SIR Hilliard Park funded the payment of the purchase price for the Hilliard Park Property with proceeds from the Company’s public offering. The Company intends to obtain mortgage financing on the Hilliard Park Property under normal and customary terms and conditions in the future.
The Hilliard Park Property was built in 2000 and consists of 26 two-story residential buildings situated on a 16.6 acre site.
