Student accommodation provider Unite Group has sold a pair of properties.
Orient House at Imperial Wharf has been sold to Imperial College London for £20.6 million.
Greenview Court in North London has been sold to a private investor for £6 million.
Both properties were considered to be non-core assets for Unite.
The disposals are part of a ‘selective disposal programme’. This is so Unite can focus investment on larger developments in London, such as the 951-bed scheme next to Olympic Park on which it secured planning in December 2011.
Richard Simpson, managing director of property at Unite, commented: "The completion of these sales marks further good progress in our disposal programme of non-core assets and enables us to recycle our capital to support our focus on our London development pipeline."
Imperial intends to use Orient House to extend its graduate accommodation service, GradPad.
Jane Neary, director of commercial services at Imperial College London, said: "We have been developing Imperial's Gradpad portfolio to improve the choice of student accommodation available to postgraduates studying in London."
