Excerpt from "Prime Time for Real Property”, by Julius Melnitzer:

“I see this as being the future in the real estate area,” says Pincus.  He says Goodmans is currently working on several files where a US portfolio of assets will IPO on the TSX.  Pincus closed a transaction last summer with HealthLease Properties, a cross-border REIT that will IPO on the TSX in the hope of raising $140 million to buy two portfolios of seniors housing – one in Canada, the other in the US.  It’s a first in several ways, Pincus suggests:  “It’s the first time that a REIT in seniors housing has been structured so it does not have any operations in it.  We have a pure-play real estate seniors REIT which is basically developing and owning buildings for leasing for use as seniors residences or retirement homes."
