The development is strategically located close to Arlanda airport, Sweden’s largest and busiest passenger and freight airport. Targeting BREEAM Very Good, it has been designed with operational and energy efficiency in mind, built with roofs ready for PV panel installation and other sustainable features.

With a well-connected local team, we have been able to secure the opportunity and deliver this high-quality asset in a very timely manner. It is an excellent addition to our growing Nordics portfolio and high-calibre occupiers such as Aprilice set a promising tone for future discussions.”
