PFA Pension ("PFA") has acquired half of the area development company Gartnerbyen P/S. The area development company together with the City of Odense will be in charge of developing an all new district in Odense, known as Gartnerbyen.
Gartnerbyen is located in the area that was once the headquarters of the gardening business GASA, 1.5 km from Odense city centre. The green district close to the city is expected to be completed in 8 years and to comprise buildings of a total of 140,000 m2 in the form of rental and owner-occupied properties, grocers, health centre, hotel and other businesses.
PFA has also acquired 2 of the building plots in the district and entered into a turnkey contract with the contractor H. Skjøde Knudsen A/S concerning the construction of 156 rental properties on the plots. Some of them will be senior housing.
Accura assisted PFA in the transaction.
