A Canadian real estate investment trust has purchased apartment complexes in Loveland and in Colorado Springs.

Milestone Apartments Real Estate Investment Trust said it's buying the 168-unit Eagle Ridge complex in Loveland and the 276-unit Talon Hill complex in Colorado Springs as part of a $242 million national six-apartment complex purchase.

Eagle Ridge, built in 1999, is 97.1 percent leased and Talon Hill, built in 2006, is 97.7 percent leased.
