It is not often that this type of object and opportunity comes out on the market, which has also been reflected in the strong interest for Kungsgatan 9l. We are really happy that it will be together with Convendum that we will continue to refine both Kungsgatan and this jewel.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Deputy CEO and Director of Business Development
We’re getting an increasing number of enquiries from investors on the equity market about our strategy and our objectives in the area of sustainability. CICERO’s opinion is a testament to the fact that we’re on the right track and strengthens our resolve to contribute towards achieving the goals set out in the Paris Agreement
Åsa Bergström, CFO
The results reveal that pursuing sustainable operations is clearly profitable. We want to make a positive contribution to the long-term sustainable development of the Stockholm region, and Fabege has ambitious targets both for properties and customer offerings. We have come a long way, but we also understand that the construction and property sector’s essential transition to a more sustainable approach will remain a key feature of our work for some time to come.
Mia Häggström, Head of Sustainability
We are happy and proud to have the privilege of participating as an active party in the great transformation towards an increasingly sustainable and responsible financial market. To reach the climate goals in the Paris Agreement, the entire financial world needs to take a major responsibility for the climate.
Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury
Real estate is the business that has the biggest environmental footprint and for this reason it is important that we as a sector are the forefront in terms of sustainability work. Our entire property holdings are certified as sustainable and green financing is another important part of our sustainability efforts. The property sector has shown that it takes this issue seriously but now Fabege is setting the bar for green financing and challenges the other players in the industry to follow our lead.
Mia Häggström, Head of Sustainability
The property is not located in one of our priority areas so it feels sensible to sell it.
Stefan Dahlbo, President and CEO
It has been a fantastic journey to be able to create Hotel Giò together with Kom Hotel. We have had a common vision about trying to preserve the Hagahuset building’s feel and charm by considering its great qualities and meticulously designed details, which I really think we have succeeded with.
Johanna Axe Skoglund, Project Manager at Fabege
High ambitions, commitment and a lot of hard work all through the organisation lie behind the award of this recognition. In our role, we can influence developments and it is a responsibility that we shoulder with pleasure. In these areas, there should only be winners.
Mia Häggström, Sustainability Manager
I am happy that Fabege stands strong in the crisis we are all going through. The performance shows a strong company with stable operations.
Stefan Dahlbo, CEO
“The ambitious plans in Flemingsberg are now starting to take shape. The planning programme has been out for consultation and our first major lease is now in place. Naturally we are delighted to share the news that Operan and Dramaten are choosing to locate some of their activities here in particular."
Stefan Dahlbo, President and CEO, Fabege.
I am extremely proud of the position we have obtained and the commitment our employees are making to ensure that we continually take some steps in the right direction. We know that our work creates value and favourable conditions both for our customers and other stakeholders
Mia Häggström, Head of Sustainability
We are pleased that we had the opportunity to acquire the land from Skanska. Through the acquisition, we have the opportunity to get started with the development of Flemingsberg faster, which is very pleasing. We are also looking forward to continues good cooperation with the municipality of Huddinge and with our neighbours in the area. Christian Hermelin, CEO Fabege
Christian Hermelin, CEO
We have ambitious aims for our sustainability work, much of which is an integral part of our operating activities. It’s very pleasing to now be establishing a new framework that contributes to expanding our green financing platform, enabling us and finance providers to contribute to more sustainable development.
Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury
The sale is evidence that the transaction market remains strong in Stockholm. “Demand for modern offices in prime locations is healthy, and we are not seeing any slowdown in the number of enquiries from institutional investors
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development
This is the first time we’re doing this survey in an entire area, but that’s also when we’ll have a real opportunity to exert an influence and make a real difference. We’re planning to work with SL (the local public transport operator in Stockholm) and other actors to ensure that more car commuters gain access to better public transport opportunities. One hypothesis we wish to explore, for example, is what a new bus service from Ropsten to Arenastaden would entail in terms of reduced emissions
Mia Häggström, Head of Sustainability at Fabege.
The investment has meant that we no longer need to purchase any cooling, and that the amount of district heating purchased has been reduced by 75 percent thanks to the energy stored in the bedrock
Alexander Carlsson, operations manager at Fabege.
It is of course extremely exciting that we are up and running with this important project, together with Huddinge Municipality. Attractive workplaces located close to where people live are needed, also on the southern side of Stockholm, and utilizing vacant capacity in existing infrastructure is very wise. We hope that this new city district will create a better balance and more competitiveness in the entire Stockholm region.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development
As a proactive urban developer, it is quite natural for Fabege to also get involved in creating new homes. The project in Solna and partnership with the TB Group is another example of such an initiative, with Fabege actively contributing to more homes being built.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice-President and Director of Business Development
It is fantastic that a creative, young and expansive company has chosen to be based in Hammarby Sjöstad. Hyper Island runs a business that involves the general public, which attracts people to it and thereby contributes to achieving a dynamic urban district.
Andreas Malmsäter, Letting Manage
Together with Huddinge Municipality and other stakeholders, we want to transform the Flemingsberg area from being a strong regional centre into a dynamic international star.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, CEO of the consortium.
Due to our focus on offices, it is a natural step to divest this school property now that it has been completed and is about to open. The property is fully leased and provides no further development potential for Fabege. We are convinced that Pareto previously acquired and today manages this type of community properties will be a good landlord.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development at Fabege
We’re looking forward to getting to know Trustly’s employees and to adapting the offices in order to reflect both the company’s brand and its core values. There is a substantial level of interest in the remaining 3,000 sqm in the building, and we hope to be able to welcome more new and exciting tenants to the district in the near future
Andreas Malmsäter, Letting Manager
We’ve long been attracted by the location of the building, its shape, wealth of details and, in particular, the artistic thoughtfulness in the little park. There are unique opportunities here to create an attractive concept, and we’re delighted that Kom Hotel will be refining this gem
Klaus Hansen Vikström
Our collaboration as an urban developer with Generation Pep and the City of Solna to help boost opportunities for movement and exercise in our local environment is an important and exciting partnership. Gen Pep’s concept of combining adult gym equipment with play equipment for children is an intelligent way of encouraging a healthy lifestyle, both for our customers and for those who live in the area, so it feels completely natural for us to be on board making sure the parks are created
Christian Hermelin, CEO
The new buildings rights will allow us to create a fantastic entrance to Arenastaden. We have high ambitions in relation to both the development of Dalvägen and the creation of the new districts, and we’re delighted that the initial steps towards the new vision for Solna Station have now been taken
Christian Hermelin, CEO
The positive development of Arenastaden, and in particular Friends Arena, is generating a growing need for hotels situated in the vicinity. Nordic Choice Hotel’s new hotel initiative will create improved conditions for both Friends Arena and Mall of Scandinavia, as well as companies’ visitors and employees.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development at Fabege
We’re delighted about the continued strong demand for our green bonds and our increased green financing opportunities. Half of Fabege's funding is now green and we are positively observing the increasingly responsible financial market.
Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury
We are very pleased to be able to continue developing our relationship with ICA. It is very much in line with our strategy of being customer-focused and flexible.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Deputy CEO and Director of Business Development
Resedan was a somewhat lonely item in our portfolio and Probitas was an obvious buyer, as it already owns a property in that area
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development
Fabege considers it important to continue operating as a strong, long-term owner and administrator in Arenastaden. The latest transaction aligns with the Fabege business model which aims to boost the potential of the portfolio by selling modern, fully refined properties so as to free up capital for value-generating project investments. In Arenastaden alone, Fabege owns almost 200,000 sqm of commercial development rights, which are set to be developed over the coming years. Through this latest sale, we are creating space to continue completing value-generating investments in our chosen areas. The property is a good match for the investment market’s demand for modern offices in attractive locations, fully leased and with long-term contracts. In the same way as previously, Fabege will be responsible for operation and administration, and I’m delighted with the working relationship built on trust we enjoy with Union Investment.
Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development
“Our ambition is to increase the proportion of capital market financing primarily via our green bond programme. The credit rating from Moody’s puts us in a better position for seeking financing on favourable terms.”
Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury, Fabege
“We’ve now taken the next step in our financial profiling. Fabege is keen to make investors aware of our high quality and our long-term approach. We’re delighted to have received this acknowledgement of the company’s financial stability via the rating from Moody’s.”
Åsa Bergström, Vice President and CFO
Green funding is an important part of our sustainability work and by the end of 2017, 47 per cent of our total funding was green. Receiving the highest rating from Moody's is a quality measurement that we are very proud of.
Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury Fabege
We’re looking forward to welcoming Skolverket to Solna Business Park. Skolverket will gain good, attractive premises that will support their activities, in a sustainable district with excellent communications.
Andreas Malmsäter, Letting Manager at Fabege.
- I am particularly pleased with the two major lettings to Swedbank and Bilia, which pave the way for continued value-adding project development. The occupancy rate in the project portfolio now amounts to 88 per cent. Projects continued to deliver at a high level – the return on invested capital during the period was 66 per cent. Fabege is an organisation that is capable of exploiting opportunities to create value. With our stable cash flow in property management and our well located project portfolio, I look forward to our positive trend continuing into 2018
Christian Hermelin, CEO
It feels great and exciting to be working with Skanska, which has shown great enthusiasm and commitment to partnering with us on this project. Skanska is a cutting edge enterprise, working hard to reduce environmental impact, and placing great emphasis on occupational health and safety at its construction sites. Fabege is growing; several projects are under way and we are keen to team up with contractors who prioritise areas that are important to us, and who live up to our demanding standards.
Klas Holmgren, Director of Projects and Development at Fabege.
We are very pleased with the solution we have identified together with Bilia, as a result of which they will remain in a location that has become increasingly attractive over the years as a result of the proximity to Arenastaden, Hagaparken and the expanded public transport options at Solna station, as well as now being in a brand new and vibrant city district with both residential and commercial properties.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President at Fabege.
We are looking forward to working with Swedbank for many years to come and welcoming the bank's employees to Grand Central Sundbyberg.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development at Fabege
We’re delighted about the strong demand for our green bonds and our increased green financing opportunities. The extended framework is consistent with our efforts to finance the company using green funding, and sits well with our ambitious sustainability work.
Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury
We are well-equipped to take advantage of the current positive market conditions. Our projects continue to deliver at a high level – yield on capital invested during the first six months of the year was 54 percent. As project properties are completed and tenants move in, we are beginning to see the positive effects of the increased cash flow in our income statement. With a committed organisation and considerable potential in our market and our property portfolio, I look forward to continued favourable development in 2017 and 2018.
Christian Hermelin, CEO
City district development is all about creating an attractive setting where the people who live, work and spend time in the area can really enjoy their everyday lives. When building a great many residences, offices and commercial premises, it is essential to remember the children. How can we help citizens put together their everyday lives, and where would be good places to establish schools and preschool facilities? In Råsunda, we have worked closely with the city authorities to come up with an excellent holistic solution for a great many people.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development at Fabege
We are extremely excited by the prospect of creating a fantastic office environment and truly extraordinary film studio for Goodbye Kansas. Their energy, growth and creativity are sure to make an even greater contribution to the area, which is already home to a large number of tech and media companies
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development at Fabege
If we succeed in reducing the amount of transportation to and from our areas, then we’ve come a long way towards creating a more sustainable district.
Carl Michael Augustsson, Director of Urban Development at Fabege
In AEG, with its extensive international network and experience, we’ve found a partner with an excellent reputation with whom we can continue to develop the events experience at Friends Arena while positioning the Stockholm region internationally.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Board member at Arenabolaget i Solna.
We’re seeing a clear increase in interest for the south side of Stockholm, which we as urban developers think is positive in terms of creating a good balance in the city. Thanks to strong brands making their way southwards, the positive trend of increased service, more frequent public transport services and an inner-city feel will continue at a rapid pace.
Klaus Hansen Vikström, Vice President and Director of Business Development
Christian Hermelin, CEO
Market conditions remain positive. I am confident that both rent levels and property values will continue upward, albeit at a slower pace than we have seen over the past year. Completed projects will help boost cash flow in 2017. We have considerable potential in our development rights and are well positioned to capitalise on the business opportunities that lie ahead.
2016 was characterized by good market conditions combined with strong operational delivery and thereby large increases in value.Our healthy sales allow scope for continued project investment and new acquisitions, which will help increase future potential
Christian Hermelin, CEO Fabege
We will continue to increase our green financing. Green financing now represents 21 percent of our total funding. It is also gratifying that the price differentiation we have seen on green bank loans now also can be seen on the green bond market
Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury
We’re genuinely looking forward to welcoming a dynamic, fast-growing technology company to the area. Snow Software will make a positive contribution to the business culture we have here.
Susanna Elvsén, Market Area Manager, Solna Business Park
We’re delighted that Migrationsverket has decided to remain with Fabege. Our long-standing and highly successful relationship meant that it was extremely important to us to identify a great office and location for their operations.
Andreas Malmsäter, Head of Leasing at Fabege
