The iconic Raaden Hammas was redesigned to meet the needs of modern business life and is now known as the Accountor Tower. At the same time, the first service development in Keilaniemi was created - complete with fitness centre, grocery store, coworking facilities and the popular scenic restaurant Lucy in the Sky. The property was sold in spring 2020 to a German fund managed by DWS.
This building was renovated into school and office space for the use of Otaniemi High School and the City of Espoo. The interiors of the red-brick building were renovated to be reconfigurable, making them suitable for a wide range of uses; as spaces for quiet work, meetings, or an arena for displays and performances. The project was completed in stages during 2018–2019. The property was sold in December 2018 to the eQ Hoivakiinteistöt special investment fund.
School and office building
This architecturally striking new building was completed at Kasarminkatu 21 as business premises for Roschier, Danske Bank and Taaleri, among others. The project was inspired by law firm Roschier’s search for a new headquarters space in the city centre that could be tailored to their needs. The ideal space was found on the edge of Kasarmintori on the site of a former public works facility, that was demolished and replaced by a new building - increasing the appeal of the whole Kasarmintori area. The property was sold to an international real estate investor at the end of 2018.
This valuable property - designed by Florentin Granholm and completed in 1896 - went through a respectful and sensitive modernization and was restored to residential use. The project was completed in 2014 and sold in autumn 2015.
Helsinki City Centre
A single-tenant space was re-designed into a multi-user work and study centre that now houses the Academy of Fine Art as well as a cozy lunch restaurant. The Academy had long wrestled with air quality problems in its previous location and was in urgent need of a new base when it found a space at Park Vallila. The property was sold in spring 2015.
Purchased in 2011 in partnership with Sveafastigheter, this property had previously operated as offices for the teleoperator Sonera. The building was renovated and leased to the City of Helsinki in 2013. The property received a LEED gold certificate when development was complete. The building was sold at the end of 2013.
Acquired in partnership with YIT in 2010, this previously under-utilised property located at Ruoholahdenkatu 23 was fully renovated to better serve the needs of its tenants. It was also expanded by 1,300 square metres. The property received a LEED gold certificate on completion. Ruoholahdenkatu 23 was sold in December 2012 to Cordea Savills AB.
The Sturenkatu 21 property was purchased together with YIT in 2006. Undergoing extensive refurbishment, the building was completely remodeled into a modern and distinctive office and became the headquarters for international brand Unilever. As a protected property, development work was carried out in close partnership with the Finnish Heritage Agency. Sturenkatu 21 was sold in the spring of 2007 to Wardburg-Henderson.
A commercial portfolio was established in late 2006 together with Sveafastigheter. The portfolio included 154 grocery stores throughout Finland, with four different retail space portfolios combined to form a single entity. Properties were developed, extensive leasing operations were carried out and hundreds of leases were renewed. The retail portfolio was sold in December 2007 to ERIV II, a fund managed by AXA REIM.
