Projektträger – zwischengeschaltetes Finanzinstitut
CITY OF STOCKHOLM
The project concerns the financing of the City of Stockholm housing programme. The investment loan will include the new construction of around 1,500 municipal housing units for rent to be built by the three housing companies owned by the municipality. The construction of new housing units are expected to be complementary to the local regeneration and renovation activities in the built urban environment and to be integrated into urban development plans.
The aim of the operation is to address strong demand for housing in the Stockholm agglomeration, where the waiting period reaches ten years. Increasing cost of land and house purchase and residential rental prices in the region, together with continuous immigration is putting pressure on the availability of housing.
