VANCOUVER, June 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Pure Multi-Family REIT LP ("Pure Multi") (TSXV: RUF.U) announced today the successful closing of a multi-family apartment community, commonly referred to as Vistas at Hackberry Creek ("Hackberry Creek"), comprising 560 residential units located in the Las Colinas sub-market of Dallas, Texas, for a purchase price of US$45,400,000.

Hackberry Creek consists of over 435,000 square feet of residential premises located in 54 buildings on a 24.6 acre site.  This high quality property has been institutionally owned and very well maintained, and recently completed an extensive interior and exterior upgrade program.  Hackberry Creek is in an excellent location in the Las Colinas master-planned development, a sub-market of Dallas, Texas, overlooking the prestigious Hackberry Creek Country Club.  It has close access to Las Colinas' three major highway systems and the DART Light Rail Line which opened service in Las Colinas in 2012.

Pure Multi funded the acquisition of Hackberry Creek with equity from the bought deal offering that closed on May 8, 2013 and first mortgage financing in the amount of US$29,500,000, which bears an interest rate of 3.9% per annum for a term of 15 years.  Hackberry Creek was acquired at a going-in capitalization rate of 6.49%.

Stephen Evans, CEO, stated, "We are excited with the completion of this high quality property acquisition in the sought-after Las Colinas sub-market as we continue to increase our stake in the vibrant Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, one of the strongest economies in the U.S. today."
