Excluding leverages with Majunga Tower as collateral, some 400 billion won cash will be sourced from a consortium comprising Mirae Asset Daewoo, Amundi Immobilier and other local institutional investors, the company said.
Mirae Asset expects over 7 percent returns each year from leasing. Tenants include AXA Investment Managers, a subsidiary of the Paris-based insurance giant, as well as consulting firm Deloitte.
Built in 2014, the 194-meter-height landmark with 65,000-square-meter floor area is the fourth-highest building in France.
