InterRent Announces Closing of $7 Million Acquisition in Ottawa, Ontario 
OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 25, 2014) -  
InterRent Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX:IIP.UN) ("InterRent")
announced today that it has closed on a previously announced property
acquisition ideally situated in Ottawa's west end for a purchase price of
$7.2 million. 
The property is located at the corner of Carling Avenue and Crystal Beach
Drive, directly across from the Ottawa River, in the neighborhood of Crystal
Beach and is adjacent to our previously announced acquisition that closed in
May of 2013. Situated in a predominantly residential area, the property offers
excellent views of the Ottawa River and is within close proximity to major bus
transit routes as well as highway 417 and the Bayshore Shopping Center.  
The Property consists of 2 1-bedrooms; 28 2-bedrooms; and 24 garden homes.
Combined with our previous acquisition in Crystal Beach, the REIT now has 141
rental units within close proximity to the former Nortel campus. This campus is
being refitted and the Department of National Defence has reported that it
expects to have 8,500 employees working out of this location within six years
with the first 3,300 scheduled to arrive late in 2015. The properties are being
purchased with a going in capitalization rate of 5.75% and is immediately
accretive to the REIT. The acquisitions will be financed through a conventional
first mortgage while the property is being repositioned.  
"With our years of experience in the Ottawa market, we believe that this
acquisition is in a great geographical location and represents a strong
addition to the long term strategy of growing the REIT's portfolio where
we believe we can create value for our Unitholders," said Mike McGahan,
