La Française collective real estate investment vehicle acquires a second UK asset

13 July 2020

This content is for professional investors only as defined by the MiFID.

A La Française collective real estate investment vehicle, represented by La Française Real Estate Partners International, has acquired its second UK asset from Pencross Assets Limited.

The property is located at 17-18 Haywards Place EC1, which is considered to be a prime Clerkenwell location in close proximity to Farringdon Thameslink and London Underground station. The station is shortly to be enhanced by the opening of the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail), becoming one of the few stations in London to provide an interchange between the north / south Thameslink service and the Elizabeth Line, as well as the London Underground network through the Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan Lines.

The warehouse style building was subject to a back to shell refurbishment and extension in 2018 and now provides 11,000 sq.ft. of grade A offices across six floors. The property is fully let to four tenants.

The agreed purchase price was £15.56m and purchase reflects a net initial yield of 4.22%. Crossland Otter Hunt represented La Française Real Estate Partners International and Cyril Leonard represented the Seller.

David Rendall, CEO of La Française Real Estate Partners International said, “We are delighted to secure a second property in the UK so quickly after the acquisition of 90 Bartholomew Close in April 2020.”

Peter Balfour, Investment Director of La Française Real Estate Partners International - UK said, “17-18 Haywards Place follows the theme of focusing on buildings that are attractive to modern occupiers and which benefit from improvements to the transport infrastructure in London.”
