The sale made Canadian history by commanding $215 million, a record-breaking price of for a single-site apartment, according to The Globe and Mail.
According to a release issued by Minto, the Ottawabased company was chosen from a list of 17 bidders. "The mix of well maintained residential and commercial properties makes this portfolio an excellent addition to our existing assets and strategically supports our initiative to expand beyond the Toronto and Ottawa markets," Minto CEO Roger Greenberg said in the release.
Cherryhill Village was one of the major properties owned by the prominent London developer Esam Group, which was founded by Sam Katz in 1957 and remains a familyowned business.
