TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 28, 2017) - Allied Properties REIT (TSX:AP.UN) today provided a leasing update on a recently completed lease transaction in Montréal. "We've leased 46,000 square feet of GLA to Publicis at 6300 du Parc," said Tom Burns, Executive Vice President & COO.

The upgrade of this property is nearly complete. Comprised of 185,937 square feet of GLA, the building has Class I attributes, favourable column spacing and large floor plates.

Publicis has committed to lease 46,000 square feet of GLA in the property for a term of 10 years with occupancy commencing on January 1, 2018. This brings the leased area of the property to 90% and reflects the continued depth of demand for Class I office space in Montréal's Mile-End.
