The acquisition comprises approximately 31,000m2 across four properties plus a multi-storey car park of 9,000m2 with associated residential building rights, and two of the properties are new constructions. Annual rental value amounts to SEK 57 million and the occupancy rate is at 91 per cent. The average duration of contract is 3.8 years and among the largest tenants are ICA, Tyréns and Systembolaget. These centrally located properties contain offices, residences and urban services and are close to Dios’ current stock of properties in Skellefteå. The transaction will be done in a company form and the result will be reported in the first quarter of 2022.

“Skellefteå is a city of major growth where we want a greater presence. This acquisition complements and strengthens our current offering. We see value-adding potential in the portfolio through utilization of the residential building rights, economies of scale in management and rental development,” says Annie Franzon, Transactions Manager, Diös.

“This deal enables us to invest in new property projects and thus contribute to Skellefteå's continued development. We have great confidence in Diös and their plans of development for Skellefteå as a city and wish them the best of luck on their growth journey,” says Pär Nordlund, CEO, Nordvestor Fastigheter.
