Projects at Swedavia.
Passenger volume at Stockholm Arlanda is growing year after year. Between 2013 and 2014 alone, the increase was almost two million. With the Stockholm region also expanding, Airport City Stockholm, which is now taking shape, will be the new hub between Stockholm, Uppsala and the rest of the world.
Over the past three years, Stockholm has had record passenger growth, and in 2014 almost 25 million people flew via the airport.
- In 2040 passenger volume is expected to grow to almost 40 million, which is an average annual increase of about 2 per cent.
- In 2043 almost 50,000 people are expected to work in the new office city.
A new office world for a modern lifestyle
A new office world for a modern lifestyle – with the new Office One, Swedavia opens the doors to a new office world at Stockholm Arlanda. Green courtyards, modern technology and flexible offices are keywords that describe the ambitions of Office One.
The need to exercise, run errands and get a coffee and something to eat with friends has also driven the development of well-functioning supplementary services, which will continue to expand. On site are a spa, gym, running track and ski trail, dry cleaner’s and restaurants. And of course parking isn’t a problem.
SkyCity is also in an early phase of developing a wonderful range of shopping options. Even now, people can shop for most things within walking distance, and the offering is constantly growing. This is all in order to make everyday life easier for the people who work here.
Perfect for people with operations at Stockholm Arlanda
If you have operations at Stockholm Arlanda, you are close to the terminals, close to customers and to day-to-day activities. You also save time and money on travel.
There are many advantages to being an integrated part of the airport if you have operations at Stockholm Arlanda. You can walk from your office in SkyCity to any terminal in under 10 minutes. There is no better location closer to the terminals. You are close to your customers and can feel the pulse of everyday operations.Save time and money
Most operations have a growing need for travel, a trend that drives the investments now being made at Airport City. Modern offices immediately adjacent to the airport are now being offered, all in order to make it easier for business travellers who fly a great deal.
Along with the convenience, it is also possible for both you and your customers to save time.
Stockholm Arlanda Airport will be the leading airport in Scandinavia. Swedavia is now investing billions of Swedish kronor to meet the continued growth in passengers, and construction is already under way.
Alongside the development of the airport, Swedavia is developing a new district immediately adjacent to the airport, where the new hotel is being built. The hotel will be the largest airport hotel in the Nordic countries and will be operated by Nordic Choice Hotels. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2020 and ready for hotel guests to check in.
The new hotel is being built immediately adjacent to the terminals and Sky City, with its wide range of shops and restaurants. The hotel will be a modern alternative to business hotels at the airport and offer everyday luxury.
Stockholm Arlanda will have a true hotel rebel to offer its passengers with this Comfort Hotel. The chain has done away with all unnecessary details and instead focuses on good service, urbane, social spaces and a nice mix of both business and leisure passengers. The hotel will have a combined lobby and lounge, two restaurants and a sky bar with a view of aircraft taking off and landing.
Airport City Stockholm
Airport City covers about 800 hectares. Together the three partners have set out a vision to lead the Airport City development.
The Stockholm region is growing, and so too is commerce. More and more businesses need new areas to set up operations in. At the same time, there is a desire to concentrate operations in well-developed corporate parks with good services and access.
Swedavia, the Municipality of Sigtuna and Arlandastad Holding have together set out a vision: create a modern airport city with a vibrant city centre and attractive workplaces, in a location that offers exceptional access to the region, Sweden and the world.
A joint strategy has also been devised for building Airport City, a clear indication of the three partners’ shared drive and a tool for quickly achieving this vision.
Perfect location with nearby access to the rest of the world
It is hard to beat the location of Airport City Stockholm: adjacent to the largest airport in Sweden, between Stockholm and Uppsala, the growing city offers nearby access to railways, roads, air travel and the rest of the world. Some 20,000 people already work here, 200 companies have set up operations at the airport and over 22,5 million travellers passed through the area in 2014.
The objective of the new development is to be sustainable, commercial, nearby, urban and environmentally sound, which makes Airport City Stockholm the only urban development project of its kind in the world.
Airport City districts
Airport City will consist of six districts, each with its own special purpose. The first office complex to be built in the city centre is SkyCity Office One.
1. SkyCity: the city centre, which will give people a sense that they are already in the Stockholm city centre
2. Park City: airport entrance, a green park linking the area with other parts of Airport City
3. DriveLAB Stockholm: knowledge cluster for developing the automotive industry of the future
4. Märsta Business Park: established corporate park with good services which is closely integrated with the town of Märsta.
5. Cargo City – Cargo and logistics at the airport: located adjacent to the airport with a focus on cargo and logistics.
6. Logistic Center – Rosersberg Logistik along Route E4: logistics hub with warehouses and extensive parking and transport areas.
Airport City Gothenburg
The first shovels have hit the ground for what will be western Sweden’s first Airport City. This will be the location for logistics operations, commercial activities, attractions and retail offerings, businesses and offices, and hotel and conference facilities. Over two million square metres of space is available.
All roads lead to Airport City
The airport city now taking shape is located where all roads come together. Since it is being built adjacent to Göteborg Landvetter Airport, it will be a port to Scandinavia.
High-speed rail between the two biggest cities in western Sweden
Construction is planned for a 60 km-long two-track high-speed railway between Borås and Gothenburg. The Gothenburg-Borås route is also a link to the new main line between Stockholm and Gothenburg via Jönköping.
Quick, convenient and environmentally friendly
The new railway between Gothenburg and Borås will pass through a tunnel under Göteborg Landvetter Airport. It will be easy for passengers to get from an underground station to the departure and arrival halls via a lift or escalator – a great environmentally-friendly alternative for getting to and from the airport.
The rail network throughout the region can be developed
One essential requirement for the new railway between Gothenburg and Borås is the West Link, a new 8 km-long commuter rail link through Gothenburg, largely through tunnels. With the West Link, the rail network throughout the region can be developed. More people will be able to commute more quickly and conveniently with fewer transfers.
1.5 million visitors in the future
Some 1,200,000 people live within 40 minutes of Airport City. That number is expected to grow to 1,750,000 by 2030. And every person is a potential visitor to Airport City, whether for work or leisure.
Via Stockholm Arlanda Airport, 250,000 tonnes of cargo is carried by air per year. DHL, FedEx, Korean Air Cargo, TNT, Turkish Airlines Cargo, UPS och JetPak are some examples of the major players which are already established here.
The Stockholm region’s growth combined with the new Cargo City makes this one of the most unique and interesting sites for cargo and logistics businesses in Scandinavia.
Cargo City – 150 000 square meters
The new Cargo City is approximately 150,000 square metres of cargo and logistics buildings in the southern part of the airport. Security of of course important and therefore the area is therefore designed to meet the needs of both today and tomorrow.
Cargo City will be placed within a Freight Zone which means that all goods that are transported into the area are controlled in accordance with future regulations from, for example, the U.S. aviation authority.
