HONG KONG, June 5, 2014-- KKR, a leading global investment firm, and LIM Advisors, a leading Asian-based multi-strategy investment group, announced the completion of the joint acquisition of K Twin Towers, a prime commercial property in Seoul’s central business district.

Completed in 2012, K Twin Towers is a premium-grade commercial property located in the Gwanghwamun precinct within the Seoul central business district. It occupies more than 900,000 square feet [83,800 square metres / 25,300 pyeong] across 22 floors of premium office and retail space and has commanding views of the Gyeongbokgung Palace and the Presidential Blue House.
