“This acquisition is a great value-add investment in a strong Portland
submarket,” said Kurt Zech, president of Kennedy Wilson Multifamily Management
Group.“The market has strong projected employment and rent growth that
exceeds most other West Coast markets due to a burgeoning tech center and
favorable tax benefits, offering an affordable living option to Portland.”

The Pointe is located in the eastern Vancouver submarket directly off of the
205 Freeway and is the largest suburb in the Portland MSA as well as the
fourth largest city in Washington by population. Built in two phases, the
property is comprised of 35 residential buildings consisting of two and three
story walk-ups. The neighborhood surrounding The Pointe is well served by
retail amenities and recreation and is a short distance to numerous job
centers including the top technology employers in the city.

Kennedy Wilson’s global multifamily portfolio now totals 16,899 units,
including 3,450 apartment units in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S.
