Bonnier and Varma Sign Lease in Helsinki
Finland Varma and Bonnier Books Finland have signed a long-term lease agreement on the premises located at Lönnrotinkatu 18 in Helsinki. Bonnier will move into the newly renovated loft-inspired premises in September 2017.
The functionalist building, which was completed in 1939, was renovated from top to bottom.
“Lönnrotinkatu 18 is a good example of a successful real estate development project. The renovation made use of the building’s old structures, while still emphasising the convertibility and usability of the spaces – the end result is modern office premises,” says Benjamin Kalliola, Real Estate Developer at Varma.
Other tenants of Lönnrotinkatu 18 include the winner of Masterchef Finland Miro Kurvinen’s new restaurant Kungfu Kitchen, Detur Finland Oy and MaaS Finland Oy. Nearly all the spaces in the building have been leased, and negotiations on the remaining vacant spaces are currently under way.
