CAPREIT Acquires Brand New Luxury Apartment Property in B.C.

GlobeNewswire - Mon Apr 15, 4:28PM CDT

Canadian Apartment Properties Real Estate Investment Trust ("CAPREIT") (TSX:CAR-UN.TO) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Willoughby Walk, a brand new, purpose-built apartment building containing 191 rental suites located in Langley, British Columbia. CAPREIT paid $69.6 million for the property, funded by its Acquisition and Operating credit facility, which will subsequently be partially repaid by the CMHC-insured mortgages. Construction was recently completed, and the property is currently being leased up.

Willoughby Walk, located in one of the Province's fastest growing urban markets, is situated close to shopping centres, coffee shops, restaurants, schools and a community park. It is also close to transit and highways with easy access to Greater Vancouver. The 191 suites offer best-in-class amenities, efficient floor plans with modern condominium-style finishes, as well as numerous energy-saving initiatives. It includes underground parking for residents, multiple electric vehicle charging stations, a fitness centre and play area for families, as well as two rooftop patios. The property is also located close to other CAPREIT-owned properties in Langley, driving further economies of scale and cost efficiencies in the market.

"This acquisition is another example of how we are modernizing our property portfolio by acquiring newer properties in strong markets," commented Mark Kenney, President and CEO. "We will continue to re-position our portfolio over time to provide our residents with the best experience while capitalizing on the accompanying reduction in our overall capital expenditures."


As one of Canada's largest residential landlords, CAPREIT is a growth-oriented investment trust owning interests in 53,334 residential units, comprising 45,637 residential suites and 45 manufactured home communities comprising 7,697 land lease sites located in and near major urban centres across Canada.
