A Montreal-based real estate investment trust is expanding its presence in the National Capital Region.
BTB REIT says it has purchased a 50-per-cent interest in 7 and 9 Montclair Blvd. in Gatineau, near the Casino du Lac Leamy, for $6.05 million.
The two buildings total 74,425 square feet and are fully leased to multiple tenants including the federal government, a retail location of the L'Aubainerie chain as well as a La Cage Aux Sports restaurant.
Last month, BTB purchased an office building in Bells Corners at 245 Stafford Rd. W. for $6.6 million and, separately, bought an office property in Little Italy at 80 Aberdeen St. earlier this year for $14.1 million.
BTB says it focuses on mid-market office, industrial and retail properties in geographic markets east of Ottawa.
