Arlandastad Group is a real estate company that bases its operations on three operating segments – Property Development, Property Management and Operating Companies. The company’s property operations include land acquisitions, planning processes, concepts, renting and construction through to management or divestment. The model is applicable in many places, and Arlandastad Group will be gearing up both its activities in the Arlandastad area, Explore Arlandastad, Skavsta area, Explore Skavsta, and identifying new large projects.
So far, the business has focused on developing and managing a 290-hectare property that serves as the gateway to Stockholm Arlanda Airport. This has occurred by acquiring land, which has since received local zoning and planning approval and been developed, and through the conversion of existing properties that have been repurposed and improved for completely new operations. In 2022, the company took its first step in broadening the project portfolio to more geographies through the acquisition of Stockholm Skavsta Airport with 500 hectares of land. Land with great development potential where the company has the ambition to develop a business and logistics park as well as a photovoltaic park. The area around the airport is being developed through the name Explore Skavsta.
Since the fourth quarter of 2020, two buildings in Explore Arlandastad have been classified as owner-occupied properties where two Group companies, Training Partner and Scandinavian XPO, conduct their main operations. These operating companies contribute to an ecosystem where the whole becomes stronger than the individual operations and thus attract new establishments in the area, which in turn means both that the company can sign leases of higher value than before when a district is gradually being completed and that leasing levels are normally higher than in nearby areas and municipalities. Furthermore, the activities of operating companies, like Training Partner and Scandinavian XPO, lead to more visits to areas and increase demand for related services, which in turn contributes to higher revenue potential for tenants and thus higher revenue for the company in the form of higher percentage leases based on the leaseholder’s monthly sales volumes
An example of Arlandastad g´Group's structured refining concept is Drivelab Stockholm, where various facilities and properties realize an area where players in the automotive industry work for future innovations and solutions.
Arlandastad Group’s management portfolio in Explore Arlandastad consists of Scandinavian XPO, six objects within the DRIVELAB concept, Nybygget, Långtidsparkering P1, and SEBE Flygets Långtidsparkering. The property portfolio includes a land facility located on leased land.

Arlandastad Group owns approximately 111,000 square metres of investment properties in the Arlanda area, which are managed and developed with a focus on long-term strategic cooperation in the area for increased quality and continual development.
The development business is the operational part of Arlandastad Group that handles the “concept development” strategy together with the development of the existing land portfolio owned by the company. Arlandastad Group’s business model is based on controlling the entire value chain from the acquisition of land and planning processes to the development and subsequent management of the properties. As of June 30, 2022, the Group has utilized less than ten percent of the potential building rights in Explore Arlandastad, which consists of approximately 1.3 million sq.m. BTA. Through the acquisition of Skavsta, building rights comprising 540,000 sq.m. BTA have been added to the Group.
