Strategic acquisition in Carnaby

Shaftesbury PLC, the Real Estate Investment Trust which owns a 14.9 acre portfolio in London's West End, announces that it has exchanged contracts to acquire the freehold of 35 and 36 Great Marlborough Street, Carnaby for GBP22.7 million, inclusive of acquisition costs. This brings Shaftesbury's gross expenditure on acquisitions since 1 October 2017 to GBP140.1 million.

Located at the northern gateway in to Carnaby, the buildings comprise two shops (3,000 sq. ft.) with 4,250 sq. ft. of office accommodation on the upper floors. Current contracted income is GBP0.54 million per annum.

Brian Bickell, Chief Executive, commented:

"This important acquisition consolidates further our ownership at the busy northern entrance to the 14 streets of Carnaby.

We are discussing plans to materially improve the streetscape in the vicinity with Westminster City Council. Together with our wider estate management strategy, this will bring sustained growth in medium term rental prospects."
