WE ARE THE KLOUD

Kista is about to change. The Kloud is a broad initiative where, together with commercial property owners, Ericsson, KTH, Stockholm University, Stockholms stad, Region Stockholm and Kista Science City, we activate and develop the district. Our goal is to unite businesses, property developers, academia, and the city to create a more vibrant district, with more homes, more jobs and that is fun to be in. Behind the initiative is Kista Limitless which is a company created by the property owners Atrium Ljungberg, Castellum, Corem, Revelop and Vasakronan, with the aim of strengthening Kista as a creative place and engine of growth.

change is in the air

Kista has many strengths. It is one of the world's leading clusters of tech and telecom companies, it has good communications, a popular mall, and green spaces, but it needs an update. The Kloud is the change engine that drives the update forward. The future of Kista has already started and the development of new communications, innovative technology, modern living concepts and residential areas, offices, parks, walkways, and roads are in full swing. Kista's urban development is the third largest in Stockholm. It’s a district in constant motion.

Revelop wants to create a positive impact by repositioning and developing properties, rather than creating something new. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do, and our goal is to produce attractive, vibrant places that contribute to sustainable urban environments. Our presence in Kista includes the nordicForum property.

Right now, a project is underway to convert empty office space into a four-star hotel in collaboration with the hotel chain Marriott. Here, over 200 rooms, a restaurant with outdoor seating, conference and swimming pool are created through the development of the existing property and surrounding land.

As part of the transformation into an attractive, lively Kista, we have created a new green park with an outdoor gym and a pergola where there used to be a parking lot.

“In 2040, Kista is one of Stockholm's most attractive and innovative districts for establishment within the industries of the future."

FAQ

Here you’ll find the answers to commonly asked questions about The Kloud, Kista Limitless and what value we will add in Kista.

Specifically, what will you do in Kista?

Create an attractive mixed city with both housing, offices and services that thrive around the clock.

Together with the housing developers and the city, we will invest more than SEK 20 billion in the area, which will generate over 8,000 new homes, 8,000 new jobs and new and refurbished infrastructure. The district's public spaces, such as parks, squares and other areas, will be developed. Also, new hotels, restaurants, cafés and offices will be established, and there will be a number of new community properties in schools, health care and improved conditions for local sports and associations.

What is The Kloud?

Kista's engine of change, Kista's voice and a community that unites different players.

The Kloud is a brand concept that unites the various players in Kista such as real estate companies, housing developers, businesses, academia and the city. Through its channels, The Kloud is Kista's unifying common voice.

What has The Kloud done so far?

We create collaborations, a more fun and nicer place to be, and make sure that there are places to hang out. In addition, we work every day to share exciting news about Kista.

We have already committed ourselves to the urban space to create a nicer place to be by, for example, adding new lighting. We have also started a number of different collaborations with organizations that are now in Kista, for example Changers Hub. Furthermore, we have created "The Hub" which is a place to socialize and hang out next to Grönlandsparken. This is a first example of similar initiatives planned for the future. We also create daily content for our channels thekloud.se, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, where broadcast everything that happens in the district.

What is the value of the investment?

We want to make Kista more lively, easily accessible and more fun for both Järva and Stockholm.

Our goal is to make Kista an increasingly vibrant district, with more housing and more jobs, and in addition, it will be a more fun place to be. This will make Kista a more accessible and relevant place ­– regardless of whether it is for living, working or visiting. And this applies to the rest of Järva as well as to Stockholm as a whole.

Why invest in Kista?

To strengthen Kista as a brand, engage people in development and attract new companies, students and residents to Kista.

We see a responsibility to make Kista its best self. It's a hugely important area both for Stockholm and for Sweden – it is a growth engine for Stockholm, and several of the most important companies of the future are located here. The investment will mean that more companies will settle in Kista and therefore mean new jobs. Of course, we also believe that it is a good investment financially.
