DALLAS, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Behringer Harvard Multifamily REIT I,

appreciate the new standard of luxury living that Mission Gorge will offer, as
well as the easy access this well-located community will provide to the
Mission Valley area and employment centers throughout San Diego."

"We welcome this opportunity to work with the REIT, one of the most respected
multifamily owners in the country, to develop this high-quality multifamily
community in an incredible city," said Neil Brown, a principal of KNR Mission

Residents of Mission Gorge will enjoy luxurious amenities including
