Stockholm Arlanda Airport is currently in a development phase. Cargo City, a new centre for air cargo, logistics and manufacturing, is being developed in an area close to the terminals.

With land for development covering a total of 144,400 m2, Swedavia is currently seeking one or more partners for a long-term joint venture.

Swedavia AB is a Swedish state-owned company, which owns and operates ten of Sweden’s busiest airports. It has its head office at the air traffic control tower of Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN) in Sigtuna Municipality near Stockholm.

Airport developments in progress

Construction is currently in full swing at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. In the summer of 2023, a new security checkpoint is set to open in Terminal 5.

Shortly after that, in the autumn the first step of new Marketplace will open – the largest commercial investment ever at Arlanda.

Beyond that, further construction work is also under way elsewhere at Arlanda. In the southwest section of the airport, Cargo City is taking shape.

Cargo City development

Cargo City will be a new centre for air cargo, logistics and manufacturing. Situated one kilometre from Sweden’s largest airport and with good connectivity to road networks, it is an optimal location for companies that need efficient premises and facilities.

Swedavia’s Real Estate business segment is currently seeking one or more partners that want to work in partnership with the Real Estate division to develop land for the project.

The area in question covers a total of about 144,400 m2 and with estimated building rights for a gross building area of about 58,000 m2.

Swedavia sees great advantages in working together with one or more operators that have good skills and experience in property development with a focus on logistics and/or manufacturing.

“The area around Arlanda has become one of the most important development areas for manufacturing and logistics in the Stockholm region.”

“We think it is exciting that we can now offer this opportunity for collaboration and partnership on such a large area at Airport City Stockholm and look forward to many interesting business proposals,” says Stefan Stenberg, CEO of Swedavia Real Estate.
