VANCOUVER, Nov. 29, 2017 /CNW/ - Pure Multi-Family REIT LP ("Pure Multi-Family") (TSXV: RUF.U, RUF.UN; RUF.DB.U; OTCQX: PMULF) announces the successful closing of the previously announced multi-family apartment community Fillmore Apartments (the "Property"), located in Phoenix, Arizona for a purchase price of US$55.95 million. Upon closing, the Property will be rebranded as PURE Fillmore Apartments.
Developed in 2016, the Property is an institutional quality multi-family asset comprising 230 units with an average unit size of 934 square feet. The Property is located on 4.0 acres near Fillmore Street and Seventh Avenue and offers residents a unique value proposition that includes views of downtown Phoenix.
Pure Multi-Family funded the purchase of the Property with cash on hand and debt from a new credit facility (as described below).
Pure Multi-Family announced today that it has entered into an agreement with a Canadian chartered bank for a new secured credit facility (the "Facility") totaling US$50 million with an accordion feature that allows for increased borrowing capacity of up to US$100 million.
The Facility expires in November 2020 and includes a 12-month extension option. Amounts drawn under the Facility will bear interest at a variable rate initially equal to: (i) LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.55% to 2.20% per annum, or (ii) a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.55% to 1.20% per annum.
"We are pleased to implement this credit facility, which along with our recently announced property management internalization, is a major step forward in Pure Multi-Family's growth initiatives," said CEO Steve Evans. "The credit facility will provide us with added financial flexibility and more efficient cash management, which we expect will have a positive impact on our recurring AFFO. We are using this credit facility in the acquisition of PURE Fillmore Apartments as we grow our Phoenix portfolio with the newly constructed property with market leading amenities in a dynamic location that we believe is well positioned for future growth. PURE Fillmore Apartments is a beautiful property with unique luxury amenities in a rapidly changing and highly demanded submarket."
Upon completion of the acquisition of PURE Fillmore Apartments, Pure Multi-Family's portfolio consists of 22 multi-family properties comprising an aggregate of 7,085 residential units, situated on 351 acres of land.
