BURLINGTON, ON, July 21, 2022 – The Equiton Residential Income Fund Trust (The Apartment Fund) is pleased to announce the acquisition of a multi-family residential property in Brampton, Ontario. The purchase price for the property was $63.25 million.
The building, which will be known as Braemar Place, has 15 stories, 153 units and 198 combined indoor and outdoor parking spots. It is ideally located at 78 Braemar Drive in Brampton across the street from the Bramalea City Centre, one of the largest shopping malls in Canada. This property offers spacious, renovated suites and condo-style amenities including storage lockers, bicycle storage, a playground and an outdoor swimming pool.
Boasting 74 consecutive months of positive returns since its inception, The Apartment Fund now comprises 29 properties in 15 communities across Southern Ontario with a total unit count of 2,117.
