Growing Places

Anthem Newsletter Fall 2017

Growing Places 2017 has been a year of significant change, as our various teams from Anthem and Anthem United move closer together as one organization, with an integrated business platform operated by 350 people (and growing). We have rebranded both Anthem and Anthem United, our

two brands,


vertical assets and land development respectively. In less than three years our vertical development portfolio has more than doubled in size. Our multi-family pipeline has grown from a few hundred to more than 11,000 homes completed, under construction or in design development. We have over 24 multi-family development communities coming to market within the next two years. Our single-family home building team in Sacramento is currently selling 300 homes. Our income property portfolio has grown steadily with 61 active retail and other income producing properties throughout BC and Alberta. We continue to rigorously pursue the land development business with 15 active communities. We have raised hundreds of millions in equity and debt capital dollars. So far in 2017, we have closed on 12 real estate acquisitions totaling almost $250 million, with another eight expected to complete before the end of the year. We are geographically diverse, with permanent operations in

four cities


Edmonton, Calgary, Sacramento and Vancouver. We pick a city based on its culture, growth potential and fit with our

five asset classes, and we stay there for

the long haul, with the city becoming a permanent part of our being. As we enter the last quarter of 2017, we continue in dogged pursuit of our vision – Great Space, Great People, Great Returns, Integrated Through a Bold Culture. As always, we value, appreciate and respect our relationship with you. Sincerely, Eric Carlson
