A completely new district is emerging in Mariesjö in Skövde. Where industries and business premises were previously located, a new area is now being built where housing, offices, a university, shops and various service functions will coexist.
The Bostället residential area, which was completed in the fall of 2023, includes two buildings with 71 apartments. Right from the start, there was great interest in the new homes, and one of those who has moved in is 26-year-old software programmer Hannes Kindströmmer.
- "I like living here, many of the neighbors are young people and I'm close to everything I'm interested in here in Skövde. It will be exciting to see how the new district develops," says Hannes.
Good location in Skövde
Thomas Liljebo, construction project manager at Skövdebostäder >> notes that the construction of Bostället has proceeded according to schedule.
- We are delighted to be the first to build in the Skövde Science City >> and it is also nice that the apartments at Bostället have been popular and that it has been fully rented out. The area has a great location with proximity to the University of Skövde, Science Park Skövde, Boulognerskogen, Resecentrum and the city center," he says.
Why is Skövde Science City being built?
The investment is made to develop and enable more establishments in Skövde's strongest profile areas of smart industry, game development and financial technology, and to meet the needs of a growing Skövde and Skaraborg. The transformation that is now taking place is the largest in Skövde's modern history and the project to build Skövde Science City will last until 2040.
