CCG & Beaumont Partners SA Acquire Second Montréal Student Housing Asset

Campus Crest Communities, Inc. (“Campus Crest”) (NYSE:CCG) and Beaumont Partners SA (“Beaumont”) announced that its joint venture partnership acquired the 488-room, 22-story Holiday Inn Midtown in Montréal, Québec on January 15, 2014 with plans to convert it into an upscale evo student housing tower near McGill University. The partnership paid approximately CAD $65 million for the property.

Campus Crest owns a 35% interest in the joint venture that holds the newest evo and the previously announced evo à Square Victoria, while Beaumont and its partners own a 65% interest. In conjunction with Holiday Inn acquisition, the partnership closed a new loan to help fund the conversion of both hotels into upscale student housing towers. The financing was provided by Royal Bank of Canada (lead), Bank of America and Raymond James. The partnership expects both evo properties to be completed for the fall of 2014, with leasing to begin in the first quarter of 2014.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with Beaumont with the acquisition of the Holiday Inn and to bring more of our unique evo student housing brand to Montréal. With its proximity to McGill University, we once again believe we have acquired an asset in an irreplaceable location at a discount to replacement cost,” said Ted W. Rollins, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Campus Crest. “We will be able to leverage the platform we put-in-place with our July 2013 acquisition of the Delta Centre-Ville Hotel and remain enthusiastic about the market. Our teams look forward to opening both Montréal assets for the 2014 – 2015 academic year.”

"We are pleased to increase our investment in Montréal and, together with our partner Campus Crest, we are committed to delivering the highest quality of student housing", said Alex Vahabzadeh, principal of Beaumont Partners. "We anticipate that our new properties will complement the numerous advantages and positive qualities of Québec's universities for local and international students."
