Development partners Brad- bury Properties and Conflu- ent Development sold the three buildings, completed in June, to a separate account investor advised by Invesco. The buildings comprise a 202,000-square-foot build-to- suit for a national distribution center and two speculative buildings, a 160,000-sf and 130,000-sf property. The developers declined to comment on the sales price for the buildings, which signi- fied the build-out of the Doug- las County business park that comprises 1.25 million sf. The sale of the three buildings also represented the completion of a greater, four-building port- folio sale to the buyer totaling 592,000 sf within the business park near the intersection of E-470 and Peoria Street. “Even in these most chal- lenging of times, the indus- trial sector remains one of the most stable and attractive asset classes and serves as the foundation for many essential sectors,” saidMarshall Burton, president and CEO of Con- fluent Development. “We are seeing growing interest and confidence in these projects, demonstrating that industrial development delivers a prom- ising and steady investment opportunity. The demand for industrial space across the U.S. outside city centers continues to surge, and theDenvermetro market is where it’s at now.” CBRE’s Jeremy Ballenger, Jim Bolt, Tyler Carner and Jessica Ostermick brokered the sale and are serving as leasing advisers.
