Allied is a leading owner, manager and developer of urban office environments that enrich experience and enhance profitability for business tenants operating in Canada’s major cities. Allied’s objectives are to provide stable and growing cash distributions to unitholders and to maximize unitholder value through effective management and accretive portfolio growth.

Allied specializes in an office format created through the adaptive re-use of light industrial structures in urban areas that has come to be known as Class I, the “I” stemming from the original industrial nature of the structures. This format typically features high ceilings, abundant natural light, exposed structural frames, interior brick and hardwood floors. When restored and retrofitted to the standards of Allied’s portfolio, Class I buildings can satisfy the needs of the most demanding office and retail tenants. When operated in the coordinated manner of Allied’s portfolio, these buildings become a vital part of the urban fabric and contribute meaningfully to a sense of community.

The Class I value proposition includes (i) proximity to central business districts in areas well served by public transportation, (ii) distinctive internal and external environments that assist tenants in attracting, retaining and motivating employees and (iii) significantly lower overall occupancy costs than those that prevail in the central business districts. This value proposition has proven appeal to a diverse base of business tenants, including the full range of service and professional firms, telecommunications and information technology providers, media and film groups and storefront retailers.

In addition to accommodating their employees in urban office space, many of Allied’s tenants utilize sophisticated and extensive telecommunication and computer equipment. This is often a mission-critical need for our tenants. In an effort to serve this related need, Allied established extensive capability in downtown Toronto through the acquisition of 151 Front West, the leading telecommunication interconnection point in Canada. Allied has since expanded its capability with a view to serving its tenants’ space requirements more fully.
