Gothenburg municipality will redevelop the area north of Göta Älv in central Gothenburg referred to as the Free Port Area (Sw: Frihamnen). The first phase, scheduled for completion in 2021, will represent one of the largest development projects in Gothenburg comprising 3,000 new residential units together with 2,000 new work places, a public park and ancillary commercial and public services.
A competitive tender process for the first phase of the project was undertaken during 2014, in which Rikshem worked with Scius Development Partner to submit a tender. The submitted tender was successful and Rikshem was allocated approximately 60 000 sq m residential building rights in the first phase. Scius Development Partner will during the development phase work together with Rikshem in their role as one of the leading partners in the consortium going forward.
