Sustainability in Arenastaden

Arenastaden has high ambitions when it comes to sustainability. The aim is to create an attractive and long-term sustainable district that people enjoy spending time in.

All the office buildings built in the area and the Mall of Scandinavia are environmentally certified. In Arenastaden, all the electricity that is purchased for the office buildings is generated by wind turbines, and all the district heating and district cooling networks carry the Good Environmental Choice label. 

In June 2019, we carried out an extensive travel habits survey among the roughly 22,000 employees for whom Arenastaden is a workplace. The results of the survey reveal that an impressive 52 percent of employees travel to and from their workplaces in Arenastaden in Solna using public transport, and that a further 20 percent cycle or walk. According to associate professor Markus Robèrt at SEED, Strategic Sustainability Studies at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, this is the highest recorded result for sustainable travel to date in the ten districts that were analysed.

Vacant premises

It would be easy to believe that the city district is finished, but in fact we are only halfway so far. 250,000 square metres of building rights still remain to be developed. Going forwards, the focus will be on completing the epic big picture with smaller, but no less important, stakeholders and touches. The aim is to create a good mix of building types, where life continues even after working hours.

Yellow line to Arenastaden

The metro is to be extended with the addition of a new line from Odenplan to Arenastaden. This Yellow Line will join up with the Green Line’s track at Odenplan. Passengers will thus be able to travel from Arenastaden to the central station and also further south without having to change trains at Odenplan. Residents of the southern parts of Stockholm will be able to travel directly to Hagastaden, Södra Hagalund and Arenastaden using the Yellow Line.

More information about Yellow Line is available on Region Stockholm’s website.

Life between the buildings

When we develop our districts, we want to create the best possible place for the people living and working there. It's important that they are lively, pleasant, and safe - both before, during, and after our construction projects. Therefore, we think far beyond the properties and work to strengthen life between the buildings, create safe meeting places, services, and features that get people talking. We want to create human, playful, diverse, and surprising urban environments - with the goal that you should feel good here!
