Mass Equities, Inc. (MEQ), a private equity real estate investment firm based in Santa Monica, California, and AECOM Capital, the investment arm of AECOM (NYSE:ACM), announce a new partnership for the development of MEQ’s prominent 2017 property acquisition in Denver’s emerging River North (RiNo) Art District. The 7.8-acre site will be home to a Class A mixed-use development that reimagines an existing structure in combination with approximately 522,000 square feet of new construction that will both enhance and blend with the future growth of the neighborhood.

“We are pleased that AECOM Capital has joined us on this exciting project, demonstrating the significance of this development and the importance of RiNo in the overall Denver community,” said MEQ Founder Andrew (Drew) Sobel. “We look forward to a collaboration that will benefit from AECOM’s depth of knowledge, experience and global network of experts, to augment and inspire the outstanding MEQ team to accomplish a new kind of mixed-use development that will resonate in tune with RiNo’s dynamism,” he added.

“We are excited to bring a full suite of services to bear on this project, leveraging both AECOM’s established construction expertise and AECOM Capital’s design and development experience,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are firm believers in Denver’s tremendous market potential given the city’s substantial and diverse growth in employment, and its booming millennial population. We look forward to partnering with MEQ to bring its incredible vision to life in RiNo.”
