Castellum, a listed property company in the Nordic region, has begun construction of a new police station at Exportgatan in Hisingen, Sweden.

The police station is being built on the site where the old printing office for the Swedish daily Göteborgs-Posten was once located.

The approximately 9,000m2 police station is expected to be ready for occupancy during Q2 2025.

The Greater Gothenburg Hisingen precinct will shift from its premises on Vågmästareplatsen to the new premises next to the E6 motorway.

Besides shifting the bus stop closer to the property, a new footpath will be constructed to increase accessibility for pedestrians.

The Swedish Police Authority is one of largest tenants of Castellum.

Castellum regional managing director Mariette Hilmersson said: “Castellum is extremely proud of being entrusted with constructing a complex building for the Swedish Police Authority and the Greater Gothenburg Hisingen police precinct.

“We look forward to handing over a state-of-the-art property in 2025 that will help the authority in its vital daily activities.”

The investment on this project is around SEK470m ($44.9m).

The rental value and length of contract for the property is around SEK445m ($42.5m) over a period of 15 years, respectively.

Castellum develops flexible workplaces and smart logistics solutions.

As of 30 September 2022, its property value totalled around SEK186bn ($17.7m), including the ownership share of the Norwegian company Entra.
