Epic Investment Services Closes on Industrial Portfolio in Quebec with Woodbourne Capital Management
Epic Investment Services (“Epic”), in partnership with Woodbourne Capital Management, has acquired three industrial properties in Montreal, Quebec. Totalling over 200,000 square feet, the portfolio is located in the Anjou and Saint-Léonard boroughs of the island of Montreal. In addition to jointly executing on the transaction with Woodbourne, Epic has been appointed as asset and property manager of the properties.
“We are excited to expand our portfolio in Canada’s highest industrial rental growth market,” said Aaron Moore, Senior Vice President, Investments. “This is the third programmatic acquisition we have executed for our small bay strategy in the last 12 months. Through our integrated platform, we are positioned to leverage our highly experienced Montreal team drive significant value on these assets.”
The portfolio is 96.5% leased to a broad range of tenants with buildings predominantly composed of small bay units benefitting from clear heights ranging between 18’ and 22’ and low office build out. With a geographic concentration within a 1.5 km radius, all properties have convenient access to the island’s network of highways connecting the Greater Montreal Area with the rest of the country.
Epic has been operating as Epic Quebec in the region since 2007 and oversees a portfolio of office, industrial and multifamily assets.
Epic continues to reinforce its operations across Canada to offer institutional and high-net worth clients more opportunities to invest in prime markets to deliver on asset and alternative investment goals.
