Apartment Investment & Management Co. Research Report

On October 1, 2013, Apartment Investment & Management Co. (Aimco) announced
two investments that aim to upgrade its Boston area portfolio. The Company

it has entered into an agreement with Trinity Financial to develop a 12-story
building at One Canal Street in the historic Bulfinch Triangle neighborhood of
Boston's West End. Commenting on the acquisitions, Terry Considine, Chairman
and CEO of AIMCO, said, "Aimco's recent investment activities in Boston are an
important step to achieving our stated goal of upgrading our locations in that
market. While we like our allocation to the area, we seek to own and operate
properties at a higher price point than that of what has been a primarily
suburban portfolio. By adding the stabilized Charlesbank community to our
portfolio and partnering with Trinity to develop the One Canal Street
location, we are better positioned to serve our target customers in Boston."
