The acquisition was completed for a purchase price of $42.5 million, excluding taxes and transaction costs, and encompasses 243,000 square feet on 15.5 acres.</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>"With an in-demand location and market-leading features, the Capital East Business Centre is the best multi-tenant industrial facility in the Ottawa region," said K. Rai Sahi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Morguard Corporation. "Acquisition opportunities like the Capital East Business Centre do not come up often, and we are delighted to add this exceptional property to our portfolio as part of our sustainable growth plan."</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The acquisition increases Morguard's footprint in Ottawa, which has been amongst the strongest and most consistent real estate markets in Canada. In the Ottawa region, Morguard currently owns and/or manages approximately 4.8 million square feet of property, which allows for management synergies and reduced operating costs. The lack of developable industrial land and building restrictions due to the Ottawa Greenbelt has greatly limited the amount of new supply in the market, making Capital East Business Centre a highly sought after property.</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The property is prominently situated on Polytek Street in the Canotek Business Park, a premier business park just east of the Ottawa downtown core. The location offers easy entry to the Queensway and Montreal Road, providing excellent regional travel in all directions. </p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>The buildings were constructed in 2010 and 2015, with minimal capital expenditures forecast for the near future. The recent construction offers best-in-class features including clear heights of 28 feet and flexible unit configuration.</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>"This is a premier acquisition that supports Morguard's long-term strategy of investing in diversified, high-quality assets across North America," said Paul Miatello, Chief Financial Officer of Morguard Corporation. "This best-in-class asset in a strong market will provide steady cash flow and a solid return on investment."</p><font color="#000000" face="Times New Roman" size="3"> </font><p>About Morguard <br> Morguard Corporation is a major North American real estate company. It has extensive retail, office, industrial, multi–suite residential, and hotel holdings owned directly, or through its investment in Morguard REIT (TSX: MRT.UN), Morguard North American Residential REIT (TSX: MRG.UN) and Temple Hotels Inc.

Additionally, as of December 8, 2017 there were $60,000,000 principal amount Debentures of Morguard outstanding with an average daily trading volume for the prior six months of $20,500.</p><p>Morguard believes that its Units and Debentures have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect the value of such Units and Debentures in relation to the business of Morguard and its future business prospects. As a result, depending upon future price movements and other factors, Morguard believes that its outstanding Units and Debentures may represent an attractive investment for itself. Furthermore, the purchases may benefit all persons who continue to hold Units by increasing their equity interest in Morguard. All Units and Debentures purchased by Morguard under the normal course issuer bid will be cancelled.</p><p><strong>About Morguard North American Residential REIT</strong></p><p>The Morguard is an unincorporated, open-ended real estate investment trust which owns, through a limited partnership, interests in a portfolio of 16 Canadian residential apartment communities, located in Alberta and Ontario, and 30 U.S. residential apartment communities located in Colorado, Texas, Louisiana, Illinois, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland consisting of approximately 13,000 residential suites.</p><p>For more information, please visit Morguard.com.</p><p>SOURCE Morguard North American Residential Real Estate Investment Trust</p> <br> <p>For further information: Morguard North American Residential REIT, K.

The annual MAC Awards celebrate excellence in the residential rental housing industry. The Customer Service Award of Excellence recognizes residential rental companies that provide high standards of resident care and demonstrate a willingness to go above and beyond 'just housing.'</p><p>Aspen Grove was recognized for offering entertaining and educational social events that encourage residents to interact with others in the building in a positive environment. Regular on-site activities include conversational English classes, educational sessions on health and safety, weekly line-dancing and Bingo in the social room. To keep residents engaged and involved, Aspen Grove also provides 50 outdoor garden plots for residents to plant vegetables and flowers and hosts multi-cultural holiday events, including a gourmet year-end luncheon with gift cards and free entertainment. </p><p>"Since Aspen Grove residents are seniors, these on-site events offer a great opportunity for them to have quality social interaction without having to leave the property," said Sanjay Rateja, Morguard's Vice President, Operations.</p><p>The team at Aspen Grove also works in close communication with residents and the Region of Peel. As a rent-geared-to-income building, residents are required to fill out lengthy, complex rent renewal packages each year. Aspen Grove team members provide support and one-on-one assistance, including collecting the required documentation and sending the package to the right contact at Peel. During tax season, Aspen Grove provides on-site access to a government accountant to assist residents with completing their returns at no cost.</p><p>"I'm proud of the team at Aspen Grove, who exemplify Morguard's dedication to providing an exceptional living experience in our owned and managed apartment homes," added Mr. Rateja.
