Due to intense development in the Frölunda-Högsbo-Sisjö area, the city has reviewed the needs for technical supply of both energy and waste management. The municipality does not own any suitable buildable land in connection with the area in question but has identified the undeveloped property Kobbegården 152:1 as suitable for this purpose. The property is owned by Castellum, and the municipality has a strategic interest in acquiring it.

Castellum was in favor of selling the property to the municipality of Gothenburg in exchange for another development project. In connection with the negotiations, the parties identified a building right located north of Nordstan in central Gothenburg for this purpose.

At Monday's meeting of the property committee, it was decided that the municipality acquires the property Kobbegården 152:1 from Castellum, and that Castellum is at the same time allocated land allotment for a building right of approximately 20-30,000 sq.m. BTA for office and retail space including one of the entrances from Västlänken's future Station Centralen.

"A very gratifying decision which also means that we can build in direct connection to our current properties at the northern end of Östra Nordstan," states Mariette Hilmersson, CEO of Castellum Region West.

The agreed purchase price for the property Kobbegården 152:1 amounts to SEK 23.5 million.
