Alma Property Partners acquires Tikkuri, a retail center serving the Tikkurila community in Vantaa
The Tikkuri property is located in the heart of the Tikkurila district in Vantaa, Finland. The Tikkurila area has been developing quickly over the past few years supported by excellent transportation links and significant population growth. Tikkuri is located next to the Vantaa town hall and adjacent to one of the busiest railway stations in Finland. The location is 20 minutes by rail to central Helsinki and 15 minutes to Helsinki airport. The investment is the first Finnish investment in Alma’s second opportunistic fund and is made together with Mrec Investment Management.
“The Tikkurila region is one of the key neighbourhoods in the Helsinki metropolitan area. We believe that Tikkuri is well-located to capitalise on the growing local population. The general area has already benefitted from significant developments and we look forward to developing Tikkuri to its full potential as an integral part of the local community,” says Robert Landtman, Partner at Alma Property Partners.
“We are excited to work with Alma to develop this grocery-anchored asset focused on serving the neighbourhood. We believe strongly in the location and see a lot of opportunity to work with the property,” Tomi Grönlund, Managing Director at Mrec Investment Management adds.
