CapMan Nordic Real Estate fund has agreed to sell The English School property in Älvsjö, Southern Stockholm following its recent conversion of the building from office to school use. The buyer is Fastighets AB Stenvalvet, a Swedish property company owned by pension funds. Stenvalvet owns and develops properties for public use.
CapMan Real Estate originally invested in the vacant 7,930 square-meter office property in August 2015 in order to convert the building into modern school premises for Internationella Engelska Skolan (IES), which signed a long-term lease for the property. The conversion work was finalised as originally scheduled and the school opened its doors in August this year.
“Älvsjö is a fast growing suburb with high demand for services and our school project has generated great interest from both pupils and their families. Investor interest has also been very strong. We are very happy about the smooth collaboration we have enjoyed with IES in Älvsjö and look forward to continuing our excellent relationship on other future projects,” comments Ed Williams, Senior Partner at CapMan Real Estate.
The English School is the fourth exit of the CapMan Nordic Real Estate fund. The focus of the €273 million fund is to acquire mainly office, retail and residential properties located in established submarkets of major Nordic cities. The fund was established in 2013.
