Key Property Investments Ltd, the joint venture between St Modwen Properties PLC and Salhia Real Estate Company of Kuwait, has sold a retail investment in York for £1 million.

Alan Williams, Director of Investment Properties, St Modwen Properties, said: “This property was acquired as part of a portfolio from Refuge Assurance, most of which after a programme of active asset management, has been sold.
