50,000 new workspaces and homes and a denser urban environment than in the inner city. That’s the vision for the new Flemingsberg district, which will create greater balance in the region and allow more Stockholmers to live closer to work.
One of Sweden’s largest development projects is about to be launched. The new district of Flemingsberg, or to give it its working name South Business District, will see Fabege as one of the lead operators alongside Huddinge municipality.
The initiative will involve the development of a brand new district next to the Flemingsberg station area. As well as a new business and research hub close to the current university and research facilities, there will also be construction of homes, shops, entertainment experiences and restaurants in a mixed-used development that will revitalise the area both in the daytime and the evening.
First business hub south of Stockholm
There are currently a number of similar districts north of Stockholm, but as yet none in the southern areas of the region. For many companies, a location south of the city offers significant advantages, such as better communications to and from business partners and customers in the southern counties and simpler train journeys to Gothenburg and Malmö.
“We want to work alongside other companies to develop Flemingsberg from a regional centre into a dynamic international star,” says Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President at Fabege.
