Emil Christian Hansen House is under construction and will be completed in early 2021. The building has 5 floors plus basement, and the area amounts to approx. 16,000 sqm office space and 3,700 sqm basement. When the building is finished, Visma moves in as the only tenant on a long contract.
"With this acquisition, we have secured a modern and flexible office building in Copenhagen in an area that is developing into a central and attractive local environment. We are looking forward to opening the doors for Visma in 2021," says CEO of KLP Eiendom Gunnar Gjørtz.
Carlsberg Byen is a new district in the south of Copenhagen city, in an area where the beer producer Carlsberg had its brewery for 160 years. The area is classified as part of Denmark's cultural heritage, where the old buildings are now being used for new purposes in combination with new residential and commercial buildings. The building KLP Eiendom buys is named after Emil Christian Hansen, a researcher employed by Carlsberg, who made revolutionary studies on the use of yeast in beer production.
KLP Eiendom owns property for over NOK 67 billion, of which more than NOK 6 billion is invested in property in Denmark.
