Kungsleden has signed a transfer agreement with Fastighets AB Stenvalvet to divest part of the property Aspgärdan 18 in Umeå. The property comprises a school building, which is leased to the International English School, and the sale price amounts to EUR 15M before deduction related to deferred tax.
Kungsleden has commenced the work of changing the zoning for the remaining part of the property into residential use. The new zoning under consideration is estimated to permit approximetly 18,500 BTA for residential purposes and another 2,500 BTA for commercial purposes. This part of the property has been acquired by HSB.
The property was erected for butchery purposes during the 1950s and 1960s, and has since been refurbished to enable light industry, offices, warehouses and event operations. In 2013, Kungsleden commenced the work of developing the property into a new neighborhood with housing, school and services. As an initial phase of the development, the existing premises were converted into school facilities for the International English School, which opened during the fall of 2015. Thereafter, the efforts to change zooning has been done to develop a new residential area.
The transactions will be finalized after change of zoning and real estate regulation. This is expected to take place by the end of 2017, when the handover of the two properties will also take place.
“We are proud to have been involved in developing the old butchery building in Umeå, both from a real estate and urban development perspective – and the value that has been created. We welcome the new owners to continue the asset management of the school and to further develop the new district that we have formed together with Umeå municipality,” says Frida Stannow Lind, Head of Property Development at Kungsleden.
