Arlandastad Holding is a young, concept-driven company that works with property and concept development at one of Sweden’s most attractive sites, neighbouring the whole world via Stockholm Arlanda Airport. Here, we control 241 hectares of land and, aided by cooperation, creativity and expertise, we are developing locations in which commercial interests, public authorities and research can interact.

Cooperation is one of our watchwords and together with the municipality of Sigtuna and Swedavia, the government-owned group that operates 11 airports across the country, we are building Airport City Stockholm, the first development of its kind in Sweden. Over an area of 800 hectares, we are together creating a dynamic community with the unique advantage of having the rest of the world within walking distance.

Our strength as a company is that we do not focus solely on production and management. We are building an attractive and long-term sustainable platform on which companies and other stakeholders can build clusters and effective cooperations. Through concept development, we shape spaces in which this can happen. One example of this is our concept area DriveLAB, where, through facilities and properties, we are bringing into existence an area where automotive businesses can work to generate future innovations and solutions.

The development of the area around Arlanda Airport is a priority concern for the Stockholm region and Sweden as a whole. The airport and its surroundings have experienced a high level of growth in recent years. Each year, some 1,000 new job opportunities are created in the Arlanda area and Sigtuna is one of Sweden’s fastest growing municipalities. For Arlandastad Holding, it is exciting to be involved in driving this development forward.
