The deal includes 100, 200 and 300 Centron Park, which have been built, as well as rights to acquire future buildings at 400, 500, 600 and 700 Centron Park.

The real-estate trust also announced Tuesday it has completed its acquisitions of two properties in the province of Quebec, one in the Montreal area and the other near Quebec City.
