Bonnier Fastigheter dates back to 1856, when the company acquired its first property on Riddarholmen in central Stockholm. Over the years, the property portfolio has evolved, and currently comprises 16 properties in Greater Stockholm and Uppsala. Bonnier Fastigheter is a long-term property owner; eight of the properties have been in the portfolio since 1990 or earlier. The company is one of three legs of the Bonnier family's corporate holdings – the other two being media conglomerate Bonnier Group AB and investment company AB Boninvest. Initially, Bonnier Fastigheter was viewed as a buffer that could be realised in times of distress in the media industry, but since 2014, the company has been seen as one of the family's core businesses.
