A property investment company has increased its presence in Scotland with two deals totalling £13.5 million.
London-based Aprirose has acquired the Morrisons supermarket in St Vincent Place, Lanark, and Helix House, an office building in Aberdeen.
The Morrisons site was acquired from Jersey-based Leto Limited for £5.65m and the supermarket chain giant recently signed a 25-year lease to remain as occupier of the site. Helix House, on Raiths Industrial Estate, was acquired from Helix Well Ops for £7.8m.
Gary Jones, chief operating officer at Aprirose, said: “We are always looking for the best investments for our clients and we believe there are some very good opportunities in the Scottish market at the moment.”
Aprirose owns seven other assets in Scotland, including offices and supermarkets in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
