PATRIZIA acquires residential development project in Sweden for €100m

PATRIZIA AG has acquired a residential development project in Malmö, Sweden, in the suburb of Hyllie from Slättö, for €100 million.

Scheduled to complete in Q4 2021, the development will deliver 427 modern residential units comprising one to four-bedroom apartments for rent.

Hyllie is a well-known residential and commercial district in the south of the city. The development is strategically located in close proximity to the Emporia Shopping Centre and benefits from excellent transport links via the nearby Hyllie railway station.

Jörg Laue, Head of Transactions for PATRIZIA in the Nordics, commented: “This is an exciting residential development project in an upcoming area of one of Sweden’s major cities. The units will be finished to a high standard and will help meet the growing demand for modern apartments in Malmö. We continue to look for opportunities to grow our exposure to the residential sector in Sweden, particularly around Stockholm, Malmö, Gothenburg.”

Johan Lagerdahl, Country Manager and Head of Asset Management for PATRIZIA in Sweden, said: “The defensive profile of the Swedish residential sector means that we will be able to deliver secure and stable income to our investors. The market is underpinned by favourable supply demand dynamics, due to a growing urban population and limited availability of suitable housing.”
