Latest Project: The Melrose at Midtown
We have returned this vintage apartment complex to the elegance of its best years; and then some.
This very sound structure of 100,000 square feet was built in 1959. It is a local Midtown, Memphis landmark.
Our mid-century modern restoration brought back its sparkling lights, custom tile and marble, and gleaming chrome. The project included a new exterior, a new roof, a complete common area re-design (floors, walls, and lighting), and both HVAC and plumbing re-design. Units received new interior floor plans as well as updated appliances, flooring, countertops, and baths.
Not long after the renovations completed, The Melrose Midtown won several awards:
- On January 17, 2020, the Melrose won the coveted Diamond Achievement Award for Best Mid/High-Rise Apartment Community in Memphis.
- On September 19, 2019, The Melrose also won the 2019 “Memphis Most” prize in for Best Apartment Community in Memphis.
- The Melrose also won a construction industry award for best renovation.
- The Memphis Business Journal and a prestigious panel of architects and construction professionals also named the Melrose a runner-up in its annual “Building Memphis” competition which judges multifamily construction projects in different categories.
Cherry Creek East Office Building, Denver, Colorado
This 70,000 square foot office building, acquired in 2008, had not seen renovations since the 1970s.
When we acquired the building, it was completely empty. We renovated the building, fixed the elevators, remodeled all interior spaces and invested over $1 million to bring the local landmark back to life. We also located and placed high quality tenants, including education providers, technology firms, and medical professionals. Upon completion in 2012, the building was 100% occupied.
Genesee Plaza, Golden, Colorado
A pleasantly solid building from the start, Genesee Plaza was a 1980s vintage commercial office complex that needed minor updates, custom build-outs, and interior re-design.
During the 22 months that we owned the building, improved nearly every system. The building was 45% occupied upon purchase. At project completion, it was 100% occupied.
The Law Building, St. Petersburg, Florida
Our team’s first project was the Law Building in St. Petersburg, Florida. We led the gentrification of a commercial district in North St. Petersburg by converting a former Unites States Post Office building to private commercial use. The build-out included new interior spaces, employee lounge areas, a full kitchen, and a complete upgrade of paints and finishes. Since the conversion, the project has housed a number of successful professional offices.
