Custodian REIT splashes £6.25m on 60 Fountain Street

Dan Whelan

The company has acquired the 20,000 sq ft Manchester office building from developer McAleer & Rush, reflecting a net initial yield of 6.10%. 

Custodian REIT’s £6.25m purchase was funded through the company’s existing debt facilities. 

The six-storey office block is let to Leyton UK, Meridian Healthcomms, Venditan, and Fourthline.

The asset has a WAULT of 1.2 years and an aggregate rent of £406,704 a year. 

The short WAULT represents “potential asset management opportunities to enhance value and increase passing rent”, according to Richard Shepherd-Cross, managing director of Custodian Capital. 

Custodian REIT’s portfolio comprises assets typically valued below £10m. 

“This high-quality office building [is] in a proven central Manchester location, which continues the pre-emptive deployment of proceeds from the sale of a portfolio of industrial properties due to complete later this month,” Shepherd-Cross added.
