The four-storey building has ca. 14,400 m2 of leasable area and 67 tenants, including Bio Rex cinema, fashion retailer Moda, Fitness 24/7, Gina Tricot and Sampo pharmacy.

"The biggest strength of Sampokeskus is its very central location in the immediate city centre of Rovaniemi. The property is surrounded by hotels and other services, and the continued growth of tourism in Lapland increases demand for services in the area. In addition, we see the recent city centre development plans by the City of Rovaniemi as a positive driver for Sampokeskus,” comments Trevian Funds AIFM’s portfolio manager Amalia Pöyry.

"The divestment of Sampokeskus is a natural step in our strategy to refine our Nordic portfolio and focus on larger grocery-anchored shopping centres in urban crosspoints. We will use the proceeds from the divestment to strengthen our balance sheet and to fund our development pipeline,” says Tom Lisiecki, Chief Development Officer at Citycon.
