London-based fund manager Moorfield Group has concluded a £30 mln (EUR 33.5 mln) sale-and-leaseback with leisure group Mitchells & Butlers for its 95,000 sq ft (8,826 m2) head office and adjoining 120-room hotel in Birmingham.
Moorfield has purchased the buildings for its Moorfield Real Estate Fund II which raised £400 mln of private equity on closing at the end of 2007. MREF II is backed principally by US endowment and foundation funds and European pension funds.
The hotel and office are on Fleet Street in Birmingham and the hotel is an Express by Holiday Inn. Both have been leased back to Mitchells & Butlers.
Colliers CRE acted for Mitchells & Butlers and Savills acted for Moorfield.
