HONG KONG (Reuters) - M&G Real Estate, a unit of insurance giant Prudential Plc (PRU.L), said on Tuesday it had acquired an office building in Seoul for $1.04 billion.
Centropolis Towers, the 26-storey twin-tower office building in Seoul’s central business district, will have a combined floor space of 134,399 square meters when it is completed in August, the company said.
