Alitis committed $4,200,000 from the Alitis Income and Growth Pool, Alitis Private REIT and Alitis Private Real Estate LP to the project as a private equity investment. Alitis’ initial investment was made on September 16, 2021. The date of occupancy for the first building was June 30, 2023 quickly followed with occupancy of the second building on August 15, 2023.
“A diversified portfolio is an important part of creating an effective investment strategy and part of our approach involves allocations to private real estate and new multi-family apartment buildings.”
In order to maximize risk-adjusted returns through various real estate market cycles, Alitis specifically uses three strategies (income producing, renovation and development) that contribute to solid income and capital appreciation.
Centennial Court is a development example. Alitis invested with a trusted and experienced developer to create a desirable multifamily income producing property. Development risk was reduced by mitigating entitlement (zoning and development permits) timeframes and establishing a fixed price construction contract.

Development return is calculated by multiplying Alitis’ proportionate share of a project by the difference between the current fair market value of the property and the total cost of its development. The property is deemed to be completed once construction has been completed to 98% and the property is 90% leased and/or rented.
Unless otherwise noted, the indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded returns for the period indicated, including changes in security value and the reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns.
