Mountain Vista is a 257-unit multifamily rental property located in the Denver MSA of Lakewood, CO.
Located within a twenty minutes’ drive of downtown Denver, the apartment community features an array of amenities including a resident clubhouse, business center, fitness center, two outdoor swimming pools, picnic areas with barbeque grills, dog park, abundant parking, and laundry rooms in each of its seven buildings. Individual units are outfitted with private entrances, gas heating, air conditioning, all electric kitchens, dining room ceiling fans, and free Wi-Fi. The complex consists of 201 one-bedroom, 55 two-bedroom and one three-bedroom units.
The multifamily property offers excellent access to mountain ski areas and is situated only blocks from the RTD Federal Center Light Rail Station (one of the hubs in a comprehensive transit system providing residents traffic-free access to the Jefferson County Government Center), The Belmar Redevelopment, downtown Denver, and the Southeast Business Corridor. RTD Fast Tracks continues to expand its light rail, commuter rail and bus systems to serve the more than 3 million people in the Metro Denver area.
Mountain Vista is less than five minutes from the bustling business corridor of Union Boulevard, adjacent to 6th Avenue in Lakewood. Located within a mile of the property and home to over 2.3 million square feet of office space, the Union Boulevard Corridor offers employment to over 16,900 people with notable tenants in the banking, energy, housing, title, investment, security services and restaurant industries among others. The community’s residents have easy access via the RTD West Rail Line to the Denver Federal Center, another major employment pool of some 13,000 people with the largest concentration of Federal agencies outside of Washington, D.C. Over 60 percent of employment in all of Colorado is located within the seven-county metro region.
Less than 10 minutes from Lakewood is Belmar, an award-winning urban redevelopment and one of the most renowned mixed-use districts in the country. The 104-acre site offers a downtown experience in a country setting, including major entertainment, noted big box retailers, Class A office space and hotels, and 10 acres of open space and parks. Belmar’s central plaza doubles as a venue for summer concerts and events and as an ice skating rink in winter.
The apartment community is also in proximity to major shopping malls with name manufacturers and retail outlets, popular restaurants, a world-renowned brewery, numerous bike and hiking trails, rafting and kayaking, and the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the city of Golden. Golden is also home to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the United States’ primary laboratory for renewable energy with international staff, and The Colorado School of Mines, a public research university dedicated to engineering and applied science with curriculum and research geared towards responsible stewardship of the earth and its resources.
