The property and investment fair Expo Real is currently underway in Munich and Business Region Göteborg’s Andreas Göthberg is one of the people manning the Gothenburg stand. We received a progress report after day one directly from the fair.
The property sector gathers in Gothenburg on 11-12 September at the new meeting place Nordic Property Expo. Meanwhile, the region is in the middle of a historic period of rapid development. But in order for the planned development pace to continue, more construction capacity is required, explains Business Region Göteborg’s Andreas Göthberg
On 28 March 2017 the number of people living in the Gothenburg region will surpass one million. The number has a strong symbolic value, according to Business Region Göteborg’s Henrik Einarsson.
Interest in Gothenburg was at an “all-time high” at this year’s Mipim property show in Cannes, says Andreas Göthberg, project leader for team Gothenburg.
The Gothenburg region gained a new actor on the property and housing market, when Oscar Properties completed its first acquisition outside of the Swedish capital. Business Region Göteborg helped with the establishment.
With 5,000,000 m2 of gross floor area to be developed in the very city centre, Gothenburg offers one of the biggest centrally located urban investment opportunities ever heard in Europe.
Gothenburg will receive international attention on 9 December in Shenzhen, China, when the city is rewarded for its successful efforts within sustainable transport solutions. The winning entry is the quiet, emission-free electric bus ElectriCity, which is the result of a partnership between industry, academia and the municipality.
