Metropolitan Properties over the past year was successful in furthering its investment strategy in a challenging and continuously evolving market purchasing three multifamily communities comprising approx. 400 units across its target markets. These acquisitions include a value-add multifamily asset located in Canton, Massachusetts; a core-plus multifamily property located in Tewksbury, Massachusetts; and a value-add multifamily community located in Wakefield, Massachusetts.
