Wang Jianlin's Dalian Wanda Group has sold the One Nine Elms project on the south bank of London's River Thames.

Guangzhou R&F Properties Co. is the buyer, according to Bloomberg and Reuters.

Bloomberg also report the imminent sale of its $1.2 billion Circular Quay, Sydney project and the $900 million Jewel complex on the Gold Coast.

Nine Elms is project billed as worth 700 million pounds on completion. It has planning approval for an apartment tower of about 56 stories and a five-star hotel.

Wanda paid 88.8 million pounds for the plot in 2013, a Land Registry filing shows.

Its sale adds to more than $9 billion worth of disposals over the past year as the real estate-to-entertainment group responds to government pressure to pare debt and focus overseas investments on assets considered strategically important to China.

The conglomerate, which has businesses that range from real estate to football and cinemas, had initially said it wanted to transfer ownership of some its overseas assets to its holding company as part of a restructuring, keeping them within the group. 

But the sale has instead gone to Guangzhou R&F Properties, a firm that has purchase other Wanda property assets.

Wang’s Wanda Hotel Development Co. said in November that it was doing a strategic review of its projects stretching from Sydney to Chicago and would consider opportunities that create value for shareholders.
