Borenius advised Technopolis, the listed real estate company, in its EUR 77.5 million acquisition of the Falcon Business Park in Espoo, Finland, from a fund managed by Aberdeen Asset Management, the global investment management group. Technopolis plans to integrate Falcon and Technopolis Innopoli campus into a single 60,800 sqm campus with a shared infrastructure, property management and services.
