Knut Rost, CEO of Diös.
It is no longer enough to ‘entice’ employees back to the office. Instead, attention must be given to the whole person and to creating work environments that allow for well-being as well as productivity. You shouldn’t need to work at home to be able to concentrate.

We are continuing to develop Haga Norra. The next step is a residential housing project.

We have worked together with Fabege on several projects in recent years and are now looking forward to the first residential housing project conducted via Birger Bostad.

The apartments will also have the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

Stefan Dahlbo, CEO
We reported positive net lettings of SEK 34m during the second quarter and of SEK 22m for the first six months of the year.

Putting so many great local artists on stage, and giving the audience at Flemingsberg Block Party the opportunity to experience them live, is really fun. Combining the stars of tomorrow with more established names is something we are truly passionate about. We look forward to continuing the collaboration regarding this dynamic and vibrant place, where there are so many young people and such a large audience interested in music.
Lotta Carlson, Business Developer at All Things Live.
“It will be incredible with the festival, and filling central Flemingsberg with people, music, culture and a belief in the future. We hope that many of the things that happen during the festival can become more permanent features in Flemingsberg, for example in a creative cluster that can develop around the Royal Swedish Opera and Royal Dramatic Theatre, which will soon open their doors in Flemingsberg, gigs on the Campus area and more meeting places for young people in the area.
Karin Lekberg, Project Manager for Flemingsberg Block Party.
Flemingsberg is one of Sweden’s biggest and also most important development projects. The long-term vision for the development project is 50,000 residents, 50,000 people working in the area and 50,000 people visiting and passing through it. Flemingsberg is being transformed from a regional centre into an international star.
Camilla Broo, Director of Huddinge Municipality.
The key aspects in the development project are collaboration, the power of experimentation and contrasts. In Flemingsberg, housing, business, academia and nature come together to create a unique dynamic that we want to strengthen even more. This initiative will give energy and a push to the development work and we hope that the festival will lead to more long-term collaborations and elements in Flemingsberg.
Stefan Dahlbo, CEO of Fabege
- The great thing about Flemingsberg Block Party is that we will highlight the local energy and everything that is going on in the area via a big festival in the heart of Flemingsberg. In the analysis we have conducted in the project on the basis of 12 years of citizen dialogues, we have identified wishes that align well with what we are now putting into practice. Campus Flemingsberg is Sweden’s eighth largest campus, with about 20,000 students, and is an important catalyst in the development of Flemingsberg.
Sara Ferlander, Senior Lecturer and Researcher at Södertörn University.
What is new and inspiring about Flemingsberg Block Party is that the organisers and participants consist of an exciting mix of both young people in Flemingsberg and more experienced festival organisers. It will have a great programme! There will also be the possibility to view the development plans for Flemingsberg in a special exhibition area.
Karin Lekberg, Project Manager for Flemingsberg Block Party.
We note that there is a high level of activity in the rental market in Stockholm with increased turnover but continued stable rent levels. Lettings are still being made at good levels but the indexation from the year-end is expected to limit future potential during renegotiations.
Stefan Dahlbo, CEO
During the start of the year, rental income and net operating income have increased, while rising interest rates have led to higher financing costs and rising yield requirements in the valuations. Our portfolio of modern properties in attractive locations and good access to capital gives us stability and the ability to take on the challenges and seize the opportunities that the market offers.
Stefan Dahlbo, CEO.
