Melcor REIT sells office building in Kelowna, BC for $19.5 million


  • Office building with main floor retail with total gross leasable area of 71,600 sf on a 2.8 acre site.
  • Sold for $19.5 million ($272.24/sf), resulting in net cash proceeds of $9.0 million after mortgage repayment.

EDMONTON, Alberta, Feb. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Melcor Real Estate Investment Trust (Melcor REIT - TSX: MR.UN) today announced that it has completed the sale of Kelowna Business Centre in Kelowna, BC for $19.5 million (excluding closing costs).

Andrew Melton, Chief Executive Officer of Melcor REIT commented: “This property sale enables the REIT to pay down our line of credit to free up capital for other opportunities while also achieving a good return on investment for unitholders. We bought Kelowna Business Centre in conjunction with the REIT’s initial public offering in May 2013 and sold it for a premium to our purchase price. The property was cash flow positive while held by the REIT.”
