A Page Turns on Welton Street

  
  
  

By: Jamie Siebrase, Confluence Denver

As plans to revitalize the Five Points neighborhood are revisited thanks to $475,000 in grants recently doled out by Denver's Office of Economic Development via the Welton Street Challenge, the real challenge unfolds. Local developers are striving to balance heritage with redevelopment on the Welton Street Corridor, Colorado's only historic cultural district.
If you're willing to sit down and listen, Charleszine Terry Nelson, Special Collection and Community Resource Manager for the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library, will weave you a tale of a time when Welton Street was the hippest strip between St. Louis and San Francisco. 

We look back -- after all, as Nelson says, "You have to build on the past to go forward to the future!" -- for insight into Five Points, the nationally recognized place that roughly 18,000 Denver residents call home.

Apartment rents rise

  
  
  

Inside Real Estate News 

Rising Denver metro-area rents are being moderated by discounts and concessions to renters, according to a report released today.

Rent discounts and concessions averaged 9.3 percent in the second quarter up from 6.9 percent for the first quarter, according to the Denver Metro Apartment Vacancy Rent Survey released by the Apartment Association of Metro Denver and the University of Denver.

“Concessions are typically higher in the summer months and with the new product coming on-line that contributes to increased concessions because new properties are seeking to attract residents,“ said Mark Williams, executive vice president of the Apartment Association of Metro Denver.

By: The Associated Press, The Denver Post 

DETROIT — Rising sales helped boost hiring and wages at U.S. businesses in the second quarter, and companies are optimistic that the trends will continue this fall, according to a new survey by the National Association for Business Economics.

Fifty-seven percent of the 85 respondents to the survey said sales at their companies rose in the April-June period. That was up from 53 percent in the first quarter and 35 percent in the same period a year ago. Just 5 percent of firms said sales fell during the second quarter.

As sales picked up, so did hiring. Thirty-six percent of firms said they hired more workers during the second quarter, up from 28 percent in the first quarter.

High Prices Pushing Hotel Investors Into Select Service, Second-Tier Markets

  
  
  

By: Randyl Drummer, Costar 

With hospitality property operating metrics strong and getting stronger and capital chasing a limited number of available properties, the lack of high-quality assets on the market is pushing investors into the select service and extended stay segments, second- and even third-tier markets and other alternative asset classes.

The heated competition among buyers may even be contributing to a new round of consolidation in the lodging REIT sector, according to Fitch Ratings, citing the recent $1.95 billion acquisition by American Realty Capital Hospitality Trust of the former Equity Inns portfolio. At minimum, the transaction further reveals the extensive investment capital available for hotel acquisitions.

REITs that own select service hotel properties could be possible acquisition targets, Fitch notes.
