The 19,900 m2 mixed-use scheme is located on the island of Lidingö, 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of Stockholm. The centre serves as the dominant convenience destination on the Lidingö island and comprises 42 tenants, anchored by Coop, Systembolaget, H&M, Dressmann and Lindex. The centre also has offices, a gym, a police station, a district health centre and a dental practice.
James Raynor, Chief Executive, Grosvenor Europe, comments: “Sweden is a top performer in European markets and continues to offer a solid growth outlook. We see great potential in retail-led mixed-use assets in the Stockholm region, particularly where there is opportunity to add value through the increase of the food and beverage and leisure offer, or through the introduction of residential in some cases.
“Lidingö is an exciting opportunity for Grosvenor to grow its position in the Nordics and it will enable us to continue to implement activity that will deliver positive commercial and social benefit.”
Lidingö Centrum is Grosvenor’s first wholly owned shopping centre in Sweden since entering the market in 2011. The acquisition complements Grosvenor’s existing portfolio, held in investment vehicles, including four town centre retail schemes in the Stockholm region, and one in Malmö.
Grosvenor was advised by Allié Law, Cederquist, Gardiner & Theobald and KPMG, while Rockspring was advised by JLL.
