“Actual in-place rents at Capital Square Apartment REIT’s Sapphire at Centerpointe property have increased by 17.2% since the second quarter of 2021,” said Louis J. Rogers, chief executive officer and chairman of the board. “With the recent addition of Saltmeadow Bay Apartments in the first DST/UPREIT transaction, we expect Capital Square Apartment REIT’s financial condition to be even stronger in the future as we grow the portfolio with well-performing, income producing multifamily properties.”
