SANTA MONICA, CA (December 10, 2018) – Mass Equities, Inc. (MEQ), a private equity real estate investment firm based in Santa Monica, California, and AECOM Capital, the investment arm of AECOM, have announced the appointment of JLL as leasing agent for 2900 Brighton Boulevard in RiNo, Denver’s hip, arts and culture-focused River North Art District.
2900 Brighton is a new, creative development by MEQ and AECOM Capital of a former industrial property that will offer a unique “live-work-play” environment on Brighton Boulevard, contributing to the area’s continuing transformation. Today, RiNo is Colorado’s hottest real estate market.

These new residents are driving RiNo’s economy and defining the fast-evolving character of the neighborhood.
“We are delighted that Jamie Roupp and his team have joined the 2900 Brighton project. As an experienced and distinguished broker, Jamie brings his regional expertise and track record of success to our leasing program for one of the largest and most exciting new developments in RiNo today,” said Brian Bair, MEQ principal and senior VP, Acquisitions & Development for Colorado.
“RiNo is a vibrant market where property values and commercial lease rates have risen consistently over the last 10 years. We anticipate a very successful lease-up for the distinctive office building at 2900 Brighton Boulevard and are looking forward to working with the JLL team,” said AECOM Capital Managing Director Ted Fentin.
“We are excited to join forces with Mass Equities and AECOM Capital to execute the lease up of 2900 Brighton Boulevard. The boutique nature of this building, coupled with the surrounding and onsite amenities that will be developed, provide companies with a competitive advantage to attract and retain talent in Denver’s thriving River North Art District,” said Jamie Roupp, EVP with JLL.
