Palisades at Chenal Valley was developed in 2006 and is located within the master-planned Chenal Valley development which offers extensive outdoor recreation venues, medical and professional employment centers, upper end shopping and the area's finest golf venues. The community offers upscale amenities including a resort-style pool with outdoor grill, a billiards room and a walking trail. Units average 1,181 square feet and include 9' ceilings, garden tubs and crown molding.

River's Walk at Celebrate Virginia, formerly The Haven at Celebrate Virginia, was developed in 2011 as the first garden-style Virginia apartment community to receive the National Association of Home Builders Green Designation. The Property is located in the 2,400-acre mixed-use Celebrate Virginia planned unit development which boasts award winning schools, high-end retail and entertainment venues and is located near large employers. Located just off I-95, the community also provides easy access to major employment centers in Washington and Richmond, Virginia.

The units offer 9' ceilings, island kitchens with granite countertops, full washer and dryer sets and screened porches.

Commenting on the announcement, Al Campbell, EVP and CFO said, "We are excited to be expanding our operations in the Northern Virginia area. This newest investment is located a short drive from several major employment centers including the GEICO Campus, the University of Mary Washington and the Mary Washington Hospital. Additionally, the property provides close access to the Virginia Railway Express, a commuter rail service connecting Fredericksburg, VA to Washington, D.C. Both of these high quality and stabilized acquisitions are expected to be accretive to next year's earnings and shareholder net present value."

The acquisitions totaled approximately $67.5 million and were funded by borrowings under the company's current credit facilities and common stock issuances through MAA's at-the-market program.
