Skåne is Sweden’s fastest growing region with an established international reputation for green property development and construction. Skåne’s great location, at the crossroads between Scandinavia and Northern Europe and ease of entry into the property market, makes this a very attractive proposition to international property investors.
Leading in sustainable buildings and eco-city development
As the result of environmentally conscious policymaking and a comprehensive approach Sweden has become a hot-spot for development of energy efficient buildings and sustainable city districts. Property owners, developers, architects and property lenders are now making collective efforts to advance green property construction.
Skåne’s eco-city, the Western Harbour
The Western Harbour is an exciting example of a Swedish eco-city. This is an entirely new district of Malmö, with 600 dwellings, numerous office buildings, shops and other services.
Over the last 10 years it has been transformed from an industrial park into an area for knowledge and sustainable living. The Western Harbour provides a leading example of how a densely built urban environment can be adapted to the 21st century. Its planning, building and construction were all guided by an ecological approach.
A property market linked to a bright future
The transparency of the Swedish property market and attractiveness of the real estate has long made Sweden and Skåne popular with international property investors. Skåne is a prime Scandinavian location today for inward investment because of the easy access to Northern Europe, the Baltic and all the Scandinavian countries. The finalising of a fixed link tunnel between Denmark and Germany – the Fehmarn Belt – will also link Sweden to Germany by road and rail for the first time. This will significantly enhance Skåne’s trading role and have a very positive effect on future property values, making this the ideal time to invest.
