Forsters' Student Accommodation Team Advises Far East Orchard on Southampton Purchase

Acting for Singapore-based property firm Far East Orchard, we are delighted to announce that our Student Accommodation team has completed on the purchase of the Emily Davies Halls of Residence, a purpose-built student accommodation development in Southampton, for £13.9 million.

This transaction involved input from across the firm with the team made up of Partners and Associates from Commercial Real Estate, Construction, Planning, Residential, Corporate, Employment and Tax.

The purpose built student accommodation sector continues to show its resilience in the face of current market uncertainty, with such assets proving ever popular with overseas investors.
