"2014 was a key year for us as we continued to effectively execute our strategy to transition and upgrade our portfolio to more high-quality, well-located assets in urban in-fill locations," said Paul T.

Furthermore, the actions we have taken, and continue to take, to enhance our operations are gaining traction and are positively impacting our results as demonstrated most notably by our achieving same-store NOI growth of approximately 8 percent in the fourth quarter.
