British Land raises £1 billion for UK investment

British Land, the owner of the Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield and Drakes Circus in Plymouth, has raised nearly £1 billion to help it acquire a number of retail and office properties that are coming on to the market.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

British Land raises £1 billion for UK investment

The company has sold its Ropemaker Place development in London for £472 million and raised £493 million in a share sale to help it buy properties in the company’s core sectors with a focus on London and the South East.

The money raised in the share sale will be used to fund £213 million of recent purchases and another £150 million in negotiation. 

In a statement British Land said: "In recent months, the company has seen a clear acceleration in the flow of opportunities in its core sectors.

"Many of these opportunities are being driven by structural changes, as institutions reconfigure their property holdings and smaller competitors look to exit the UK market."

Last month, British Land bought the Ealing Broadway shopping centre in west London for £183.8 million from Werldhave NV.
