CONVENDUM invests heavily with new concepts in Umami Park
Convendum is expanding its presence in Umami Park, in Sundbyberg and will let a further just over 6,200 square meters for a conference center, corporate housing with a pertaining lounge and the “Big Office”, which is a unique all-inclusive office concept. In total, the letting will include four floors with office and conference space in different buildings as well as 75 corporate housing units.
“The development of Umami Park is continuing as planned and Convendum’s innovative office and housing solutions will contribute to completely new opportunities for collaboration and development here, which is extremely positive. The proximity to Kista and Arenastaden makes this a perfect location for both coworking and coliving, and a complement to the large corporate establishments that are found in the immediate surroundings,” says Mathias Aronsson, Vice CEO of Wallenstam.
When fully developed, Umami Park will be an area with 800 new homes and commercial space for shops, restaurants, a nursery school and local services in Sundbyberg. At year-end, a lease agreement was signed for 5,000 creative square meters in Umami Park and now Convendum is expanding its establishment here with a further just over 6,200 square meters, which means a total area of 11,200 square meters. The establishment features several parts, including a conference center, the “Big Office” concept, which offers flexible, larger premium offices with an all-inclusive solution incorporating furniture, technology and ancillary service. Also included is the “Coliving” concept, which offers flexible corporate housing with an all-inclusive solution. Occupation will occur gradually and is expected to start during the first quarter of 2020.
“Umami Park, has a perfect location and an exciting future ahead of it. For this reason, we have decided to invest further in the area, which will be an exciting meeting place for innovations and development where small and large companies meet. This establishment is a part of Convendum’s network for Stockholm, which will create opportunities for client companies to have offices and conferences in many locations, where the entire infrastructure is included. Through this investment, we are now adding flexible premium offices with all-inclusive, new conference experiences and other innovative solutions for both work and housing in Umami Park,” says Håkan Jeppsson, CEO of Convendum.
