Palisade Partners is a mid-market real estate development firm focusing on developing modern infill projects in Central Denver.  Palisade focuses on central locations, environmental sustainability, community-centered developments, and high-quality design.  Palisade seeks to stand apart from the crowd by looking for projects that provide value and safety of investment; Palisade looks for deals where and when others are not.  With this approach, and through conservative underwriting, we seek to provide capital appreciation for our investors.


Palisade Partners was founded in 2009 by Paul Books.  Mr. Books saw an opportunity to find multifamily real estate investments at attractive prices and utilized a contrarian approach by investing in deals when and where others were not.  Mr. Books began by strategically acquiring and renovating apartment buildings in Central Denver neighborhoods.  In 2011, with prices on existing properties increasing, Palisade Partners began development of infill projects, acquiring land for well under what was paid even a year later.  Palisade has continued to focus on infill projects and has completed several sustainable, community-centered for-rent and for-sale developments with residential, retail, and office components in Central Denver.  Throughout the renovation or development process of its projects, Palisade continually connects with the community to ensure the historical and cultural qualities are preserved and enhanced.  Palisade is equally focused on developing and renovating buildings that are environmentally sustainable.
