“The lease market remains strong,” says Anders Jarl, CEO of Wihlborgs Fastigheter. “During the period we signed new lease agreements to the value of SEK 60 million/year (61) while, at the same time, notice of termination of agreements stayed at 42 (33). This means that we still have a positive net lease level of 18 million (28).”

“There’s a lot going on in the Öresund region,” continued Anders Jarl. “Both Denmark and Germany have now given the go-ahead for the bridge across the Fehmarn Belt. This will make it possible to travel by road directly to the Continent in 2018. And the anticipated decision to locate ESS in Lund, together with the Max lab IV present a very interesting future for Wihlborgs,” concluded Anders Jarl.
