Castellum building new courthouse for Swedish Judiciary Administration in Malmö

The government has approved the Swedish Judiciary Administration's leasing application and a leasing agreement has been reached between the Swedish Judiciary Administration and Castellum, which is beginning construction of a new 25,000 square meter, modern courthouse, centrally located in Malmö’s Nyhamnen district. The investment, valued at approximately SEK 1.2 billion, constitutes an important part of Castellum’s strategy to continue growing in the Öresund region and this will be one of Castellum’s largest-ever construction projects.

The Swedish Judiciary Administration investigated various alternatives for a possible location for the new courthouse for the district court and the county administrative court in Malmö. The choice fell to Castellum’s proposal for new and more spacious premises in Nyhamnen, centrally located and near Malmö's central railroad station. Nyhamnen is one of Malmö’s most important development areas and where Castellum, one of the largest stakeholders, is also building a new head office for E.ON – an investment estimated at about SEK 1.1 billion. The courthouse will be one of northern Europe’s largest workplaces for legal professionals and one of Castellum's largest-ever construction projects.

“It feels good that the choice fell to Castellum as the most suitable partner for developing a modern courthouse for the Judiciary Administration,” says Henrik Saxborn, Castellum's CEO. “Working in close collaboration with the City of Malmö, the project strengthens Castellum’s position as the Öresund region’s most exciting urban developer. We will be building both the courthouse and E.ON’s head office directly adjoining the city's main railroad station.”

About the project

Planned new construction in Nyhamnen will comprise about 25,000 square meters of leasable area. The proposal has been prepared by the Henning Larsen architecture agency in dialogue and cooperation with Jernhusen concerning the local plan.

Work with a new local plan is underway and construction will begin shortly after the plan has been approved. Construction is expected to take about two years and move-in for the district court and the county administrative court is preliminarily slated for 2022/2023.
