The property is predominantly let to Irwin Mitchell LLP, which occupies the second to sixth floors as the company’s Birmingham HQ, with the remainder let to four other tenants.

The property was purchased for £16,460,000 which represents a net initial yield of 6.50%, assuming full costs of purchase of 5.8%. The underlying price is £274 per sq ft.

Peter O’Gorman, Senior Director at DTZ Investors said, “We are delighted to have secured this high quality regional asset and continue a period of strong transaction activity within this portfolio.
