Lumi comprises a total of 15,500 square meters of lettable area spread over seven floors, the majority of which are offices and laboratories. The remaining parts are made up of shops and restaurants at street level. With the lettings, Lumi reaches a letting rate of around 70 percent before the start of the project. The project investment corresponds to SEK 740 million and means that Vasakronan takes the next step in the Södra city urban development project.
Södra city comprises a total of approximately 70,000 square meters of project opportunities in the form of offices, housing, hotels and preschools. The detailed plan includes several blocks and a green belt, and the area is developed in close collaboration with Uppsala Municipality. When the entire Södra city is ready, the area will link the Travel Center in the east with Fyrisån in the west, and central Uppsala with the Kungsängen residential area in a north-south direction.
"Uppsala is an attractive city to work and live in and it is growing at a fast pace. In Södra city, we work to create the conditions for the city's continued development. The ambition is to create a lively and exciting district where both companies and people want to be, and we are already noticing an interest in this. Together with the city's plans for, among other things, the greenway, the å room at Hamnplan and the expansion of Uppsala C, Södra city has all the conditions to play a central role in the city," says Bo de Besche, regional manager Uppsala.
Construction of Lumi will begin in the fall of 2022 and the house is expected to be ready for occupancy in the first quarter of 2024. The project has a clear focus on reuse and circularity. Among other things, the existing concrete frame and foundation will be retained. Plaster walls are dismantled and reused in new walls and installation products such as ventilation devices, plumbing products and sanitary ware are reused.
