Buccleuch Property and joint venture partner Wrenbridge have sold the 38,840 sqft Mill Court business park in Cambridge for £9.85m.
The site was sold to Hermes Real Estate Investment Management, reflecting a net initial yield of 7.3%.
The established office scheme comprises five office buildings set within landscaped surroundings, with on-site car parking with 155, was purchased by Buccleuch Property in 2014.
A joint venture with Wrenbridge, who together asset managed the park, Buccleuch Property made a significant investment of over £0.5m in the site to further enhance the offering.
Nick Waugh, commercial property director at Buccleuch Property, said: “There is a strong demand for high-quality office space in Cambridge and the investment we made in Mill Court has given both large and small businesses the opportunity to access premium, yet affordable, accommodation with good transport links.
“Working with Wrenbridge we were able to provide tailored office space to suit the needs of tenants, and with a number of small businesses coming on board this was even more important.
“Mill Court is a prime example of Buccleuch Property’s full portfolio of skills and partnership working, from successfully asset managing the site through to securing new tenants and selling it to Hermes, and we continue to actively seek new investment and development opportunities like this across the UK.”
James Feltham, associate director at Wrenbridge, said: “We have seen considerable rental growth at Mill Court which reflects the performance of the wider Cambridge office market and the property’s location, benefitting from excellent transport links, neighbouring science parks and Astra Zenica’s new headquarters”.
Buccleuch Property was represented by Bidwells.
