Comments from Hufvudstaden’s President, Anders Nygren.

I am proud of our achievements in 2023. We increased our gross profit from property management for the third consecutive year, and our strong financial position will enable continued development of our marketplaces. The office rental market is still stable in central locations and more retailers are feeling confident about the future.

Our development projects are making good progress and the largest project, the Johanna project in Goth-enburg, has come halfway towards its scheduled completion in two years. The public have been very curious about the block’s development and potential tenants are starting to show a great deal of interest.”
