Living Stockholm

Grosvenor in Stockholm

Grosvenor Europe has been active in Stockholm since April 2011.

The Scandinavian market is amongst the most active in Europe, benefiting from a dynamic economy and we have been active there since the acquisition of a prime hypermarket in Helsingborg in April 2011. The Stockholm office opened at the beginning of 2012 and Grosvenor Europe now owns six shopping centres in Sweden. In 2015 Grosvenor Europe acquired Stockholm’s Skärholmen Centrum, one of Sweden’s leading shopping centres, on behalf of the Retail Centres V (Sweden) fund.

 

On Thursday 26 February 2015 James Raynor, Chief Executive Officer, Grosvenor Europe, spoke at the PropertyEU Nordic's breakfast. Watch the video below.

My Stockholm

A personal view by Agnes Reutersward

"The best and also a unique thing about Stockholm is that it sits on 14 islands and is surrounded by water with Lake Mälaren and the entrance to the great archipelago. The water is so clean you can safely swim and catch salmon and freshwater fish.

 

My favourite time of year here is Summer when we have almost 19 hours of sunlight day and night. The early hours, when you think it is still night time but the sun is rising again, are magical.

 

Stockholm has a lot of cafés where we Swedes try to get a cup of coffee and a cinnamon bun (we call it 'fika') together with friends as often as we can. When it comes to shopping I love all the design stores with furniture from Nordic designers."

Grosvenor's city insights

  1. Fast growing, living city

    Already one of Western Europe's five fastest growing cities, Stockholm's growth has increased significantly in recent years. It is still a very livable city with many parks and recreational spaces.

  2. Europe's 'best kept secret'

    The Stockholm archipelago is considered by many to be Europe's 'best kept secret'. With over 30,000 islands and islets stretching over 60 km from Vaddo in the north to Landsort in the south, the archipelago showcases some breathtaking scenery.

  3. The hub of the Nordics

    Stockholm is the perfect location for business in Northern Europe. Almost half of all multi-nationals with operations in Scandinavia have their headquarters here.

  4. An attractive market for investors

    The Stockholm region is diverse, pioneering and well-connected to the rest of Europe. As the largest city and growth engine of Scandinavia, with a transparent and stable business atmosphere, Stockholm is an attractive location for investors.
