JM has signed an agreement with Senaatti-kiinteistöt to acquire property in Puustellinkallio in Leppävaara, Espoo. The transaction is worth SEK 160 m, with occupancy and payment planned for 2017.
The property comprises a 5.8 hectare area. Amongst other things, the Keskuspuiston ammattiopisto school (previously the Arla-instituutti) is found on the property at present. JM is planning to develop an entirely new residential area consisting of approximately 400 residential units.
"It is exciting and invigorating that we have successfully acquired property where we can take a comprehensive approach and develop an entirely new residential area. The property has a park, for example, that we are going to utilize and incorporate as a natural part of the future residential area. The acquisition is in line with our long-term strategy," says Markus Heino, CEO of JM Suomi Oy.
