Urban Development

Gothenburg is expanding and the city is densifying.

An estimated EUR 100 billion will be invested in property developments and infrastructure between 2016 and 2035. Gothenburg is on a new path towards becoming a truly sustainable and interconnected city. The region is bustling with development projects and many of them are in ideal city locations. This will throw open tremendous job opportunities for talent in this area. There exists a shortage of thereof and the city needs skilled workers in all aspects of urban development to actualise the plans.

One such project is River City, where former shipyard areas in the heart of Gothenburg will be given a revival and new city areas will emerge. With 25,000 new apartments and 45,000 workplaces, it’s the largest urban development project in Scandinavia. Construction is planned through until 2035 and large parts are scheduled for completion by 2021 – when the city celebrates 400 years.
