Hannah Marshall, fund manager of the CBRE UKPP said: “It is key that we continue to recycle assets to ensure our portfolio is of the highest quality. In line with our strategy, we continue to invest capital in quality asset and creating value for our investors. As an asset based in a non-core location, it allows us to focus more on acquiring core properties which aligns with our portfolio strategy.”
