The assets have a total lettable area of 35,000 square metres and are located in vibrant and accessible mid-town office areas of Helsinki. The central locations combined with unbeatable public transport connections make the assets very attractive to perspective tenants, for example, Pasilanraitio 5 is located adjacent to the Tripla shopping centre and certain key transit connections, Kumpulantie 3 is located in Vallila, close to Pasila, Elimäenkatu 26 is located in the heart of Vallila and Vanha Talvitie 11 is located in the fast-growing Kalasatama area which is located close to the metro station.
“The Pasila-Vallila-Kalastama commuter area is one of the largest office hubs in Helsinki. The prime location and availability of public rail transport offer plenty of opportunities to companies seeking office space. That said, many of the offices in the area are in need of upgrades. Our goal is to create attractive workplaces by modernising the spaces and improving their energy efficiency, with the ultimate aim of obtaining energy certificates for each of the assets. Overall, the assets are a great strategic fit for our fund,” says Sampsa Apajalahti, Investment Director at CapMan Real Estate.
The EUR 564 million Fund was established in 2020 and it primarily invests in office, retail, and residential real estate in the Nordic regions.
