“The properties have been well-maintained and are in good condition,” said Akelius transactions and valuations manager Ben Scott. “We will complete necessary repairs identified by our engineers and update several of the common spaces, including hallways and lobbies.”
New Akelius acquisitions
The subsidiary of Sweden’s Akelius Residential Property AB added two downtown buildings: a recently renovated 68-unit apartment at 3421 Drummond St. close to the Ritz-Carlton Montreal hotel and Holt Renfrew; and a nearby 67-unit apartment with 24-hour doorman service at 3435 Drummond St. The company already owns another nearby property at 3468 Drummond St.
Akelius increased its presence in Westmount with a 145-unit building at 4800 Blvd. de Maisonneuve W. with doormen, a gym, an outdoor pool, a sauna and a sundeck. The company now also owns the nearby 10-storey, 135-unit apartment at 4555 Bonavista Ave. with 24-hour doorman service, an indoor pool, a sauna, a gym and a rooftop terrace.
These additions give Akelius 50 buildings with 4,414 units in Toronto and Montreal, where its respective offices and properties employ more than 100 people.
“We are continuously evaluating other Canadian markets, but our current focus remains growing and improving operations in Toronto and Montreal,” said Scott.
