Uppsala Business Park, Uppsala
Klövern’s urban development in Uppsala
The Uppsala Business Park of the future will go down in history as the location for innovation in Life Science. Uppsala Business Park is a strong brand associated with world-leading companies, global groups with advanced research and products. Going forward, Uppsala Business Park shall further development the successful culture of co-operation, innovation, belief in the future and research while also including more sectors and types of business that together will make a contribution to solving the vital issues of the future.
The transformation of Uppsala Business Park is a collaboration by the property owners in the area Klövern, Thermo Fischer Scientific, Fresenius Kabi & Johnson, the Municipality of Uppsala and Stuns Life Science. The local planning process will commence at the year-end 2020/2021 but a start can be made already now on the parts covered by the current local plan.
The work on the transformation of Uppsala Business Park was initiated in 2017 when the area was to a great extent fully let thanks to the high demand for offices and laboratory environments for research and development. Klövern then started to examine the prospects for expansion offered by undeveloped land in the company’s portfolio.
In an interview in Uppsala Nya Tidning, Per Nilsson, Klövern’s Head of Project Development in Sweden, commented that it is not just about creating an attractive location, but a context where businesses have the necessary conditions to work together and contribute to one another’s success.
Per Nilsson goes on to describe a vibrant part of the city which attracts researchers and talents from all over the world and which offers different types of service, retail outlets, restaurants and long-stay hotels, housing for students and researchers as well as a large-scale sports centre and environments for socialising.
The future for Uppsala Business Park will offer scope for 15,000 workspaces, 1,500 students, 500 residents and around 3 milion annual visitors.
