International real estate advisor Savills, on behalf of Savills Investment Management’s UK Income Growth Fund, has acquired a mixed-use building in Lytham St Annes from RO Real Estate for £6.7 million.  The deal reflects a net initial yield of 5.67%.

The property is prominently located within the affluent coastal town and provides 12,345 sq ft (1,147 sq m) of retail accommodation plus a 61-bedroom hotel which is split across four storeys.  The property is fully let to tenants including Travelodge, M&S and Costa Coffee producing an annual rent of £405,146, with a long average weighted unexpired lease term of 15 years.

Freddie Guest, associate in the investment team at Savills, comments: “We are very pleased to have secured the acquisition of this excellent mixed-use building in Lytham St Annes on behalf of our client.  The opportunity was very attractive due to the long dated income offered, 90% of which is secured against national covenants and 58% of which benefits from guaranteed RPI linked rental increases.”

RO Real Estate was represented by Ben Urquhart and Luke Wilson of CBRE. They commented: “We received an excellent level of interest in this asset and were delighted to conclude a sale for our client RO after a competitive bidding process. The sale demonstrates the attractiveness of mixed-use, long income assets and we expect strong investor demand to continue for similar type of opportunities.”
