SM& client Skanska USA was featured the Wall Street Journal article “Swedish Builder Puts Its Hooks in U.S. Office Market.” Reporter Eliot Brown painted Skanska’s Commercial Development business as a front-runner in the U.S. office space market after the company recently sold three projects for $350 million. Skanska USA CEO Mike McNally said the company’s success is due to “a little bit of smarts, a little bit of luck,” as well as Skanska’s strong balance sheet, which allows them to self-finance projects. Mats Johansson, president of Skanska USA’s Commercial Development arm, highlighted the projects Skanska has in the pipeline now, including four projects with more than 1.2 million square feet of office space. Skanska’s most recent success came in December when it sold its 150 Second Street property in Cambridge for $94.5 million.
