Canada NewsWire

HALIFAX, NS , April 22, 2021 /CNW/ - Clarke Inc. ("Clarke" or the "Company") (TSX:CKI.TO) (TSX:CKI-DB.TO) today announced that it has entered into a joint venture with two other co-investors to acquire a one-third interest in a real estate development project in downtown Montreal that is currently under construction.  The building is located at 1111 Atwater Avenue, the former site of the Montreal Children's Hospital. The project involves a 38-storey building including seniors' housing and luxury condominiums, with extensive amenities for residents.

Clarke is investing in the project through Holloway Lodging Corporation ("Holloway"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Clarke acquired the interest of one of the former co-investors, and became a co-investor with the two remaining parties, Claridge MCH Limited Partnership ("Claridge"), and EMD-Batimo Inc. ("Batimo"). An affiliate of Batimo is also the Development Manager and the General Contractor for the project.  The deal closed April 21, 2021 , and the terms included cash consideration of approximately $21 million and the assumption of the Company's proportionate share of the construction financing of approximately $16 million .  The cash consideration was funded with cash on hand. In connection with the transaction, Holloway entered into a co-owners' agreement that governs the rights and obligations of Holloway, Claridge and Batimo with respect to the project.

This building won the Best Residential High-Rise Development award from the Americas Property Awards Development and was among the five finalists for the Best International Residential High-Rise Development. Clarke is looking forward to participating in this development project with two highly experienced partners in Claridge and Batimo.
