The asset at Grensen 5-7, Oslo has a gross lettable area of approximately 14,000 sqm and is located 150 metres from Oslo’s principal shopping street, Karl Johans gate. The area is a sought- after office and retail location with excellent public transport links and a high footfall.

“We started investing in Norway a decade ago and over that time the market has emerged as an increasingly desirable destination for international capital. We have been particularly active in the Norwegian office sector in recent years, as reflected in this latest disposal in Oslo, where we have regeared all four current tenants and secured one additional tenant over the past four years,” says Jean Philippe Blangy, Head of Asset Management at Tristan Capital Partners.

“The Norwegian market has performed well in the past few years, with the office sector in particular being driven by robust demand and constrained supply. From an investment perspective, we still see value in Oslo and continue to proactively seek opportunities in strong locations,” says Anne-Jan Jager, Director at Tristan Capital Partners.

Tristan Capital Partners has executed 17 transactions valued at over EUR 1.4 billion in the Nordics since 2009. Seven of the transactions in Norway have completed since the end of 2015, with a total value above NOK 5 billion.

The sale of Grensen 5-7 was brokered by Pangea Property Advisors and Thommessen acting as legal counsel for EPISO 3. Malling & Co Project Finance has acted as the asset manager during the hold period.
