“Castellum once again records strong financial results and robust growth figures”, summarizes Castellum CEO Henrik Saxborn. “Net leasing is at record highs – both for our new development projects as well as our existing portfolio. This has been made possible by a strong and stable rental market and amazing efforts by all our employees”.

“I’m still inclined toward being positive”, continues Saxborn. “Sustained high activity in our projects, the year’s high leasing rate, repositioning of the portfolio, and synergy effects on the cost side. These all indicate great promise for the future – provided that no dramatic external events disrupt the picture.”
