L'edificio piu' alto della City of London, chiamato amichevolmente "La grattugia", é stato venduto per 1.15 bilioni di sterline a una societá di Hong Kong. La vendita piu' alta di un immobile registrata dal 2014 nel paese. Segno che gli investitori stranieri hanno ancora una forte presenza a Londra.
The “Cheesegrater”, the tallest building in the City of London, has been sold to a Chinese property tycoon for £1.15bn, the second-biggest ever sale of a UK building. The developer behind the 224 metre tower, British Land, and its joint venture partner Oxford Properties, have sold the landmark building to CC Land, a Hong Kong-listed company controlled by Cheung Chung-kiu. The deal is the biggest sale of a single building in the UK since 2014, when the HSBC tower was sold to Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund for £1.18bn. It is also one of the biggest Chinese purchases of UK property. The sale suggests investor interest in UK property remains strong, despite Britain’s vote to leave the EU last summer. The weak pound has drawn in global investors, despite uncertainty created by the referendum
