* Singapore-based real estate investment trust Starhill Global REIT sold the four-story Nakameguro Place retail building in Tokyo's Meguro-Ward under a ¥525.0 million deal, reflecting a 3.1% yield. The sale price, according to a release, reflects a 25.0% premium over the property's latest ¥420.0 million valuation.
After the divestment, Starhill Global's portfolio in Japan was trimmed to two properties.
* Hebei Tianshan Zhengyao Real Estate Development Co. Ltd., an indirect Tian Shan Development (Holding) Ltd. subsidiary, agreed to buy for roughly 114.0 million yuan a 49% stake in the proposed Hebei Tianshan Kailongda Property Development Co.

Under the deal with Hebei Kailongda Food Co. Ltd., Hebei Tianshan Zhengyao will fund the acquisition of the plot.
