Office block sold at 74% mark-up
Wednesday 23 June 2010
Hammerson will make a 74 per cent return by selling an office block in London's Docklands for £134m in a portfolio reshuffle aimed at unlocking capital for new buys.
The property company has sold the 16-storey Exchange Tower, near Canary Wharf, to MGPA Europe Fund III for £3m more than its valuation at 31 December.
Hammerson is benefitting from a resurgence in investor interest in office space in the capital as prices and rents rally amid demand from would-be occupiers rises.
Hammerson acquired the 45,000 sq m tower in 1999 for about £77m and generated rents of £10.7m at the end of last year. Reuters
