Castellum ready to invest in Stockholm with new office buildings and attractive courtyards
After successful renovation of the historic property on Torsgatan 22-30, Castellum is ready for the next stage in the renewal of the entire block by planning for three office buildings with modern workplaces and activities that attract visitors on evenings and weekends.
-Planning process has begun for the investment estimated at approximately SEK 500 million, which would mean that we will have invested close to 2 SEK billion in this fantastic neighborhood. These are strategically sound investments and letting is going well despite the pandemic, says Martin Bjöörn, CEO of Castellum Region Stockholm-Norr.
The detailed plan is being processed and will be out for public consultation later this year. The starting point for Castellum's work in line with city’s vision is to provide more modern workplaces in the city center, preferably on existing "gaps". Behind the facade towards Torsgatan, the block has two courtyards large enough to build on, and far too unused to stand empty. By using part of the courtyards to build three office buildings, Castellum wants to add both more workplaces and businesses that increase the area's appeal. The goal is to enhance Torsgatan further, but also to make Hälsobrunnsgatan a safe and pleasant city street with nice houses and small squares.
The ambition is for vibrant spaces, available to the public both towards Torsgatan and on the new street level locations towards Hälsobrunnsgatan. With functions such as a restaurant, café, padel court, outdoor gym and outdoor workplaces, a safer environment is created that more people want to stay in.
-Since we mainly build on our own undeveloped plots, we can achieve good profitability. The plans are still at an early stage, but I have high hopes for another successful investment in central Stockholm, says Martin Bjöörn.
