Stockholm City Station breaks ground


The construction of Stockholm’s new City Station is now ready to begin

The building will mark the entrance to Stockholm's inner city center and integrates a train and underground station, a hotel and conference center along with apartments. With stunning rooftop terraces and views of the city, the building will become a meeting place for travelers, hotel guests, residents and locals. The lower floors contain the new underground station, which will form a smooth entrance to all public transport once the City Line is completed.

The start of construction is celebrated with speeches by Kerstin Gillsbro, chairman of the project’s client, Jernhusen, and city building commissioner, Regina Kevius. The building, which is designed by 3XN, will be placed across from Stockholm’s Central Station and is expected to be completed in 2015.
