Posted by Ellandi on 24th Nov 2014

Colston Tower, an 89,000 sq ft office building & iconic feature of Bristol’s sky line has been sold for £12.3 million. 

The tower was acquired for £7.6 million by Ellandi & Development Securities in a joint venture off market deal in 2011 at an initial yield of 10.08%.   

A rolling refurbishment programme since acquisition has seen improvements both inside & out to the value of £1.9 million. These improvements have bought a number of new occupiers to the scheme and increased headline rents from £9.50 psf to £14.50 over the period of ownership.   

Colston Tower is Ellandi’s only non-retail acquisition & the sale allows the shopping centre specialists to further develop their growing portfolio which currently consists of twelve schemes with one more due to complete shortly.   

Mark Robinson, Investment Director of Ellandi said: 

“We have executed and then exceeded our business plan for this investment. This year has been a big year for Ellandi with the company doubling in size in terms of assets & staff. 

"The profitable sale of Colston Tower is a testament to the asset management principles, resources & expertise at Ellandi which can be applied across different sectors to achieve outstanding returns. "
