Fort Kinnaird

M&G Real Estate has snapped up a 50% stake in the Fort Kinnaird retail park in Edinburgh in one of the biggest retail investment deals this year and entered a JV with new co-owner Hercules Unit.

The fund manager has acquired the stake in the park from The Crown Estate for £167.25m and created a new joint venture with Hercules Unit Trust (HUT), which owns the other half.
