TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2017 /CNW/ - Starlight U.S. Multi-Family (No. 5) Core Fund (TSX.V: STUS.A, STUS.U) (the "Fund") announced today following an initial review of each of its multi-family properties located in the State of Texas, that none of the Fund's properties located in Houston, Dallas, Austin or San Antonio have incurred any material damage as a result of Tropical Storm Harvey to date.

The Fund will continue to monitor its Texas portfolio and expects to provide updates when available. Subject to specified exceptions and deductibles, any flood related damage is expected to be covered under the insurance policies of the Fund and its tenants.
