Allied Completes $1.35B Toronto Data Centre Portfolio Sale

Allied Properties REIT has completed the $1.35-billion sale of a data-centre portfolio in downtown Toronto.

Japan’s KDDI Corporation acquired the properties through its wholly owned Canadian subsidiary KDDI Canada.

The portfolio comprises freehold interests at 151 Front Street West and 905 King Street and a leasehold interest in 250 Front Street West. KDDI agreed to purchase the portfolio in June.

With the deal completed, KDDI acquired its first set of Canadian data centres. The telecommunications company also owns and operates data centres in Asia, Europe and the U.S. through its Telehouse subsidiary.

Toronto-based Allied said in a news release that it has used most of the proceeds to pay down debt. The REIT which invests primarily in class A downtown low-rise office space, has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and shifting work patterns.
