(Bloomberg) -- ESR Cayman Ltd. has agreed to buy a portfolio of warehouse and logistics assets in Australia from Blackstone Group for about A$3.8 billion ($2.9 billion) in the country’s biggest real estate transaction in five years.The Hong Kong-listed property manager partnered with GIC Pte. for a newly-formed vehicle in the acquisition of the assets, according to a press release on Sunday. The Singaporean sovereign wealth fund will contribute 80% of equity, while ESR will account for the rest. The portfolio consists of 45 assets held by Blackstone’s Milestone Logistics.Blackstone started the sale process in January and received more than 10 first-round bids, according to the statement. ESR beat out four other shortlisted bidders, it said.At $3 billion, the sale would mark the largest real estate transaction in Australia in five years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. It underscores the growth in warehousing, which has become one of the most sought-after property classes, partly because of the surge in online shopping during the pandemic.The logistics portfolio was assembled by Blackstone over dozens of individual transactions that began with a deal with Australian developer Goodman Group in 2016.The assets, which count Woolworths Group Ltd. and Australian Postal Corp. among clients, are expected to provide an initial yield of 4.5% with a 6.9-year weighted average lease expiry. The transaction will take ESR’s asset under management in Australia to A$7.9 billion.(Updates with confirmation throughout the story.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Italy's Imola circuit is the latest stop in the 2021 Formula One calendar as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen prepare for round two with the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. Hamilton held off Verstappen against the odds in Bahrain after his young title rival had dominated practice and qualifying, but the European venue is a different task. The fast and flowing anti-clockwise layout is also narrower and bumpier than Bahrain, and with fewer opportunities to overtake which means track position and strategy will play a bigger part.
Safety regulators in the US have warned people with families and pets to stop using a treadmill made by Peloton after one child died and others were injured. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said children and at least one pet were pulled, pinned or entrapped under the rear roller of the Tread+ treadmill, leading to fractures, scrapes and the death of one child. The safety commission said in a news release and in emails that it knows of 39 “incidents” with the treadmill, involving “dozens” of children.

Meet the woman who splashed out £10k turning her home into a pink palace - complete with matching dog bedrooms and a pink motorbike for her fiancé. Maria Alison, 29, has spent the last two years decorating her modest Sunderland semi-detached house that she bought in May 2019 almost entirely pink. The pink-obsessed woman began her colour coordinated journey when her Stepdad, Michael Heslop, 64, gifted her a pink kettle and toaster at her engagement party in May 2019.
Moravia aveva voluto tenerlo aperto a tutti i cittadini, ma ora il passaggio che dagli anni sessanta è stato usato da migliaia di persone per raggiungere la spiaggia di Sabaudia è stato chiuso dai nuovi proprietari della villa che appartenne allo scrittore. Sfiora ormai le 900 firme ed è in crescita costante la petizione su change.org per riaprire "il sentiero di Moravia" e l'associazione locale "Il Fortino" ha presentato esposti a tutte le autorità competenti a gennaio. La polizia municipale ha aperto una indagine, ma ancora non è accaduto nulla. La speranza è che il sindaco di Sabaudia proclami il sentiero di pubblica utilità, anche in vista della stagione turistica dove in tutta l'area del Circeo si prevede il pienone. Il sentiero si trova sulla strada litoranea che costeggia la spiaggia di Sabaudia, uno degli arenili liberi più belli e più grandi d'Italia. Stretto da due ville, è l'unico accesso alla spiaggia ombroso e dotato di scalini di pietra, mentre altrove si usano passerelle di legno in cattivo stato. Per questo da anni è usato da anziani e famiglie con bambini, ma si è anche rivelato di grande utilità per agevolare l'arrivo dei soccorritori con barelle. L'uso pubblico è talmente notorio, che nelle vicinanze vi è una fermata dell'autobus locale. Ora che il passaggio è chiuso, un lungo tratto di spiaggia aperto al pubblico diventa di fatto inaccessibile. Venendo dal Monte Circeo, c'è infatti ben più di un chilometro fra una precedente sentiero disagevole fra le dune e la successiva scala di legno che porta ad alcuni stabilimenti balneari. Approfittando delle restrizioni covid e del minor passaggio nei mesi invernali, alla fine del 2020 i nuovi proprietari dell'ex villa di Moravia hanno chiuso la porta di accesso sulla strada e hanno inglobato la parte iniziale del sentiero nella proprietà, costruendo un secondo cancello interno. "Noi non abbiamo mai detto che quel sentiero non sia di proprietà privata, lo è, però è anche un sentiero che unisce due entità pubbliche", spiega all'Adnkronos, Giulio Schisani, uno dei fondatori de Il Fortino, associazione apartitica che dal 1987 si batte per la tutela del Circeo. Alberto Moravia ne è stato socio onorario. E lo stesso scrittore, che molti frequentatori della spiaggia ricordano seduto sulla sua sedia a guardare il mare, era un deciso sostenitore dell'accesso pubblico all'arenile. "Moravia stava là, sulla spiaggia e ci disse: 'io quel sentiero lo lascio aperto, perché è giusto che tutti ne usufruiscano'. Io sono testimone della volontà di Moravia", racconta Schisano. Al di là del corso che faranno gli esposti, ed eventuali altri ricorsi legali, in una zona tutelata come quella del parco del Circeo, la soluzione secondo Schisani dovrebbe essere prima di tutto politica. Il sindaco di Sabaudia, Giada Gervasi, potrebbe dichiarare la strada di pubblica utilità, anche se privata. L'uso pubblico, spiega Schisani, "si sostanzia in una servitù di passaggio a favore di tutti i cittadini, in quanto serve a collegare un luogo pubblico (la strada) ad un altro luogo pubblico (la spiaggia)". Tanto più che esiste un regolamento della regione Lazio che impone "varchi di accesso all'arenile nella misura di uno ogni 300 metri di costa".
The daughter of hunger-striking Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny called on Russian authorities on Sunday to allow a doctor to treat her father in prison, a day after a group of medical professionals warned he is at risk of kidney failure. Navalny, a fierce opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin, started refusing food on March 31 in protest at what he said was the refusal of prison authorities to provide him with proper medical care for acute back and leg pain. Prison authorities say they have offered Navalny proper medical care but that the 44-year-old opposition politician has refused it and insisted on being treated by a doctor of his choice from outside the facility, a request they have declined.

N'DJAMENA (Reuters) - The United States has ordered its non-essential staff in Chad to leave the African country as rebel fighters approached the capital on Sunday after early election results showed President Idriss Deby on course to extend his three-decade rule. Deby, who seized power in 1990 at the head of an armed rebellion, is a staunch ally of France and the United States in the fight against Islamist militants in the arid Sahel region. "Due to their growing proximity to N'Djamena and the possibility for violence in the city, non-essential U.S. government employees have been ordered to leave Chad by commercial airline," the U.S. state department said in a statement.

Jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny risks cardiac arrest at "any minute" as his health has rapidly deteriorated, doctors warned Saturday, urging immediate access to Russia's most famous prisoner. On March 31, President Vladimir Putin's most prominent opponent went on hunger strike to demand proper medical treatment for back pain and numbness in his legs and hands.On Saturday, US President Joe Biden added his voice to a growing international chorus of protest at the treatment of the activist, describing his situation as "totally unfair".Navalny, 44, was imprisoned in February and is serving two-and-a-half years on old embezzlement charges in a penal colony in the town of Pokrov around 100 kilometres (60 miles) east of Moscow.Navalny's personal doctor Anastasia Vasilyeva and three more doctors including cardiologist Yaroslav Ashikhmin have asked prison officials to grant them immediate access."Our patient can die any minute," Ashikhmin said on Facebook on Saturday, pointing to the opposition politician's high potassium levels and saying Navalny should be moved to intensive care. "Fatal arrhythmia can develop any minute." Navalny barely survived a poisoning with the Novichok nerve agent in August which he has blamed on the Kremlin. His doctors say his hunger strike might have exacerbated his condition.Having blood potassium levels higher than 6.0 mmol (millimole) per litre usually requires immediate treatment. Navalny's were at 7.1, the doctors said."This means both impaired renal function and that serious heart rhythm problems can happen any minute," said a statement on Vasilyeva's Twitter account.The doctors said he had to be examined immediately "taking into account the blood tests and his recent poisoning".'Alexei is dying'Navalny's spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh, who accompanied him when he collapsed on a plane after the poisoning in August, said the situation was critical again."Alexei is dying," she said on Facebook. "With his condition it's a matter of days."She said she felt like she was "on that plane again, only this time it's landing in slow motion", pointing out that access to Navalny was restricted and few Russians were aware of what was actually going on with him in prison.On Saturday, responding to reporters' questions about Navalny's plight, Biden responded: "It's totally, totally unfair, totally inappropriate".More than 70 prominent international writers, artists and academics, including Jude Law, Vanessa Redgrave and Benedict Cumberbatch, have called on Putin to ensure that Navalny receives proper treatment immediately.Their appeal was published late Friday by France's Le Monde newspaper.Navalny's team had earlier announced plans to stage what they said would be "modern Russia's biggest protest". Navalny's allies said they would set a date for the protest once 500,000 supporters had registered with a website. As of 2230 GMT Saturday, more than 450,000 people had signed up.Yarmysh on Saturday urged more Russians to sign up, saying that a big rally could help save Navalny's life. "Putin only reacts to mass street protests," she added.Earlier this week, Navalny's wife Yulia, who visited him in the penal colony, said her husband now weighed 76 kilograms (168 pounds) -- down nine kilograms since starting his hunger strike.On Friday, Russian prosecutors asked a court to label Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation and the network of his regional offices "extremist" organisations in a move that would outlaw them in Russia and could result in jail time for their members."The darkest times are beginning for free-thinking people, for civil society in Russia," said Leonid Volkov, the head of Navalny's regional offices.(AFP)
