Walker & Dunlop Raises Equity for The Morgan Group and J.P. Morgan Joint Venture

Walker & Dunlop, Inc. announced they have structured a joint venture equity raise for Morgan Arvada, a Class A, 328-unit multifamily community located in Arvada, Colorado. 

The Walker & Dunlop team comprised of Jonathan Paine, Tom Fish, Tom Melody, Mike Melody, and Paul House, acted as exclusive advisor to The Morgan Group of Houston to obtain joint venture equity for the development of Morgan Arvada. After a comprehensive process, institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Global Alternatives were identified to provide the equity capital.  

“The successful execution of this assignment demonstrates the quality and depth of our advisory platform,” said Susan Mello, Executive Vice President and Head of Capital Markets at Walker & Dunlop. 

"Walker & Dunlop has generated great value for us during this process," said David Whitby of The Morgan Group. "Their structured finance team is unique in this industry and their focus and strategic approach allows me to trust that our project is getting exposure to the full capital markets." 
 
Morgan Arvada is located in a highly desirable suburb on the west side of the Denver metropolitan area. The development includes 328 residential units, 561 parking spaces, and 10,200 square feet of retail. The construction of the community commenced in September 2022, with initial residential occupancy projected for Summer 2024, and final completion occurring in Spring 2025.

“This venture represents how like-minded firms can collaborate to drive results that benefit communities for years to come. We are proud to be the trusted advisors to The Morgan Group, an industry-leading multifamily real estate developer, builder, manager, and investor,” said Jonathan Paine. 
 
In 2021, the Walker & Dunlop Capital Markets segment sourced over 1,300 loans and equity investments totaling nearly $30 billion from non-GSE capital providers. This vast experience has made them a top advisor on all asset classes for many of the industry’s top developers, owners, and operators.
