UKCM completes GBP40m sale of last remaining City of London office

UK Commercial Property REIT Limited (UKCM), which is managed and advised by Aberdeen Standard Investments and owns a diversified portfolio of high quality income-producing UK commercial property, has completed the sale of its only City of London office asset, Eldon House, for GBP40 million, following exchange of contracts in early May.

UKCM acquired the property in 2015 for GBP27.8 million and recently completed its asset management plan, achieving full occupancy and capturing rental reversionary potential following a refurbishment of the building’s public spaces. 

Will Fulton, Lead Manager of UKCM at Aberdeen Standard Investments, says: “Eldon House has been a highly successful investment on behalf of our shareholders and, having completed our asset management plan, we feel now is the right time for us to part company with it. As a result, we no longer have any exposure to the City of London market. This disposal, along with the other recent sales we have achieved, also gives us further financial liquidity as part of our strong balance sheet.”
