EDMONTON, ALBERTA – Imperial Equities Inc. (“Imperial”) today has announced it has finalized the purchase of the Wajax Building in Red Deer, Alberta. The transaction, which closes March 31, 2021, is valued at $9.3 million.
The 34,811 ft² industrial building is situated on a 4.72 acre site (collectively “the Property”) within the Queen’s Business Park, a 640-acre industrial development area located along Highway 11A, with easy access to the Queen Elizabeth II Highway, Alberta’s busiest highway corridor. The property is fully leased to Wajax Limited, a publicly traded corporation which operates more than 100 branches across Canada and represents a wide range of leading world-wide manufacturers.
The precast concrete building was custom built for the Wajax in 2019, containing 34,811 ft² of total space, including 10,811 ft² of office space. The 24,000 ft² warehouse includes 1 dock door and 17 extra wide grade doors which are positioned to create drive-through bays. The building features two craneways and four 10-ton cranes spanning the length of the warehouse. It also features an SBS roof that extends beyond the north wall to provide a covered storage or work area which can easily be converted to create an additional 6000 ft² warehouse expansion.
“We are so pleased to have acquired this quality Property and tenancy in Red Deer and to once again extend our geographic footprint and our relationship with a top-tier tenant,” said Sine Chadi, CEO Imperial Equities. “This acquisition is Imperial’s first major transaction for 2021 and is indicative of our vision of stable and sustainable growth.”
