ALIGNVEST STUDENT HOUSING ACQUIRES HIGH-QUALITY STUDENT HOUSING ASSET IN HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA
We are pleased to announce that Alignvest Student Housing Real Estate Investment Trust (“ASH REIT”) has completed the acquisition of a purpose-built student accommodation (“PBSA”) asset known as See-More, located at 1402-1424 Seymour Street in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
See-More is a six-floor, newly constructed student housing facility located steps away from Dalhousie University. See-More is one of only a few purpose-built student housing properties serving Dalhousie University and is 100% leased for the 2022/23 academic year.
See-More is equipped with 491 beds in 141 fully furnished units, including studios, three-, four- and five-bedroom suites, which provides a wide variety of configurations for potential tenants. Additionally, See-More features several student-oriented amenities, including a yoga and wellness studio, games room, on-site laundry facilities, social rooms, common study areas and an underground parking garage.
This strategic acquisition further diversifies ASH REIT’s portfolio and solidifies the REIT’s position as the leading owner and operator of Canadian PBSA. With this acquisition, ASH REIT owns in excess of 5,200 student housing beds across Canada. Further, this acquisition marks ASH REIT’s entry into Atlantic Canada, which is home to several universities and colleges in need of housing for their students. We look forward to further growth in the Maritimes.
