- “During the period we renegotiated a volume of SEK 219m, with an average increase of 30 per cent. It is clear evidence of the strong trend on Stockholm’s office market. This should be considered in light of the fact that in renegotiations, we offer existing customers a discount on prevailing market rents. August saw the launch of our forthcoming project in Flemingsberg, which will involve significant sums being invested in a few years. Proximity to the best rail connections in southern Stockholm, the substantial area of available land and Huddinge Municipality’s dynamic approach are key factors that mean we are looking forward with great confidence to working together alongside other parties to develop the area,” commented Christian Hermelin, CEO

Market outlook
- ” Rising rental income, efficient property management and lower interest expenses led to a 25 per cent rise in profit from property management. Persistent value growth, primarily via projects and increased rent levels, also contributed to the strong performance. Although a slow down in the economy is getting closer, Stockholm is experiencing persistent growth. This offers us favourable conditions for continuing with our growth We see plenty of good opportunities to continue with the development of attractive offices in all our districts”, says Christian Hermelin, CEO.
