TAALERI PLC PRESS RELEASE 1 APRIL 2022 AT 9:00 (EEST)
Taaleri completed acquisitions of two properties for Aktia Commercial Properties special investment fund
Non‐UCITS Fund Aktia Commercial Properties, a special investment fund managed by Taaleri, completed acquisitions of a store building in Raisio and of a theater and small office space in Tikkurila, Vantaa, on March 31, 2022. The purchase prices of the properties totaled approximately EUR 15 million.
The Raisio property was built in 2016 and has a total leasable area of approximately 3,100 square meters. The property is located along the Turku bypass at Kuninkojankaari 9, near the Mylly shopping center. A geothermal system has been installed in the property. Boat Store Finland Oy will continue as a tenant in the property.
The Vantaa property is located in Tikkurila at Silkkitehtaantie 5. The building is part of a protected factory property complex in the Silkkitehdas (silk factory) block, where a total of approximately 2,500 square meters of theater and small office space has been renovated. In addition to the property, the fund acquired parking rights in the block, which also houses the geothermal center that serves the block. The seller of the property was Renor Oy, which has been responsible for the real estate development of the area.
“The acquisition of Tikkurila's Teatteri and Värjäämö facilities is a natural extension of the previously acquired Konttori building. We are very pleased to continue our good cooperation with Renor. It’s great that in this market situation we are able to continue to implement the fund's strategy with targets that also strongly support the fund's climate and sustainability goals,” says the fund's portfolio manager Jukka Sjösten.
The special investment fund Aktia Commercial Properties Fund is an open-end fund that invests in Finnish commercial properties, such as offices, commercial real estate, warehouse real estate and other business-focused real estate. The fund's portfolio management has been outsourced to Taaleri, where a 14-person team of experts manages the fund. The fund's designated portfolio managers are Jukka Sjösten and Salla Kalliola.
