Savills IM sells Retail Park asset in Finland to OP-Vuokratuotto

25 January 2017

Savills Investment Management ("Savills IM"), the international real estate manager, has sold a car trade-focused retail park in Finland on behalf of its retail focused Nordic Fund I (the ‘Fund’).

The close ended fund is approaching its end of life and has one remaining asset to sell, having proactively initiated an early sales programme given the strong demand for Core Plus assets in 2016.

The Auto Airport retail park, close to Vantaa Airport in Helsinki and covering a lettable area of 17,800 sq m, was sold to OP-Vuokratuotto. The warehouse has been managed for 10 years by Savills IM and has ALD Automotive, MetroAuto and Teboil as its main tenants.

Peter Broström, Head of Nordics at Savills IM, commented:

“Auto Airport is now a highly desirable Core Plus asset following completion of our management programme. In 2016 we secured a total of 56% of its rental income for the next five years through two new lease extensions."


“It has been under our management for the last 10 years and we are very pleased to hand over the property to a seller such as OP-Vuokratuotto. The property has been a strong investment in our Fund and has provided sound returns to our investors.”
