In addition we announced $343 million of developments delivering in 2013 and 2014. The culmination of these transactions has reduced our median distance from campus to 0.2 miles from 1.3 miles, increased our average rental rate by 20% to $562 per bed and continues us along the path of adding well-located quality assets to our portfolio."
