Pure Multi-Family REIT LP Announces US$40 Million Property Acquisition in Dallas, Texas

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 28, 2016) - Pure Multi-Family REIT LP ("Pure Multi-Family") (TSX VENTURE: RUF.U) (TSX VENTURE: RUF.UN) (TSX VENTURE: RUF.DB.U) (OTCQX: PMULF) announced today that it has entered into an agreement to acquire (the "Acquisition") a multi-family apartment community (the "Property"), located in the Allen sub-market of Dallas, Texas, for a purchase price of US$40,000,000.

The Property was constructed in 2002 and consists of 288 residential units averaging 961 square feet.

Pure Multi-Family intends to fund the Acquisition with proceeds from the previously announced profitable sale of Fairways at Prestonwood (a 1991 built asset that sold on November 17, 2016) and new first mortgage financing in the amount of approximately US$16,500,000. The first mortgage financing is expected to bear a fixed interest rate of 3.27% per annum for a term of 5 years. The purchase price for this fully stabilized asset represents a going-in capitalization rate of 5.3%.

Steve Evans, Pure Multi-Family's CEO, stated, "The Property is located in the highly desirable residential area of Allen, Texas, which is in close proximity for two high-profile master-planned employment hubs in Northern Dallas: Legacy West and CityLine. Legacy West is located ten miles west of the property and will be home to Toyota, JPMorgan Chase, Liberty Mutual and FedEx, while CityLine is home to State Farm and Raytheon and is less than eight miles south of the property. Further, the property improves our average portfolio age and provides solid in-place cash flow with potential to execute our asset improvement strategy to increase unitholder value."

The Acquisition is expected to close in late January, 2017.

Upon the completion of this acquisition and the previously announced acquisition of the Lenox Creekside, Pure Multi-Family's portfolio will consist of 17 multi-family properties comprising an aggregate of 5,793 residential units, situated on 310 acres of land.
