London investor Boultbee Brooks Real Estate has paid Himor £6.5m for St James's Court, a vacant office building at 24-30 Brown Street in Manchester's commercial core.
St James's Court contains 38,000 sq ft over five floors with underground parking. BBRE plans to undertake a full refurbishment of the property and is considering a roof top garden over the atrium.
The acquisition of St James's Court follows the purchase of Croxley House, announced last week.
Boultbee Brooks development director, Roger James, said the site 'is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the strong occupational demand we continue to see in Manchester.'
Will Ainscough, director of Himor, said: "We wish Boultbee Brooks all the best in delivering this exciting opportunity. They performed professionally and efficiently during the transaction and the deal went through seamlessly. We will now look to reinvest the money into brownfield strategic planning opportunities throughout the UK."
