Wihlborgs to modernise the cityscape at Lund Central Station
Wihlborgs is starting the new construction of an office property, Postterminalen 1, which will be the first large-scale addition of modern office premises in the private market, in central Lund, for many years. The property is located next to the municipality’s new office building, Kristallen, near the railway station and will accommodate about 600 workplaces.
The name is the same, but the former Postterminalen building will now be replaced by a new bright ultra-modern office premises in the Sockerbruket district, close to Kristallen, Lund’s municipal headquarters. Demand for new office premises has been strong in Lund for a long time and Postterminalen with its 11,000 square metres will meet the need for flexible office premises in a central location.
Postterminalen is located adjacent to Lund railway station and will be directly connected to the centre via the new cycle and pedestrian bridge over the railway line. The offices are easily accessible by bus and train, which will give tenants the opportunity to use public transport to and from work.
“In recent years, there has been strong demand for modern office premises in central Lund. Postterminalen’s offices will meet this need and offer modern, bright premises adjacent to Lund central station,” says Anders Jarl, CEO of Wihlborgs Fastigheter AB. Over the years, Wihlborgs has consciously focused on acquiring, managing and planning properties in locations close to good infrastructure.
Postterminalen is characterised by a clear environmental profile. The property will have its own solar cell system on the roof, it will receive the highest environmental classification and will also be certified according to Sweden Green Building Council’s Gold rating. The central location of the station also means that employees can travel in an environmental-friendly way to and from work.
PEAB has been commissioned to construct Postterminalen, which is expected to be ready for occupation by spring 2018 and after that the property will be managed by Wihlborgs.
