Real Estate Development

Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP helps clients with the development, construction, acquisition, and disposition of office, industrial, health-care, resort, and retail facilities and single-family, condominium, apartment, and assisted-living residential projects, including the negotiation and development of build-to-suit projects. We represent developers and property owners in a broad range of financing transactions, from acquisition, construction, bridge, and permanent loans to sophisticated financing vehicles, such as synthetic lease transactions, sale-leasebacks, and development bonds. We also have broad experience with the development of environmentally troubled land and 1031 exchanges. Our real estate lawyers also assist clients in the planning and structuring of various vehicles for investing in and developing real estate, such as partnerships, joint ventures, corporations, limited liability companies, public syndications, and telecommunications companies in the leasing and licensing of space for providing data and voice service. We also prepare restrictive covenants, land use agreements, and easements for all types of residential, commercial, industrial, and open-space projects and properties.

Notable matters handled by our real estate attorneys include the acquisition and development of a large corporate campus along the Denver-Boulder corridor, the acquisition, development, and financing of several power plant projects along the Colorado I-25 corridor, and the acquisition, development, and disposition of numerous mixed use hotel communities nationwide. We have also advised clients on numerous synthetic leasing and sale leaseback transactions, including synthetic leases for site development. We have represented a restaurant franchiser financing secured by the franchiser-owned restaurant locations and the acquisition, development, financing (including municipal bond financing), and disposition of all types of residential communities. Our real estate lawyers have handled the sale of the downtown Denver property for the Pepsi Center, the sale and acquisition of two major Denver residential home builders, and the development of a number of suburban office buildings and corporate headquarter facilities in the region.

Our leasing practice includes the representation of landlords and tenants in lease transactions in metro Denver and throughout the U.S. involving hundreds of thousands of square feet of office, industrial, and retail space. We have also handled build-to-suit and franchising transactions for retail, warehouse, and distribution space in the U.S. and Canada.
