  • Industrial warehouse located in Lethbridge, Alberta with total gross leasable area of 67,610 sf on 2.89 acres
  • Sold for $8.0 million ($118.32/sf). The property was purchased for $5.9 million ($87.27/sf) in January 2014.

Melcor Real Estate Investment Trust (Melcor REIT) (TSX: MR.UN) today announced that it has completed the sale of LC Industrial in Lethbridge, Alberta for $8.0 million (excluding closing costs).

Andrew Melton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Melcor REIT commented: “With this sale, we are freeing up capital for other opportunities while also achieving a good return on investment for unitholders. We bought LC Industrial, added value, extended the lease term of the largest tenant and then sold it for a 36% premium to our purchase price. The property was also cash flow positive while we held it. This disposition was a good opportunity to recycle capital for the REIT.”
