GÖTEBORG, Sweden, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Castellum is stepping in as a project partner with the HSB Bostad cooperative housing association for two city blocks of Hagastaden, where Castellum will erect, own and manage all of the commercial spaces. An estimate for the relevant area is 10,000 sq. m.
One of the blocks will contain Jubileumshuset, which is being built in conjunction with HSB's 100th Anniversary, in 2023.

"Taking this new step together results in really exciting opportunities, where Castellum's experience of creating successful and innovative workplaces meets HSB's almost one hundred years of experience in founding and enhancing The Good Home concept. We're developing the next generation's work spaces with useful and effective cooperation tools and efficient services for tackling life's various puzzles. It's a new type of space, where people and companies are invited to grow and develop through new kinds of meeting situations," says Henrik Saxborn, Castellum CEO.
Castellum's digital platform will be utilized for connecting people, whether for booking shared services, such as bicycles or laundry rooms or for ordering the groceries for dinner. Spaces that are used during the day for coworking can do evening service as the dinner table or a party room for kids' birthdays, as a natural extension of the residence.
"We'd like to create a trailblazing residential environment and build a social and digital hub for Jubileumshuset. An inclusive space and a natural meeting-place that will create synergies and added value for all who live, visit or work in the Jubileumshuset building. It feels really inspiring to link arms with Castellum – a sharp commercial player and an exciting work-partner that both complements and challenges us," says Jonas Erkenborn, CEO for HSB Bostad.
