Pursuant to a purchase and sale agreement made and entered into on August 18, 2016, as amended from time to time, Coolray Field Acquisition LLC, an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Fund, purchased Coolray Field unencumbered pursuant to the previously disclosed terms.

Coolray Field consists of one, five-storey building on a 2.51 acre site comprised of studio, one, and two bedroom units. Each apartment unit at Coolray Field contains granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, oversized tubs, upgraded cabinetry, pendant lighting, ceiling fans, wood plank flooring and balconies. Select units also feature dramatic views of Coolray Field. As of October 17, 2016, Coolray Field's occupancy was 92.75%.

Backing directly onto right field of Coolray Field, the stadium that houses the Gwinnett Braves (the "AAA" team of the Atlanta Braves), Coolray Field features undisrupted views of baseball games from the upper level Skybox and lower level Dugout and also from the resort-quality saltwater infinity pool and wet deck. The Skybox features an entertainment kitchen, a pool table, a poker table and a shuffleboard table, and the Dugout contains bar-seating and a business centre. The property also has a state-of-the-art fitness centre, Starbucks coffee lounge, Wi-Fi in common areas, and a spacious courtyard lounge featuring gas grills and a fire wall.

Following completion of the acquisition, the Fund retained Pinnacle Family of Companies ("Pinnacle"), the third largest third-party, multi-family property manager in the United States, as the property manager at Coolray Field. Pinnacle is currently managing six additional communities for the Fund.
