K-Fastigheter commences largest project to date - constructing an additional 192 apartments in Gothenburg
K-Fast Holding AB has secured building permits for 192 apartments at the Sävenäs 131:13 property in Gothenburg. The company will be initiating detailed planning immediately and tenants are expected to start moving in during the fourth quarter of 2022.
In July 2019, K-Fast Holding AB (“K-Fastigheter”), an active and committed landlord offering attractive homes in southwestern Sweden announced that it was acquiring the Sävenäs 131:13 property, which is located on Smörslottsgatan in Gothenburg. Today, K-Fastigheter has obtained building permits and secured the financial conditions for the project with the signing of contractor agreements. This means that K-Fastigheter is able to commence its largest individual project to date, including construction of the Group’s Lateral Low-Rise concept buildings with 192 apartments and a connecting underground garage with 201 parking spaces. The apartments will have a total 12,257 square metres of living space, with a 5,700 square-metre garage. The garage will also be used by tenants of the adjacent Sävenäs 131:12 property that K-Fastigheter already owns and where construction of 103 rental apartments and a shop is already in progress.
Following the completion of Sävenäs 131:12 during the fourth quarter of 2021 and of Sävenäs 131:13 during fourth quarter 2022, K-Fastigheter will be able to offer a total of 295 homes, a commercial space and 201 parking spaces on Smörslottsgatan in Gothenburg. The combined rental value is estimated at approximately SEK 40 million, of which about SEK 28 million is attributable to Sävenäs 131:13. The combined total anticipated project returns amounts to approximately SEK 275 million, of which SEK 193 million is attributable to Sävenäs 131:13, of which SEK 38 million will be reported in connection with the start of the project in first quarter of 2020.
“It is very gratifying that we are now getting started with the Sävenäs 131:13 project, K-Fastigheter’s largest individual project to date. Together with the neighbouring property, we will have a large volume at an attractive address. Gothenburg and the Västra Götaland region are areas assessed by K-Fastigheter to offer substantial potential in the future. We recently signed an agreement to acquire land for the construction of 600 homes in Borås and I look forward to further developing K-Fastigheter’s property portfolio with additional attractive residential areas in western Sweden,” says Jacob Karlsson, CEO of K-Fast Holding AB.
