Kungsleden acquires house for elderly living The property company Kungsleden AB (publ) has through Hemsö Äldreboende AB, a joint venture with Catella, acquired the property Jakobsberg 34:6 in Järfälla. The property is used for elderly living and is let to the municipality on a 20 year lease period. The property is totally rebuilt and refurbished during 2002 and contains 7000 sqm of modern elderly living with a yearly income including interest subsidy, of MSEK 11,8. The purchase price is MSEK 130. - The result of our efforts on the market for elderly living has been very positive. To be able to acquire another modern property for elderly living with a strong tenant on a long lease strengthens the low risk without lowering the yield goal that we have in our elderly living portfolio, says Jens Engwall, CEO of Kungsleden.
