British Land sells Cambridge mall

British Land said yesterday it has sold the Beehive Centre in Cambridge to Orchard Street Investment Management for £109.2m. The 238,000 square feet retail park, bought by British Land in 1998, is anchored by a 70,000 sq ft Asda store and has 15 other tenants including TK Maxx and Next Home. Orchard Street said the deal, which reflects a net initial yield of 5.25 per cent, will increase its shopping mall portfolio to £1.4bn.
