TRANSFORMING THE BUILDING COMPLEX FOR THE FUTURE
The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the development proposal for Brädstapeln
On April 18, 2018, The Planning and Zoning Commission of Stockholm (Stadsbyggnadsnämnden) approved the development proposal for the Brädstapeln building complex. The proposal was developed in close cooperation with the Urban Planning Office of Stockholm (Stadsbyggnadskontoret) and is designed by the French architect Manuelle Gautrand and the Swedish architectural firm Equator. We are proud and delighted that our proposal will become a reality, and look forward to realizing our vision of a more open and accessible site that will connect central Stockholm to the island of Kungsholmen.
The development of the Brädstapeln building complex on Kungsholmen, is a joint collaboration between the property owners Areim, a real estate owner and fund management company, and Gamla Livförsäkringsaktiebolaget SEB Trygg Liv, an insurance company. Areim owns Brädstapeln 16 through the fund Areim Fond II and Gamla Livförsäkringsaktiebolaget SEB Trygg Liv owns Brädstapeln 13.
When Brädstapeln was acquired by Gamla Livförsäkringsaktiebolaget SEB Trygg Liv in the 1960s, the property was already an prime example of pioneering architecture. When Areim acquired Brädstapeln 16 in 2014, another major step was taken in the process of transforming the property into a center of social and commercial activity that will revitalize the entire neighborhood. The two owners will now jointly develop Brädstapeln, thereby realizing the full potential of this part of Kungsholmen. Our aim is to create a welcoming retail and business hub that is also a world-class architectural landmark with the potential of reshaping the Stockholm skyline
As real estate owners, our vision is to create a vibrant neighborhood that will reshape the urban landscape of Stockholm. Brädstapeln will become a lively and inspiring meeting place, offering a wide variety of shops, cafes and restaurants. A new social and commercial hub in the heart of Kungsholmen.
FOR THE NEW BRÄDSTAPELN SITE
The new Brädstapeln site is scheduled to be completed at different stages during 2018 and 2019.
