Tishman Speyer Properties LP sold the Le Cristalia commercial building in a Paris suburb to JR AMC Co. Ltd. for 220 billion South Korean won, The Korea Economic Daily reported, citing sources with knowledge of the matter.
The South Korean trust manager carried out the transaction on behalf of Hana Financial Investment Co. Ltd. in a deal that is expected to yield 8.5% after euro/won currency hedging, according to the March 16 report.
The report added that the Seoul-based brokerage company injected an undisclosed amount of equity investment into a JR AMC vehicle for the purchase, with a plan to resell the investment to other domestic investors.
