Speymill Macau Property acquires AIA tower for $600 million 美國基金Speymill6億元購澳門友邦廣場 (美国基金Speymill6亿元购澳门友邦广场)

Speymill Macau Property Company Plc said it has acquired one of the only few Grade-A office buildings in Macau - AIA Tower for HK$600 million. Located at the heart of the Central Business District of Macau, the investment in AIA Tower has been made through the acquisition of Cayman Island company's entire issued share capital - Turbo Ventures Ltd.

AIA Tower has 292,335 sq ft (27,160 sq m) of office space, 80,396 sq ft (7,470 sq m) of spaces which cater for the various retail tenants including Starbucks at the bottom levels, as well as 186 car parking spaces. The capital values of the AIA Tower are priced at over MOP$3200 per sq ft only, as this will demonstrates a significant upside potential for office investments. The currently contracted occupancy rates for the AIA office and retail space are 93% and 71% respectively.

"We are very pleased with this acquisition - an investment which we believe provides an opportunity to capture the growth in the office sector in Macau and offers potential for significant rental growth on the back of strong demand for commercial space. By entering the commercial real estate market of Macau, we are continuing with our strategy of providing investors with access to a wide range of property investments in the region." said by Larry Kearns, Chairman of Speymill Macau Property Company.

摩根士丹利(大摩)、建生國際及美國Wachovia銀行共同持有的澳門友邦廣場, 9月6日以6億元出售予美國基金Speymill, 交易平均呎價為3200多元。

澳門友邦廣場由大摩及建生國際分別佔60%及25%權益、Wachovia佔15%。 友邦廣場全幢21層(包括5層商舖及16層寫字樓, 3層地庫停車場)。 寫字樓樓面達306,270平方呎, 其中3層樓面連命名權出租予友邦保險。
