dining and retail in the vicinity, and outdoor activities in Aurora’s many parks, in-town trails and reservoirs, including the scenic 4,000-acre Cherry Creek State Park, and outdoor art and golf courses, all within the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.

The community has been well-maintained over numerous renovation programs throughout the years and offers select units with contemporary appliances, in-home washers and dryers, hardwood-style flooring, walk-in closets, fireplaces and private patios and balconies. The highly amenitized property has a resort-style pool, outdoor grilling and picnic areas, fitness center and sauna, pet park, playground, basketball court and on-site laundry.

Renters enjoy a 50% discount relative to the costs of home ownership in the immediate area. The partnership believes it is acquiring this property at an attractive basis and yield resulting from the highly volatile economic environment over the last twenty-four months. Peter Oberndorf, Managing Director at Oberndorf Real Estate Management, said, “While there is some softness in rents due to elevated supply deliveries, the partnership is positive on the long-term trajectory of the Aurora submarket and greater Denver MSA as new supply becomes harder to build given the higher interest rate environment and recent development restrictions, which will stagnate supply for the foreseeable future.”

The buyer’s business plan includes an extensive value-add renovation program that includes upgraded appliances, countertops and lighting; additional in-unit washers and dryers; added kitchen backsplashes; new cabinets and fixtures; and wood plank flooring. Common area improvements are planned for the fitness center, leasing center and pool, as well as a completely redesigned multipurpose activity area, façade enhancements and revamped landscaping.
