Diös acquires additional properties in Skellefteå
Diös is buying another two properties in the centre of Skellefteå, complementing the properties acquired last autumn in the same neighbourhood. This acquisition further strengthens Diös' position and presence in the centre of Skellefteå. In total, the value of the properties amounts to SEK 38 million and the total lettable area encompasses some 3,000 square metres. The seller is Nordvestor AB and transfer of ownership will take place in the second quarter of 2020.
The properties being acquired by Diös are mainly comprised of residential premises, but they also contain some office spaces. The transaction will take place in a company form and the result will be reported in the second quarter of 2020.
'We see great opportunities for growth with the current development taking place in Skellefteå, where more people are moving in, current companies can grow and new businesses are setting up. The properties we have now acquired will strengthen the neighbourhood we are already present in and enable us to further contribute to the development of Skellefteå,' says Lars-Göran Dahl, Head of Real Estate and Business Development at Diös.
'From Nordvestor's point of view, we are very happy about the deal with Diös. They are a long-term and responsible property owner, and the company has become a significant player in Skellefteå in recent years. We think it's very positive that Diös is expanding its presence in Skellefteå and thus contributing to continued growth in the town. Nordvestor is currently working to develop the neighbourhood around Citykompaniet. Today it is a popular and well-performing retail space, and we're now taking the next step in the area's development by building an indoor car park. We then plan to have new offices and homes as well as more commercial premises for retail and local services. This sale strengthens our financial position and enables continued investment in a growing Skellefteå,' says Pär Nordlund, CEO, Nordvestor Fastigheter AB.
