Karlastaden will be a new mixed district in Gothenburg, Sweden, crowned by a tower that stretches 245 meters up in the air. Simply because sometimes the smartest way to build more is to build high.
The intention is to create a well-integrated part of the city that is ecologically, financially and socially sustainable and is alive day and night, every day of the week.
To create this attractive location in Gothenburg we thought further and upwards. Barely ten minutes from downtown Gothenburg you find Lindholmen and Karlastaden. This is where we will build our idea of a condensed mixed city, covering a ground area of about 32 000 square meters with 2000 apartments and offices, shops, restaurants, medical center, school and more. And in the middle of it all stands the 245-meter-tall skyscraper.
Karlastaden is developed entirely by Serneke and has an estimated turnover of 10 billion over 4-5 years. Ola Serneke, CEO and founder of Serneke Group, has initiated the project himself.
