CapMan Real Estate acquires highly visible office building in northern Stockholm area in renovation and lease-up scheme

CapMan Nordic Real Estate III Fund has agreed to acquire Sadelplatsen 1, a vacant office building in Järva Krog, Solna, from Fabege in an off-market transaction.

The 6,360 sqm property consists mainly of office and showroom space as well as a parking facility and is currently 94% vacant. CapMan is evaluating various plans for the development of the property, which, due to its flexibility, could suit many different types of tenants. Solna is one of the strongest office locations in the Stockholm region due to its supply of modern offices, proximity to central Stockholm as well as the northern Stockholm suburbs. Järva Krog has excellent access to public transport as well as the E4 motorway and is currently undergoing strong commercial and residential development, which will further improve the attractiveness of the area.

“We are very pleased with the acquisition and with the prospect of tailoring the asset to fit today’s requirements and expectations for office space. Our team has a lot of experience from similar renovation and lease-up cases in Solna. We have already initiated lease discussions and gained strong interest from several potential tenants,” says Anna Reuterskiöld, Partner and Head of CapMan Real Estate Sweden.

CapMan’s Real Estate team comprises over 40 real estate professionals in Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo. CapMan Real Estate currently manages a total of EUR 2.8 billion in real estate assets. The team was awarded UK & European Opportunistic Property Manager of the Year at the 2020 Professional Pensions Investment Awards.

CapMan Nordic Real Estate III Fund, the team’s third Nordic value-add fund, was established in September 2020 and has raised EUR 449 million to date with a target size of EUR 500 million. The acquisition is the fund’s fifth transaction.
