Toronto – June 30, 2020 – Starlight Investments (“Starlight”) is pleased to announce the closing of its second fund (the “Fund”) which will focus on multi-family real estate located in major Canadian metropolitan areas which demonstrate strong job and population expansion, rising home ownership costs, a supply versus demand imbalance and strong rental fundamentals including high and stable occupancy and robust rental growth. In connection with closing, the Fund completed its initial acquisition of six properties valued at $200 million. The Fund expects to acquire additional low and mid-rise multi- family buildings which present opportunities for repositioning as well as student centric housing.
“We are extremely pleased to have launched our second co-mingled fund focused on the stable and high performing Canadian multi-family sector. We are proud to continue with a significant number of existing partners from our initial fund and welcome our newest partners from across the globe. We look forward to execute on our strategy with this investment vehicle,” stated Daniel Drimmer, Starlight’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
The Fund further broadens Starlight’s investor base in Canada and globally including Pension Funds, Asset Managers and Family Offices.
