Hartwall Capital buys the Lampa house in central Helsinki

The Finnish family-owned investment company Hartwall Capital Ltd has today bought the Lampa house in central Helsinki from Hotelli Helena Oy’s bankruptcy estate.

Hartwall Capital intends to open the property’s street level for the public and to use the office space of the property for the company´s business operations. Remaining commercial and office space will be offered for rent.

The objective is to renovate and restore the building with respect for its cultural and historic background. Hartwall Capital also wants to participate in responsible development and revitalization of the important historic area of central Helsinki in accordance with the objectives of the City of Helsinki.

Renovation of the property will start in the summer of 2012 and is expected to be completed during the summer of 2013.

Bertel Langenskiöld, Managing Director, said: “In 1836, the beverage company Hartwall started its business operations in the same quarters in the Sederholm House. With our roots in the City of Helsinki and with Helsinki always having played an important role in the history of the company, we have a natural interest in participating in the development of this historic part of Helsinki.”
