"We are extremely happy to have exceeded the objectives of our value-add strategy for this asset well ahead of time. During our ownership, we have raised the occupancy rate from 70% to 93% and re-negotiated leases for almost 4,000 sqm. In addition, we have made significant technical and operational improvements in the building. Due to its convenient location and appealing attributes, Solna Strand is currently attracting both occupants and investors and the timing for us to sell the property is excellent" comments Ed Williams, Senior Partner at CapMan Real Estate.
