Two Class A office buildings in downtown Vancouver have been acquired by a Toronto-based real estate manager and developer for $57.5 million. 

Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (Allied REIT) has entered into an agreement to purchase 151 West Hastings in Gastown and 1220 Homer Street in Yaletown. 

The West Hastings property includes 38,511 square feet of gross leasable area, currently leased to co-work company Spaces until 2033. The Homer Street property is comprised of 21,708 square feet, fully leased to Perkins + Will Canada Architects until 2023. 

“We’re increasing our penetration in urban Vancouver just as [Allied] is transitioning to a primary Canadian office market,” said Michael Emory, president and CEO for Allied REIT. 

Both sales are expected to have closed by November 30.

After a stellar 2017 when Metro Vancouver office property sales hit $1 billion for the first time, 2018 investment activity is down about one-third from last year’s pace, according to Altus Group.
