Laramie is a city in Albany County, Wyoming with a population of 32,104. Located on the Laramie River in southeastern Wyoming, the city is west of Cheyenne, at the junction of Interstate 80 and U.S. Route 287.

Laramie was settled in the mid-19th century along the Union Pacific Railroad line, which crosses the Laramie River at Laramie. It is home to the University of Wyoming, Wyoming Technical Institute, and a branch of Laramie County Community College. Laramie Regional Airport serves the area. The ruins of Fort Sanders, an army fort predating Laramie, lie just south of the city along Route 287. Located in the Laramie Valley between the Snowy Range and the Laramie Range, the city draws outdoor enthusiasts because of its abundance of outdoor activities including skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, and hiking.

MPC Strategy:
McKee Private Capital continued to expand its geographic footprint, entering Wyoming for the first time in May, 2020, and expanding our LIHTC tax credit portfolio. River Run was packaged with another asset, Capital Greens Apartments, located in Cheyenne, WY and we were able to purchase both assets at favorable terms. We also benefited from historically low interest rates, locking in a 3.27% rate on a 10 year fixed term with Freddie Mac. Year 1 investor dividends are projected at 7.5% annually.

We have retained the services of Syringa Property Management located in Boise, Idaho, a specialist in LIHTC properties, and active in the Wyoming market.
