a development fund in the US “DREAM US Fund”. The launch of the ”DREAM US Fund” represents the first outbound overseas fund

raising offered to Japanese domestic investors by DREAM.  DREAM will robustly pursue to launch the crossborder transactions, including

The “DREAM US Fund”(The “Fund”) will co-invest (less than 49% interests) in multi-family and logistics development projects in the US

which have been undertaken by the DREAM’s sister company, Diamond Realty Investment Inc. (“DRI”), US based real estate investment company.

With total equity commitment of USD 51 million from Japanese institutions, the Fund will invest in three development projects.

The Fund has a life of 4 years and plans to exit through third party sale of the properties after the three development projects’ completions and

lease-up reaching stabilized occupancy level.

and one logistics development (located in California).
