Starlight Investments announced that it has acquired four landmark concrete Vancouver apartment buildings comprised of 456 units. The acquisition of the trophy assets complements Starlight’s existing Victoria and Vancouver portfolio, which is now comprised of approximately 1,700 units in 18 concrete high-rise towers and mid-rise multi-residential buildings.
“Starlight has once again demonstrated its ability to execute its strategic plan through the recent acquisition of four highly desirable multi-residential high-rise concrete towers in Vancouver’s city centre,” said Daniel Drimmer, Starlight Investments President and Chief Executive Officer. “In the Canadian market place, an urban multi-residential real estate transaction of this magnitude and involving irreplaceable Vancouver real estate is rare. The acquisitions significantly increase our multi-residential portfolio in Vancouver and allows Starlight to recognize significant synergies created by the growing scale of our West Coast portfolio.”
