Kungsleden divests properties with potential for residential development in Gothenburg

Kungsleden has signed an agreement to divest the properties Forsåker 1:75, 1:164, 1:225 and 1:257 in Forsåker, Mölndal. The buyer is Ikano Bostad.

Kungsleden has signed an agreement with the residential developer Ikano Bostad to divest the properties Forsåker 1:75, 1:164, 1: 225 and 1:257 in Mölndal. Kungsleden has started a zoning plan process to transform the use of the properties into residential purposes. The properties have, at this time, a leasable area of ​​21,109 sqm industrial/warehouse and the aim of the new zoning plan will include at least 80,000 sqm of residential development rights.

“We have identified an extensive residential development potential in Kungsleden's property portfolio and we are very pleased that we are now beginning to realize this potential,” says Ylva Sarby Westman, Deputy CEO and Chief Investment Officer at Kungsleden.

Ikano Bostad will pay an initial purchase price of SEK 200 million. The transaction will then give rise to an initial profit effect for Kungsleden of SEK 13 million. Ikano Bostad will subsequently pay an additional purchase price of SEK 23 million in conjunction with consultations and another additional purchase price for the residential development rights that have been created when the zoning plan has gained legal force. The second additional purchase price will amount to SEK 70 million before transaction costs if the aim of creating 80,000 sqm residential development rights is achieved. The zoning plan is expected to obtain legal force in the first half of 2020.

Ikano Bostad will get access to the properties during the first quarter of 2017.
