Skanska has divested a residential project consisting of rental apartments, senior apartments and a home for people with special needs in Malmö, Sweden. The buyer is Bantorget Hyresbostäder AB. The selling price is about SEK 300M, which will be recorded by Skanska Sweden in the Residential Development stream in the second quarter 2021. The transfer will take place in connection with completion in August 2023.
The project, developed by Skanska Hyresbostäder, is built on leasehold land and comprise about 7,200 square meters for housing, of which 68 rental apartments, 40 senior apartments, a home for people with special needs and a retail space. The variety of housing that the project offers will open the expansive area Hyllie in Malmö to new groups. Based on a social sustainability analysis, Skanska has designed the courtyard with rich greenery providing several meeting places and rooms for socializing activities.
The senior apartments will be leased to people aged 65, and over, looking for greater community belonging and an attentive environment. Among other, a common area is offered at the top of the building and a daily host will be available to help the residents with various tasks, arrange activities and act as social support function.

Construction will start in the summer of 2021 and completion will take place in stages until August 2023.
