HNA, Teachers' Said to Lead Bidding for London City Airport

Chinaís HNA Group and a consortium led by Ontario Teachersí Pension Plan Board and Borealis Infrastructure are in the lead to buy London City Airport from its U.S. owners, people familiar with the matter said.

The central London airport, owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, could fetch more than 2 billion pounds ($2.8 billion), the people said, asking not to be named because the talks are private.

The companies have been asked to submit another round of bids Wednesday, and GIP hasnít chosen a winner, two of the people said. Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd. is also still interested in bidding, they said.

The airport, located about 6 miles (10 kilometers) from Londonís financial district and opened in 1987, was acquired by American International Group Inc. and GIP in 2006.

At the time, news reports said that the companies agreed to pay 750 million pounds, though terms werenít disclosed. Two years later, American International sold its stake to GIP and Highstar Capital, which now owns 25 percent.

Any deal would add to the $22.7 billion of airport-related acquisitions over the past 12 months, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Spokesmen for GIP, PSP and Borealis declined to comment.

Representatives for Ontario Teachersí and CKI didnít immediately respond to requests for comment, while a media representative for HNA said she couldnít immediately comment.

London Parking Lot Said to Sell for $140 Million to Investor

Shiva Hotels Ltd. agreed to buy a car park close to Londonís Oxford Street for about 100 million pounds ($140 million), according to a person with knowledge of the deal who asked not to be identified because the information is private.

Shiva Hotels is a closely-held hotel developer and manager whose assets include a Hilton at Heathrow Airport and a lodging at Gatwick Airport.

The plot of land at 30 Marylebone Lane is being sold by LaSalle Investment Management and has the potential to accommodate a 145-room hotel, according to a sales brochure for the property.

Developers are buying car parks to cinemas seeking to build more valuable offices, hotels and stores as London commercial property values soar. Billionaire brothers David and Simon Reuben bought a car park in Mayfair for about 70 million pounds in December, according to Estates Gazette magazine.

The car park being acquired by Shiva is close to the Selfridges department store and 400 meters from the stores on New Bond Street. A spokeswoman for LaSalle declined to comment and no one at Shiva was immediately available to comment.
