May 16, 2011 (Calgary, AB) - avenue living is pleased to annouce the recent purchase of 5 apartment buildings in both Regina, SK and Brooks, AB, adding a total of 104 apartments across both provinces. This $4.25 million multi-residential portfolio is highly accretive from a valuation standpoint and adds to the strength of our existing holdings in both cities.  Carl Diodati, Chief Investment Officer of avenue living commented that: "This recent addition to our portfolio is a testament to our commitment to our Value Migration Model; which has a clear aim of bringing underperforming and less desirable apartments to much higher standards for the benefit of our stakeholders and above all, to our customers.  Furthermore, it underscores our commitment to the city of Brooks and our belief in its bright future at a time when the consensus opinion is quite the opposite."
