Gardner Capital, a private equity firm specializing in multifamily housing and renewable energy development and investment, announced today that it has secured funding from the GCRE Impact Fund to encourage electric vehicle (EV) adoption for residents at Alameda View Apartments. The affordable housing community is located near Denver, Colorado.
Soft funding from the GCRE Impact Fund will pay for the installation of EV charging stations at the affordable, multifamily development. Tenants will have access to EV charging directly on property and will enjoy discounted rates.
“Gardner Capital will be providing Alameda View Apartment residents with convenient access to EV charging stations at extremely low prices,” said Michael Gardner, Founder of the GCRE Impact Fund and CEO of Gardner Capital. “Promoting EV adoption, while delivering real savings to our tenants, was the impetus of why we created the GCRE Impact Fund. Our firm will continue to develop projects that deliver material economic value for our tenants.”
Located at 15501 E. Alameda Pkwy, in Aurora, Colorado, Alameda View Apartments has a total of 116 units of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes. Amenities include a resort-style swimming pool, fully appointed clubhouse with a fitness center and club room.
Gardner Capital developed the Alameda View Apartments in partnership with the City of Aurora, as well as multiple financial and other partners, including Citibank.
