Dream Office REIT is an unincorporated, open-ended real estate investment trust. Dream Office REIT is focused on owning, leasing and managing well-located, high-quality office properties.
We have been and remain committed to:
- Managing our business to provide cash flows and superior risk-adjusted returns, while managing our assets to maximize value over the longer term;
- Continual improvement in the quality of our portfolio by investing in assets through upgrades, intensification and redevelopment in order for our buildings to be attractive to our tenants and selectively disposing of assets with lower potential for long-term income growth;
- Building and maintaining a strong, flexible and resilient balance sheet; and
- Maintaining a REIT status that satisfies the REIT exception under the SIFT legislation in order to provide certainty to unitholders with respect to taxation of distributions.
Dream Office Management Corp. provides real estate services – including property management and leasing – to properties owned by Dream Office REIT as well as for other property owners. This structure provides us with the opportunity to earn revenue and profits from existing and future third party management contracts. We also believe that real estate is an operating business that requires active management in order to enhance value, increase yield and reduce risk to investors.
