Katja Holmström, Senior Portfolio Manager at TH Real Estate, comments: "We are pleased to welcome Muji as a key tenant at Kamppi Shopping Centre. We trust that Muji’s flagship store will add to Kamppi’s well diversified tenant mix and support us to further develop the shopping centre, keeping it the preferred shopping destination in the Helsinki Metropolitan area. The Muji pop-up store, which is currently open, has been a great success so far and it gives us something extra for the Christmas sales."

The fund targets income-producing properties in 'future-proof' cities across Europe.
