SL Green Sells London Office Asset

Stocks in this article: SLG

SL Green Realty Corp (NYSE: SLG) and its partner Westcore Properties today announced the sale of the Jersey Property Unit Trust (JPUT) that owns a long-term leasehold interest in Procession House, a Class A office building located at 55 Ludgate Hill in the City of London. The sale to a UK based property company for $100 million closed on November 22, 2012.

SL Green will receive approximately $34.3 million in net proceeds from the completed transaction and realize an internal rate of return in excess of 20% on its investment. SL Green and Westcore acquired the property’s mortgage in September 2010. When the mortgage defaulted in June 2012, Green Loan Services LLC exercised remedies and put the property into receivership.

David Schonbraun, Co-Chief Investment Officer commented, “The sale of Procession House represents the highly successful conclusion of what was a unique investment for SL Green, outside our usual geographic focus, but certainly within our debt investment and special servicing expertise.”

Procession House, built in 1999, is a fully-occupied 9,773 square-meter (105,195 sq. ft.) building located over the City Thameslink Station. The 9,129 square-meter (98,262 sq. ft.) office component is leased to Goldman Sachs International until September 2024. The remaining retail space is leased as well.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s London investment sales team led by Andrew Hawkins marketed the sale of the asset.
