NIB funds sustainable office buildings owned by Vacse in Sweden

NIB and the Swedish real estate company Vacse AB (publ) have agreed on a SEK 400 million (EUR 38 million) loan to finance two new BREEAM-certified office buildings in Sweden.

The 10-year-maturity loan has been provided to finance the development and the construction of two multi-tenant office buildings, one located in Jönköping and another in Sollentuna, just north of Stockholm. Upon their completion, both properties shall be eligible for certification under the BREEAM Excellent standard for green buildings.

The Sollentuna-based multi-tenant court building, 'Färgskrapan', will have a total leasable area of approximately 15,000 square metres. The property will host the extension to the Attunda District Court, a specialised high security District Court, as well as offices rented by the Swedish National Courts Administration (Domstolsverket). In addition, part of ‘Färgskrapan’ will be rented to other tenants. The building is expected to be ready in spring 2020.

The new joint head office of the Swedish Board of Agriculture (Jordbruksverket) and the Swedish Forest Agency (Skogsstyrelsen) is being built in Jönköping. The property will comprise an office space of approximately 15,000 square metres. The building is expected to be completed in early 2021.
