Allied Properties Real Estate Investment Trust Provides Update on Calgary Portfolio

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 24, 2013) - Allied Properties REIT (TSX:AP.UN) reported that there has been only minimal flood damage sustained in its portfolio in Calgary, which comprises 17 properties aggregating approximately 850,000 square feet of gross leasable area. The City of Calgary will reportedly restore power into the downtown core at some point later this week and all of Allied's properties will become fully operational once power is supplied. Two properties, the Demcor Building and The Burns Building, experienced flooding in their basements, remediation of which is well underway. There have been no security issues whatsoever to report. Allied does not anticipate any material impact on its business and has insurance in place, which it anticipates will mitigate costs that may be incurred relating to the flooding.
