Citycon has signed an agreement to sell the non-core shopping centre Strömpilen in Umeå to Niam. The shopping centre covers 27,000 sq.m. of gross leasable area and the purchase price amounts to approximately EUR 39 million which is slightly below the IFRS fair value for the shopping centre. The transaction is expected to close in October.
“The sale of Strömpilen is a natural step in our strategy to refine our portfolio to major Nordic cities, focusing on grocery-anchored shopping centres in urban crosspoints,” says Nils Styf, Chief Investment Officer at Citycon.
Citycon has been an active owner and manager of the shopping centre since 2007.
