Steen & Strøm is a Scandinavian
real estatecompany that owns and operates 52 shopping centres in Norway, Swedenand Denmark. In 2006 the shopping centers had 3,300 lessees with total revenue of about NOK 40 billion.
The company was founded in 1797 when Samuel Strøm started a wine shop and
general storein Oslo. Emil Steen became a partner in 1856, and the name Steen & Strøm was established. In 1874 the company built the first department storein Norway, but it was destroyed in a fire in 1929. By 1930 a brand new store had been rebuilt, with architectural inspiration from Paris. In 1991 Agora Drift AS took over the management of Steen & Strøm, as well as five other shopping centres and three hotels, and started expanding.
In July 1994 the company was listed on the
Oslo Stock Exchange, but delisted again in September 2007 after Stein Erik Hagenhad bought out the other owners, at the time Canica(49,9%), Storebrand(12.9%), Orkla (10.3%), Stein Erik Hagen(5.9%) and Varner-Gruppen(5.5%). In 2008 the company was sold for NOK 21.9 billion to Klépierre(56.1%) and ABP Pension Fund(43.9%).
