Construction City Eiendom AS owns an attractive plot of land at Ulven, which will be used to site the Construction City industry cluster that will bring together the construction, civil engineering and property industry in Norway. A usable floor area of 85,000 has been planned for the property and the framework application for the property project was submitted to the municipality of Oslo this week.
OBOS, AF Gruppen and Betonmast aim to move their head offices to the area, with the relocation scheduled for 2024.
“We are very happy to enter into an agreement concerning the plot where our new head offices will be established. The ambition is for Construction City to offer the office solutions of the future whilst also being an attractive venue for learning and development. By bringing the industry together, we will contribute to raising overall competitiveness and will involve various industry players, whether they are traditionally competitors, partners or educational institutions,” says Morten Grongstad, CEO of AF Gruppen.
The transaction is based around a gross plot value estimated at MNOK 444.5, with AF and Betonmast owning a 30% stake in the company. AF Gruppen’s total cash outlay for the transaction has been estimated at MNOK 63.5. The share transfer will take place on 1 September 2020.
