The Harvest Partnership, formed by Landsec and Sainsbury’s, sold the property to M&G Real Estate and Landsec, which will obtain 50% of the proceeds.
The partnership sold the shopping park after offloading the adjacent student accommodation unit for £37m to trade union Unite in September last year.
The head of retail development in Landsec, Andrew Dudley, said: “This is a clear example of Landsec working with a respected partner to deliver the right product at the right time. The scheme has seen strong demand for retail space and will offer a high-quality mix of brands for local consumers.
“Having de-risked the scheme with a 91% pre-let, this sale enables us to crystallise value on this development.”
Both projects will be under Development Management Agreements and will develop canal enabling works, highways improvements and a new public realm, according to a Landsec’s announcement.
The former shopping park and the student accommodation unit are expected to be completed by autumn 2018 and summer 2019, respectively.
