TAALERI PLC PRESS RELEASE 31 MARCH 2022 AT 9:00 (EEST)
Taaleri completed acquisitions of two residential properties in Vantaa and Turku for Aktia Residential special investment fund
Aktia Residential Fund , a special investment fund managed by Taaleri, has purchased 97 rental apartments in Pakkala, Vantaa, and agreed to purchase 126 rental apartments in the heart of Turku in two separate transactions completed on March 30, 2022. The purchase prices of the properties totaled almost EUR 50 million.
The Vantaa property consists of four buildings built in 1999 with a total of 97 apartments and approximately 6,300 square meters of leasable area. The property is located at Käräjäkuja 1, less than a kilometer from the Jumbo shopping center. The property underwent a comprehensive energy renovation in 2021. Heating was changed from district heating to geothermal energy, in addition to which the property generates electricity from its own solar power plant. The whole is supported by heat recovery, which increases the energy savings of the property. The seller was Varma Mutual Pension Insurance Company.
The property in Turku is a so-called conversion project where an office building is converted into a residential building. 126 new rental apartments will be built in Yliopistonkatu 34 in the city center. The leasable area of the property is about 3,200 square meters. The project will be completed in the late summer of 2022, when ownership will be transferred to the Aktia Residential Fund . The seller was AKR Tuotto Ky, which is managed by Auratum Real Estate Ltd.
“The early part of 2022 has continued to be buoyant in the real estate market, and we are pleased to have agreed to acquire two significant properties for the fund. In this way, we will continue to strongly implement the fund's strategy,” says Salla Kalliola from Taaleri Real Estate, the fund's portfolio manager.
