Additionally, the project will include a large rooftop terrace with an infinity edge pool, cabanas, grills, and fire pits. Adjacent is the skyline lounge with a catering kitchen with movable walls that expand to the outdoor terrace. The ground floor is intergraded into Confluence Park with high-end ground floor retail and restaurant space with access to the trails along Cherry Creek and the Platte River. Construction is expected to commence fall 2013, with delivery anticipated in the fall of 2015

HFF arranged the joint venture equity for the development of the project. The HFF team representing the borrower included managing director Rob Rizzi and real estate analyst Colin Oberg out of HFF's New York office as well as directors Josh Simon and Jordan Robbins and senior real estate analyst Jake Young from HFF's Denver office. Newmark Grubb Knight Frank was the land broker for the 50,000-square-foot parcel of land. Newmark Grubb Knight Frank brokers Stephen Roesinger, senior managing director, and Wade Fletcher, associate broker, assisted both parties in the transaction.

"The specific demographics that we are targeting desire a diverse mix of homes of which we have crafted into this development."
