The Myllynkivenkuja 4 property was completed in 1987 as a newspaper printing site, and today is fully let to the international data centre company Equinix and the high-tech security company Thales. It comprises approximately 16,900 sq m of gross lettable area and 6,500 sq m of unused building right, and due to its location benefitting from excellent connectivity and superb power supply security provides attractive opportunities for expansion and further development for particularly mission-critical uses.
Rikumatti Forsberg, Director, Capital Markets, JLL Finland: “We are proud to have been able to assist TS-Yhtymä Oy in this sale. The transaction highlights the high demand for data centre focused properties in the Nordics, driven by the megatrend of digitalisation that has only accelerated during the pandemic. We also congratulate Hyperco for purchasing this high-quality property and thank both parties for the successful process.”
JLL Capital Markets acted as TS-Yhtymä Oy’s sole commercial advisor in the transaction. JLL Debt and Financial Advisory, separately mandated by the purchaser, advised the purchaser in raising debt financing for the acquisition.
