Major Commercial Real Estate Transaction: Liberty Park Sold and Rebranded

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Trevor Blakely, President of Canstone Realty Advisors Inc, is pleased to announce the acquisition of the former Liberty Business Park in borough of Saint-Laurent, in Montreal to be renamed NEXUS 40-13 International Business Center, on behalf of institutional investors including HOOPP, Forgestone Capital and Canderel. Canderel has been appointed Property Manager to oversee the project and will be directly responsible for all operations and leasing functions.

NEXUS means the "central and most important place" which aptly defines this project. Located at the junction of Highways 40 and 13, NEXUS 40-13 is easily recognizable by its distinctive architecture and unsurpassed highway exposure and visibility. The 1.7 million sq. ft., 27-building portfolio is home to more than a dozen, high-profile, multinational tenants including Telus, Canon, Xerox, Nike, ABB, Abbott, AbbVie, Kraft, Siemens, GN Johnston, Carrier, Alstom, Johnson & Johnson, Valeant, and Shire.

Among the portfolio's many features are its unique offering of both existing office and industrial space as well as development land. Widely regarded as the gold standard of suburban business parks, Nexus 40-13 has something to offer to both large and small tenants looking for high quality space.

This significant Joint Venture investment by highly recognized and respected institutional investors signals a renewed confidence in Quebec's economy. "Canderel is proud to be at the center of this revival", said Jonathan Wener, Canderel's Chairman and CEO. "This is the premier Business Park in Montreal, not only because of the quality of the properties but also due to its strategic setting. It's location at the junction of Highways 40 and 13 offers our tenants quality accommodations with high visibility and easy access to major transportation links and Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. The investment group is committed to maintaining and enhancing Nexus 40-13's stature with a variety of initiatives that will be announced in the coming months."
