TORONTO, June 19, 2018 /CNW/ - Summit Industrial Income REIT ("Summit" or the "REIT") (TSX: SMU.UN) announced today that the tenant at its Data Centre One ("DC1") has exercised its option to expand into the remaining 60,000 square feet of the 120,000 square foot building on the same terms and conditions under its existing lease.
Summit owns a 50% interest in DC1, located in the Barker Business Park Digital Campus in Richmond Hill, Ontario, in partnership with Urbacon Montreal Limited Partnership ("Urbacon"). DC1 is a brand new, purpose-built, state-of-the-art 10 MW data centre designated as Tier IV, the highest standard within the industry.
"This new lease expansion and extension bring significant benefits to Summit," commented Paul Dykeman, Chief Executive Officer. "Once DC1 is fully occupied, the new lease will make a significant and growing contribution to our Funds from Operations and increase our Net Asset Value. With the necessary investments made to accommodate the lease expansion, we estimate the yield on cost will rise to over 10% when the building is fully stabilized."
