Office in Scotland sells at 15% yield

A deal has been struck for an office building in East Kilbride, near Glasgow, Scotland, representing a 15% yield.

Orbital House, located at Peel Park business park in Scotland’s largest town, has been acquired by a HKIP-sponsored investment vehicle for £4.3 mln.

The building comprises 69,358 ft2. of office space and has strong sustainability credentials after undergoing a recent refurbishment – achieving an EPC rating of A. Its current occupiers include Veolia, Close Brothers, and Target Healthcare.

Independent commercial property consultancy Knight Frank represented the purchaser.

Douglas Binnie, capital markets partner at Knight Frank Glasgow, said: 'There was a strong level of interest in Orbital House, with multiple bids from investors.

'The 15% yield is attractive, but the asset also benefits from relatively limited local competition and has a number of great features – particularly after its recent refurbishment.

'There is an increasing level of investor interest in quality business park assets in Scotland’s central belt, as occupier activity picks up and very limited new stock is coming through in the development pipeline.'
