A BlackRock-linked entity has agreed to sell a pair of student dorms in the UK to Singapore-listed property developer Far East Orchard for £66.5 million ($85 million).

The subsidiary of Far East Organization purchased the assets from a company that lists BlackRock’s London-based managing director Paul Winters as a director prior to 8 November.

The addition of the two freehold properties in Leeds and Sheffield, which have a combined 974 beds, brings Far East Orchard’s UK student housing portfolio to 3,260 beds across 11 dorms in six cities, according to a company filing.
