Busy French investor Corum XL is set to continue its regional offices buying spree with the acquisition of Onslow House in Guildford from Aberdeen Standard Investments for around £38m, CoStar News understands.
The 105,000 sq ft office on Onslow Street is principally leased to Electronic Arts, with Smith & Williamson also a tenant.
Corum XL has been a notably busy UK office buyer during the pandemic. In the last week of August it completed the £19.3m acquisition of Keats House at The Office Park, Leatherhead in Surrey from Longmead Capital. The deal reflects a net initial yield of 6.8%.
The prior week it had bought the Lansdowne Gate office building in Solihull from an institutional balanced fund managed by Columbia Threadneedle Investments for £19m, reflecting a net initial yield of 6.46%.
In July it bought 1 Mere Way on Ruddington Business Park in Nottingham for £6.275m, reflecting a net initial yield of 6.72%.
And at the end of March it bought 2 Roundwood Avenue in Stockley Park, west London from Janus Henderson's open-ended UK Property PAIF for £40.5m or a 6.7% yield.
