McKay Securities Plc (McKay) has a sold an office in London´s square mile.
The asset at 30 Lombard Street in the City of London, was purchased for £76.5 mln (€89.7 mln) by an unnamed party.

The property was redeveloped early in 2019 and holds a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating.
Completion of the sale is expected to take three months. McKay said it will use proceeds from the transaction to pay down debt, prior to re-investment in new acquisitions and portfolio opportunities.
