Centennial is a 276-unit multifamily residential community that consists of 13 buildings and sits on nine acres. Littleton is an affluent, infill southern suburb of Denver, which benefits from a well-educated workforce and a diverse industry base.

In an effort to improve and enhance these communities, the Company intends to invest additional capital on property improvements, including enhancements to individual units and common areas, exterior painting and landscaping as well as onsite property management upgrades.
