The planned construction projects within the Stockholm region show a total investment volume of Euro 111 billion until the year 2040. Stockholm is the capital of Sweden. According to Invest Stockholm’s report, the largest investment share is in housing, with an investment volume of Euro 60.7 billion, followed by infrastructure investments in railway, subway and light rail, with an investment volume of Euro 9.6 billion.
This is a steady increase since 2017 when the investments were worth Euro 95 billion. In 2015, the investment potential was Euro 83 billion. The region is not just growing, it’s growing faster than ever before.
Erik Krüger, acting CEO of Invest Stockholm said, “Stockholm region is the economic growth engine of the Nordic countries and one of the fastest growing regions in Europe.”
With the rapid growth of people and businesses the need for new infrastructure, housing and workplaces are large. More than half of the total investments are in residential buildings, with the planned projects including more than 400, 000 dwellings.
Construction projects are planned throughout the whole Stockholm region. While the largest chunk is in the regional centre, Stockholm city, large parts of the infrastructure span from Stockholm to the outskirts of the region, and large development projects are planned in all of the larger cities.
