City districts

We both want and are able to be a driving force in the development of a sustainable city. In districts where we own a significant number of properties, we take responsibility for the whole picture, from acquisitions and local development plans, to measures to boost the appeal of the physical environment and social initiatives. For us, sustainable urban development is about the whole person, the whole company, the whole location. The whole time.

Our city districts

We have a presence in a limited number of districts which connects Stockholm from Arenastaden in the north to Flemingsberg in the south.

In all our city districts, we are involved in the whole development process, from planning, via projects to property management. We impose ambitious energy and climate targets right from the start, and as a major property owner, we have both an obligation and an opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint at all stages, including indirect carbon emissions in project development and travel to and from our properties. All our city districts are, and will become, important hubs, particularly for rail transport.
