Hemfosa is divesting five residential properties, which also include certain commercial operations, in Gävle to M2 Gruppen. The transaction will contribute to the continued streamlining of the property portfolio according to the strategy of focusing on community service properties.
Hemfosa has signed an agreement to divest the residential properties Gävle Norr 22:3, Norr 34:2, Norr 35:1, 35:4 and Norr 36:1, totaling 14,256 sqm of leasable area at an underlying property value of MSEK 170.
