Investment Strategy

NI REIT was formed to acquire a seed multi-tenant industrial portfolio from an established property ownership group in Edmonton, Alberta, and has been designed for long-term growth in select Canadian markets. On a private placement basis, Nearctic Industrial Real Estate Trust is raising equity capital and issuing units in NI REIT. 

Led by an experienced and highly motivated management team, investors have an opportunity to invest in a growing and performing “A” class industrial portfolio.


NI REIT will pursue the acquisition of newly developed or targeted-for-repositioning industrial properties that meet the investment mandate of NI REIT — multi-tenant, urban industrial warehouse investment assets.

NI REIT will focus on targeted acquisitions in prime or rapidly improving locations that are: 

  • Newly built and stabilized industrial buildings or repositioning opportunities in under-supplied Canadian nodes with Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg being NI REIT’s initial geographic targets;
  • Performing multi-tenant properties in close proximity to existing or planned transportation infrastructure, commercial activity, logistical networks, and labour force offering densification opportunities;
  • Assets in communities experiencing high levels of intensification due to government investments in public transit, or other infrastructure as well as commercial corridors that have high levels of aged multi-tenant industrial inventory; and
  • Existing multi-tenant properties possessing characteristics that provide potential for growth in cash flow and valuation through repositioning and redevelopment strategies.

NI REIT would welcome the opportunity to provide qualified prospective investors with a Confidential Information Memorandum to review property and market specific information.
