Land acquired by Skanska, Wihlborgs and LKP
Three different parties have now gained access to four plots of land in Science Village. With the approval of the zoning plan in August 2018, the first developers have been able to acquire land from Science Village Scandinavia AB. As a result, the project planning process can now continue, and they will soon be breaking ground. Wihlborgs is acquiring the property where Space is planned as well as the plot to the west of Space, where premises are planned for office space, labs, training and service. Skanska is acquiring the plot on the southern side of Rydbergs Torg where The Loop is planned, while LKP has acquired a plot where one of the area’s two car parks will be built.
Both The Loop and Space are good examples of the dynamics of the area, with Space providing guest accommodation for visiting researchers and users of the facilities, and The Loop providing the area’s first premises for companies and institutions. Both buildings also contain areas for the public, with restaurants and areas suitable for exhibitions. A large concert hall/auditorium is also being built in The Loop.
LKP will be building the car parks in Science Village, but initially, outdoor parking will be offered to those commuting by car. As Science Village continues to grow, LKP will build modern car parking facilities in the area.
