The Meatpacking District [Slakthusområdet in Swedish] is one of the largest urban development projects ever to be implemented in Stockholm. The area is being developed by Atrium Ljungberg in collaboration with the City of Stockholm and other property owners. By the year 2033, the Meatpacking District will have been developed into an enticing destination, a hub for food, culture and experiences, and an engine for the whole of Söderort. The Meatpacking District will be an urban area with a unique character, a district that people want to visit, work and live in. The is a breeding ground for creativity and innovation, with workplaces that are ideal for creative industries, tech and innovation. The Meatpacking District is a test bed for urban development that puts Stockholm on the world map, setting new standards for the future of city life, housing, workplaces, and sustainable urban environments. In the Meatpacking District, the creativity and innovative power that put Sweden on the world map are made manifest and given room to grow.
In the Meatpacking District, we continue to build on our historical food heritage and explore initiatives for future sustainable food consumption and production. At present, innovative companies are testing cultivation in a recycled cold store. In the premises, vegetable beds, aquaponics and plant walls are being developed in a small-scale cycle in which nutrients and water are also recycled in a circular cycle. A common IT platform and connection to Stockholm’s open district heating network make it possible to recover residual energy.
