*DREAM GLOBAL REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST ANNOUNCES MAILING OF MANAGEMENT
INFORMATION CIRCULAR FOR SPECIAL UNITHOLDER MEETING TO APPROVE BLACKSTONE
ACQUISITION*

*TORONTO, OCTOBER 16, 2019 DREAM GLOBAL REIT (TSX: DRG.UN FRA: DRG, "Dream
Global REIT" or the "REIT") *announced today that it is mailing its
Management Information Circular (the "Circular") and related voting
materials in connection with the special meeting (the "Meeting") of the
unitholders of the REIT ("Unitholders") to approve the proposed transaction
pursuant to which affiliates of real estate funds managed by The Blackstone
Group Inc. ("Blackstone") will acquire all of Dream Global REIT's
subsidiaries and assets in an all-cash transaction valued at $6.2 billion
(the "Transaction"). The purpose of the Meeting is to approve the
Transaction, which presents Unitholders with the opportunity to earn a
premium return over and above the exceptional value created since the REIT's
2011 initial public offering.

On closing of the Transaction, Unitholders will receive cash consideration
of $16.79 per unit of Dream Global REIT (the "Units"), as described in the
Circular. This represents a significant premium of 18.5% to the closing
price of the Units on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") on September 13,
2019, the last trading day prior to the announcement of the Transaction.
Assuming the Transaction is completed by December 31, 2019, the 2019
annualized total return to Unitholders will be approximately 47%.

The Transaction requires a separation of Dream Asset Management Corporation
("DAM") (a subsidiary of Dream Unlimited Corp.) from its role as external
asset manager to the REIT.

The Transaction has the unanimous support of a Special Committee of
independent trustees of the REIT (the "Special Committee"). The Board of
Trustees, after receiving the unanimous recommendation of the Special
Committee and having received advice from its financial and legal advisors,
has also unanimously, other than with respect to certain trustees who have
declared their interest and abstained from voting, determined among other
matters that the Transaction is in the best interests of the REIT and the
Unitholders and to recommend that Unitholders vote FOR the Transaction.

TD Securities Inc. and National Bank Financial Inc. ("National Bank
Financial") have each provided fairness opinions to the Board of Trustees
which each state that, as of the date of such opinions, and subject to the
scope of review, assumptions, limitations and qualifications set forth
therein, the consideration to be received by Unitholders, pursuant to the
Transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to such Unitholders
(other than DAM and its affiliates). The Special Committee also received the
opinion of National Bank Financial which states that, as of the date
thereof, and subject to the scope of review, assumptions, limitations and
qualifications set forth therein, the aggregate amount payable in respect of
the internalization of the REIT's management is fair, from a financial point
of view, to the REIT.

The consummation of the Transaction is subject to the satisfaction of
certain customary conditions, including approval of at least 66 2/3% of the
votes cast by Unitholders at the Meeting and a majority of the votes cast at
the Meeting by Unitholders other than DAM and other related parties, and
certain regulatory approvals. On September 23, 2019, the Commissioner of
Competition issued an Advance Ruling Certificate in respect of the
Transaction, thereby satisfying the requirement to obtain Competition Act
approval, and on October 8, 2019, the TSX confirmed acceptance of the notice
of the Transaction, subject to delivery by the REIT of customary
documentation at or prior to the closing.

Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of all of the conditions to the
Transaction, the Transaction is expected to close in December 2019.

A copy of the Circular is available under the REIT's profile at
www.sedar.com and on the REIT's website at www.dreamglobalreit.ca.

*How to Vote*

Each Unitholder's vote is important regardless of the number of Units owned.
Unitholders are urged to vote FOR the transaction well in advance of the
proxy voting deadline for the Meeting of 5:00 p.m. (Toronto time) on
Thursday, November 7, 2019. Unitholders who have questions or need
assistance voting their proxy should contact Kingsdale Advisors, Dream
Global REIT's proxy solicitation advisor by telephone toll free at
1-888-370-3955, collect at 1-416-867-2272 or via email at
contactus@kingsdaleadvisors.com.

The Meeting is scheduled to be held at 9:00 a.m. (Toronto time) on November
12, 2019 at the TMX Broadcast Centre Gallery, The Exchange Tower, 130 King
Street West, Toronto, Ontario. Unitholders of record as of the close of
business on October 2, 2019 are entitled to receive notice of and to vote at
the Meeting.
