Billionaire Leong Is Said to Buy $338 Million London Office

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...-london-office

Quote:
Hong Kong billionaire Angela Leong has bought a historic building in London’s Aldwych district for about 250 million pounds ($338 million), people with knowledge of the deal said.

Leong, who is married to casino magnate Stanley Ho, has completed the purchase of Aldwych House from Rowan Asset Management and GI Partners LLC, the people said, asking not to be identified because the deal is confidential.

Chinese and Hong Kong buyers spent almost 4 billion pounds on London commercial property in the first half of the year, up from 2.7 billion pounds in the whole of 2016, according to data compiled by broker CBRE Group Inc.
