Antilooppi has agreed to acquire nine properties in Ruoholahti, Helsinki
Antilooppi has signed an agreement to acquire a portfolio of nine properties in Ruoholahti from Sponda Oyj and its subsidiaries. The lettable area of the target portfolio is approximately 100,000 m² and it also includes more than 1,650 parking places.
Ruoholahti is one of Helsinki’s prime office submarkets and the gateway to CBD Helsinki from the western part of the metropolitan area, located only two kilometres southwest of the city centre. Ruoholahti is a busy transportation hub with a direct access to metro and several tram lines. Helsinki Central Railway Station can be reached with a 5-minute Metro ride. The Baana cycling and walking path starts from Ruoholahti and connects Ruoholahti with Töölönlahti. The Länsiväylä Highway, which starts from Ruoholahti is the main road towards west, serving more than 70,000 vehicles daily.
The portfolio is an excellent add-on to Antilooppi’s existing portfolio. After this transaction Antilooppi owns 37 properties in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area and Antilooppi will have now more excellent choices to offer for both existing and new office and retail tenants.
“Antilooppi’s plan is to further improve the quality level of the properties by improving the premises and working in close co-operation with the existing and new tenants. Further new Jätkäsaari residential area next to Ruoholahti will enable the possibility to improve the services to the residents in the area,” comments CIO Antti Savilampi
“This acquisition suits perfectly Antilooppi’s strategy to become one of the leading property owners in the Helsinki metropolitan area. We are extremely excited about the portfolio and are looking forward to develop the properties together with the tenants,” says CEO Tuomas Sahi.
Transaction is expected to take place in spring 2020, and it is subject to approval by Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority.
