Coinvesting with LPs to Expand Opportunity Set

Address: 111 Peter Street, Toronto

Strategy: In partnership with LPs, acquire a sizeable asset in the downtown west node – a node that appealed to TAMI tenancies and was one of nine buildings that could offer single floorplates to large tenancies.

Results:  Leased vacancies and renewed existing tenancies at significantly higher rental rates (exceeded proforma rental rates by 33% by year 3); stabilized the building to 100% leased with an attractive tenant mix and sold the asset to an institutional investor; the purchaser has since retained Crown for property management services for the building.

Results: Initiated building renovations and marketing plan to lease to single or multiple tenants; completed a 15-year lease for the entire building to a single tenant; the property was sold to institutional buyer post-COVID-19; purchaser has retained Crown for property management services for the building.
