Amalfi was constructed in 2014 and consists of 395 brand new luxury residential units averaging 811 square feet. Amalfi, a Class AA, institutional quality, apartment community is located in the thriving northern Dallas submarket of Frisco, situated on the doorstep of the world renowned, master-planned Legacy Business Park and proximate to the planned/underway corporate relocations of FedEx Headquarters, Toyota North American Headquarters and Liberty Mutual Headquarters, in addition to the other numerous Fortune 500 companies already based in the Legacy area.

Pure Multi funded the purchase price of Amalfi with proceeds from Pure Multi's bought deal financing which closed on May 8, 2015 and new first mortgage financing, in the amount of US$45,000,000, which bears a fixed interest rate of 3.83% per annum for a term of 12 years. The purchase price represents a stabilized going-in capitalization rate of 5.35%.
Steve Evans, CEO, commented, "Our strategic acquisition of Amalfi further demonstrates the high-grading of our portfolio. Amalfi's brand new construction (2014), Italian inspired luxury architecture and amenities, and location in a neighbourhood that boasts one of the highest concentrations of annual job growth in North America make it a true showpiece in our portfolio and an example of the execution of our growth strategy. We are excited to continue to high-grade our portfolio with future acquisitions and demonstrating the resulting growth at Pure Multi."
