Allens and KWM help students get a room

Allens and King & Wood Mallesons helped a student accommodation deal go through

Firms: Allens (GIC); King & Wood Mallesons (Macquarie Capital)

Deal: GIC and Macquarie Capital take a majority interest interest in Iglu, a specialist student accommodation developer

Value: Undisclosed

Area: Capital markets and real estate

Key Players: Sydney partners Nicholas Cowie and Penny Nikoloudis led the Allens team, with KWM acting for Macquarie Capital

Deal Significance: Iglu has a property portfolio of around $150 million, with nearly 1000 beds in Sydney and Brisbane. The joint venture between Macquarie Capital and the Government Investment Corporation of Singapore (GIC) purchased its majority interest from the Plenary Group. “The off-campus student accommodation sector is experiencing strong demand and there is great potential for growth in well-adapted, specialised student accommodation assets which are well located and managed by experienced operators like Iglu,” said Cowie.
