BURLINGTON, ON, Dec. 19th, 2023 – The Equiton Residential Income Fund Trust (The Apartment Fund) proudly announces its strategic expansion in Brantford, Ontario through the acquisition of a multi-residential property at 23 Lynnwood Drive, directly next door to Equiton’s existing property at 19 Lynnwood Drive. These sister properties share a common driveway and will provide many opportunities for synergies.
This purchase, Equiton’s third in the city of Brantford, will enhance the company's presence in the region and solidify its commitment to the local economy. The purchase price for the property was $11.25 million.
The newly acquired building has six storeys, 55 suites, and 74 outdoor parking spaces. The expansion is not only a testament to Equiton's confidence in the Brantford market, but also a strategic move to capitalize on operating efficiencies.
Equiton Founder and CEO Jason Roque, expressed his excitement about the acquisition, stating "We are thrilled to announce this expansion which reflects our dedication to strategic growth, operational excellence, and creating value for all stakeholders. The desirable attributes of the property combined with the robust rental market in Brantford, make it an exceptional addition to our portfolio, and position us for continued success.”
