This report covers the current office market development in Sweden at a submarket level in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, and at city level in regional cities. In this edition, Cushman & Wakefield takes a deeper look into the Stockholm market as well as the tenants’ relocation patterns and location strategies.
The pandemic-induced ‘work from home’ experiment has altered perspectives of work, flexibility, and the office. Now, when COVID-19 is no longer a lingering health concern, no one is expecting workers to come into the office to primarily perform heads-down tasks that can be done anywhere. So, what purpose does the office serve in the future? Will that purpose impact how occupiers reason about their portfolio footprints, location strategy and office design?
For this report we had the pleasure to interview Andreas Malmsäter – Head of Leasing at Fabege, Henrik Söderberg - Head of Workplace & Real Estate at WSP and Jens Ellevang - Head of Facility Management & Real Estate at Schneider Electric Nordics, to get an insight of what their future location strategies look like. In addition, Rikard Skoglund - Head of Agency Leasing and Gustaf Benndorf - Head of Tenant Representation at Cushman & Wakefield Sweden have participated. As a complement to the in-depth interviews, a survey was conducted which investigated the reasons behind why the tenants chose to relocate to new premises in Stockholm last year.
