Slakthusområdet’s historical connection to food and culinary crafts remains a popular element among everything the district has to offer. Some of the world’s most famous restaurateurs will fill Slakthusområdet with everything from fine dining to modern street food. In cooperation with players within foodtech, we can also take culinary crafts to the next level and develop a food ecosystem of the future with focus on sustainability and health.
By building a location that stays vibrant and alive around the clock and that offers a broad range of culture and experiences, Slakthusområdet will become an attractive city district to visit, as well as to work and live in. Slakthusområdet will be filled with culture, art and night life, and Förbindelsehallen will become the cultural heart of the district. The beautiful old industrial buildings will house theatre, film, dance, e-sports, conferences and events. New business entrepreneurs and creators will operate here, and their content will also be available on stages in the area. By linking creation and experience, the city district will stay alive and vibrant morning to night.
The wide range of creativity and innovation that Sweden is associated with internationally will also be reflected in Slakthusområdet. Leading players in future industries focusing on tech, design and innovation will gather in creative clusters. Start-ups and global corporations will work alongside one another, and the mixture will ensure Slakthusområdet becomes a dynamic environment where development and sustainable growth thrive. Flexible office solutions, co-working areas and common digi-physical forums for collaboration between industries are being planned to facilitate fast-paced development. Close proximity to hotels and staff accommodation in a vibrant urban setting provide companies in Slakthusområdet with the opportunity for growth on a global market.
We are building a mixed-use city in Slakthusområdet with both rental and tenant-owned apartments. The districts we are developing will have co-creation and sustainable architecture as their guiding star. Adding a digital layer to our residential solutions for everything from a sharing economy to activities that bring neighbours together is something we are already working on and will naturally include as we plan Slakthusområdet’s residential properties. In addition to the traditional types of homes and accommodation such as apartments and hotels, we are also looking into building new types of housing such as co-living and long stay.
In June 2019, Atrium Ljungberg acquired existing properties and signed agreements for land allocations in Slakthusområdet. The acquisitions and developed land allocations represent a total of 200,000 m2 GFA. The acquisition is Atrium Ljungberg’s biggest ever and a crucial initiative in our strategy to create sustainable and innovative urban environments.
