September 11, 2023, Vancouver, BC – Concert Income Properties (CIP) is pleased to announce the acquisition of The Standard, a Class A mixed-use multifamily building at 1142 Granville Street in downtown Vancouver.
As one of two corporate entities comprising Concert Properties, CIP maximizes long-term value for investors by acquiring, developing and managing industrial, office and now multifamily residential real estate in Canada.
“We expanded the asset mix of Concert Income Properties in January 2023 to include multifamily residential rental properties, which provides greater opportunities to find quality assets like this. This acquisition marks the first addition of a mixed-use residential rental building to the portfolio and builds on a history of growth and diversification,” says David Podmore, OBC, Managing Director, Concert Income Properties.
Completed in 2013, this 10-storey concrete mixed-used building includes 34,109 square feet of net rentable residential area and 2,316 square feet of net rentable commercial area, situated in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district on a 9,000 square foot site. ”We are very pleased to add this building to CIP’s asset mix as we strive to deliver industry-leading returns to our shareholders,” says Paula Benham-Parker, Vice President, Investments, Concert Properties.
“Since 1989, Concert Properties has proudly developed and managed purpose-built rental buildings for communities across Canada,” says Kerri Jackson, Senior Vice President, Property Management, Concert Properties. “We are excited about furthering this legacy of providing assured rental housing as we assume ownership and operation of The Standard.”
The pet friendly building includes 106 residential suites and has two fully leased commercial retail units facing Granville Street. Amenities include a fitness centre, tenant lounge, rooftop terrace, storage lockers, bike storage and underground parking.
The Standard was developed by Bosa Properties and has been owned and managed by the company since it was completed in 2013 and won the 2014 UDI Award for Best Affordable Project. Bosa Properties and Concert Properties have a 30-year relationship built on trust and shared values.
