Bech-Bruun wins important case for Metroselskabet I/S
The Municipality of Copenhagen had filed a compensation claim in the amount of DKK 7.7 million against Metroselskabet I/S in connection with the expropriation of the bus terminal building at Rådhuspladsen. Metroselskabet denied liability.
The Danish Expropriation Committee initially found in favour of Metroselskabet on the ground that the building was of no value to the Municipality of Copenhagen. The Danish Valuation Commission upheld that decision, based on another ground.
The Valuation Commission's decision relies primarily on the finding that the Municipality of Copenhagen is not entitled to compensation for the building, as the Danish state, the Municipality of Copenhagen and the Municipality of Frederiksberg entered into an agreement concerning the establishment of the city circle metro line, Cityringen.
The decision is of significant importance to Metroselskabet.
