CapMan Nordic Real Estate acquires an office building in a fast developing area in Helsinki

The CapMan Nordic Real Estate fund has signed an agreement to acquire a 7,800-square-metre office building locating at Hämeentie 15 in central Helsinki.

"We believe that there is a need for modern and effective office space in the fast developing Sörnäinen-Kalasatama area, where the tenants value convenience with a distinct character. We see significant value-add potential in refurbishing and leasing of the vacant premises in the property," says Juhani Erke, Partner at CapMan Real Estate and responsible for the investment.

The property is acquired from a real estate fund managed by Pohjola Kiinteistösijoitus Oy.

The focus of the €273 million CapMan Nordic Real Estate fund, established in 2013, is to acquire mainly office, retail and residential properties located in established submarkets of major Nordic cities. "KOy Helsingin Hämeentie 15" is the fund's 15th investment overall and its fourth in Finland.
