Tosito’s Acquisition of Building Rights in Karlastaden And Construction Agreement


Setterwalls has advised Serneke on the transaction.

Serneke announced the sale of approximately 15,000 square meters of building rights in Karlastaden to property company Tosito, mainly for housing development. The purchase price amounts to approximately SEK 200 million, corresponding to a building rights value of approximately SEK 13,000 per square meter. The sale is expected to have a positive impact on earnings of approximately SEK 80 million in the fourth quarter.

In connection with the transaction, Serneke and Tosito will also sign a construction agreement. The construction agreement comprises two suborders, the first commencing in the first quarter of 2021 and the second in the fourth quarter of 2021. The value of the agreements totals approximately SEK 300 million, with the order amounts to be included in the quarter in which the suborder is effectuated.

The plan is to construct some 180 homes on the property, both rental and tenant-owned apartments. These will be contained in two buildings, an eight-story staircase entry block and a 17-story highrise. The homes will be constructed in accordance with the Nordic Eco label certification. The ground floors will offer commercial premises.

Karlastaden comprises some 200,000 square meters of total buildings rights, divided into eight blocks. The building rights that are now being sold cover a total area of approximately 15,000 square meters, situated in the Capella block. Serneke has previously sold building rights in the same block to Hemsö. With Serneke as the turnkey contractor, premises for a school and other community functions are currently under construction there.
