LOVELAND, COLO. — April 11, 2013— Colorado-based developer McWHINNEY plans to begin construction this month on its fifth multifamily project, Arbour Commons, located just north of Denver in Westminster, Colo. An official groundbreaking ceremony will take place in May. The new lifestyle community is the second multifamily project developed by McWHINNEY at The Orchard Town Center master-planned community located off Interstate 25 and 144th Avenue. Arbour Commons will be conveniently located north of Arbour Square Apartments, a successful 300-unit multifamily project developed by McWHINNEY that opened in Fall 2011. Arbour Commons plans to offer 394-units comprised of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes with quality finishes and unique amenities equal to existing McWHINNEY Lifestyle Communities along Colorado’s Front Range.

Arbour Commons marks the fifth multifamily project developed and operated by McWHINNEY in the Rocky Mountain region. “The market has responded well to Arbour Square and as vacancy rates continue to remain low we look forward to responding and delivering on the market’s residential needs,” said Chris LaPlante, McWHINNEY Vice President. “Arbour Commons will be a great addition to the existing Orchard Town Center community.”

Apartment-style homes at Arbour Commons will feature well-designed, energy efficient floor plans with quality finishes. A waiting list will be available at Arbour Commons during construction and pre-leasing is anticipated to begin late summer. The first apartment homes are anticipated for move-in starting January 2014.

“McWHINNEY develops one-of-a-kind lifestyle communities. We are excited to collaborate and partner with McWHINNEY on their next project in Westminster which will nicely complement The Orchard Town Center and its surroundings,” commented Mac Cummins, Planning Manager for Westminster.
