Plans for Säve solidify


Since the acquisition, Serneke’s vision for Säve has been to develop the airport area for industry, logistics and the experiences segment. The plans for creating a mixed-purpose industrial zone in the area have now solidified further.

“In the Säve area, we want to create space in which Gothenburg’s industrial and business communities can expand, directly adjacent to the Hisingen Bypass, the port and the city. This mixed-purpose industrial zone will include a combination of industry, logistics, trade and experiences. There is room here for space-demanding activities, while the area will, in itself, be an attraction worth visiting – it will be an industrial area in which we place people at the center more than previously,” says Krister Johansson, President of Serneke Property.

In the new plans for Säve, the mixed-purpose industrial zone will emerge over an area equivalent to 1,500,000 square meters (of the total of approximately 3,100,000 square meters that Serneke owns in the area). All types of operations can be established here, ranging from small-scale operations requiring 1,000-5,000 square meters up to normal-sized logistics facilities of 25,000 – 50,000 square meters. There is also scope for truly large-scale facilities of 100,000 square meters or more. Among the operations already established at Säve is CEVT, which conducts research and development in the automotive industry.

To create an area that focuses on people, the staff-intensive parts of all operations will be oriented towards a number of main streets. This means the neighbors are never far away, and natural locations are created in which restaurants and services can set up. The plan is for the area to be developed in stages. In an initial stage, the central area will appear. The development will then expand to the north and, in the third stage, the area to the south will be developed.

“With its strategic location close to roads, the port and the city, and with the space available combined with existing operations, we see a great potential for Säve,” says Krister Johansson.

The City of Gothenburg is including the development plans in the comprehensive planning process currently under way.
