Niam acquires two residential projects in Denmark

Niam and Milton Huse have entered into an agreement for the construction and purchase of two residential projects, comprising 244 homes. The majority of the homes are located in Haslev, central Zealand, and the rest are located in Lyndelse, just south of Odense, Funen.

The Haslev homes will be a part of a new large residential area, where the ambition is to create an attractive and affordable residential area. Playgrounds and a large activity house are being built in the area, which will be used for community-focused activities. There is also an option to convert some of the units to senior living houses in order for future tenants to stay in their homes, even if a need for care arises.

Upon completion, the projects will have an environmental certification according to DGNB Silver.

Michael Berthelsen, Country Manager Denmark, says, “We are very pleased to be collaborating with Milton Huse on these two residential projects, which will be a great addition to our existing portfolio. Both projects are within short commuting distance to each cities’ large university hospitals, and we believe that, among others, hospital employees will be interested in these energy-friendly quality housing, located close to nature at an affordable rent.”

Milton Huse expects the project to start end of 2021, with the first round of homes to be completed in early 2023. Construction is expected to be finalized during the first quarter of 2025.

Erik Rehnquist, CEO and owner of Milton Huse, says, ”We are very pleased with the process with Niam, and look forward to the future collaboration. Niam is very pragmatic in their approach, with a strong focus on the tenants, offering common facility, outside area with a ​​playground and a consistent focus on sustainability. This is completely in line with Milton House's own values.”

With this transaction, Niam is increasing its presence in the Danish residential rental market and their current portfolio consists of approximately 1,650 rental apartments.
