Wihlborgs building new property for Region Skåne
Wihlborgs has won a tender for a transportation facility for Region Skåne. The lease that has just been signed means that Wihlborgs will build a facility of 2,300 m² with adjacent parking lots and logistics premises.
The lease is for premises for Skånetransport, which is responsible for Region Skåne’s collected fleet of 780 vehicles and provides transportation between the organisation’s different entities in Skåne. The new facilities have a location that will reduce the transportation’s environmental impact through its proximity to Malmö and Lund as well as the major road network with access roads to the E6, E20 and E22.
“Region Skåne is one of our most important tenants, and we are of course pleased to be able to meet their need for a modern, functional transportation facility. Here they’ll have excellent connections that will boost their effectiveness and provide easy access to their most important nodes,” says Ulrika Hallengren, CEO of Wihlborgs Fastigheter.
The property is being constructed at the Kirseberg 31:53 property in Segevång, Malmö, and includes 920 m² of office space and changing rooms as well as a distribution center and workshop of 1,340 m². Region Skåne is renting the entire 11,000 m² site on a ten-year lease. The investment is estimated to amount to SEK 58 million. Construction will begin in the second quarter of 2019 and occupancy is planned for the third quarter of 2020.
