A Denver-based real estate investment group has raised a $36.4 million private equity fund, its second to date.
Oakwood Real Estate Group, a commercial real estate private equity firm in LoDo, closed the funding round earlier this month. Seventeen investors participated in the offering, according to securities filings.
Peter Cushman, Oakwood’s chief compliance officer, said the fund has a life span of about seven years. He declined to provide details about investment prospects.
In 2013, the firm raised $28 million from 15 investors, Cushman said.
According to its website, Oakwood has invested in more than 65 properties since 2005 through its predecessor, Parkwood Real Estate Partners. Most of those investments include residential, retail and office space, though the site also lists land, senior housing, mixed-use and industrial holdings.
“We invest in all asset classes,” Cushman said.
The firm has invested in property in Colorado, including the Atria Applewood senior living complex in Lakewood. It also has assets in California, Texas, Arizona and several East Coast states.
Going forward, Cushman said the firm will not limit itself to those areas.
“As far as markets go, we focus more on the operator or the sponsor,” he said. “We do a lot all over the U.S.”
