International Real Estate Company invest in Malmö harbour

MG Real Estate buys land in Malmö Industrial Park, located in Malmö’s Northern Harbour, to build a logistics and office facility.

The plot covers about 66,500 square meters and is sold for SEK 73,300,000. The sale means that 160 new jobs will be created. The establishment is also expected to contribute to increased employment throughout the port area and in Malmö.

Malmö needs a broader labor market in warehousing, logistics, volume trading and industry.

“The establishment of MG Real Estate is a good thing for the entire port development. On one hand, jobs are created in the property, but more jobs will also be created in industries linked to logistics and transport as well as other businesses throughout Malmö. It also strengthens our port company, Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP)” says Andreas Schönström Deputy Mayor for for land procurement, City of Malmö.

Malmö Industrial Park is an expansive industrial area in southern Sweden. It is in the middle of the Greater Copenhagen Region and the sites are directly connected to Copenhagen Malmö Port’s (CMPs) facilities. MG Real Estate is the first foreign company to make a land reservation in the area.

“This shows that Malmö’s port is to be counted on in the international arena. I believe that the interest in Malmö as a logistics hub will continue to increase, partly for its great location but also due to partnership opportunities with the harbor and other companies in the area”, says Andreas Schönström.

MG Real Estate is currently establishing a Scandinavian subsidiary that will continue its expansion in the Nordic region.

“MG Real Estate has been present in Denmark for almost 3 years. Based on this success and the demand from our clients, we want to expand to the rest of the Nordics, and more specific, to Sweden. With this reservation, we will demonstrate that this strategic hotspot at Malmö Industrial Park will best serve the needs of our clients in the region. We see this development creating new opportunities and growth for our client’s businesses and also strengthening the importance of the Malmö harbor for the whole region as a multimodal logistic hub.”, Anton Van Vlerken, Chief Country Officer – Netherlands and Nordics, MG.

The city of Malmö works closely together with Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) in the development of Malmö Industrial Park.

The Northern Harbour – Malmö Industrial Park
Malmö Industrial Park is an expansive industrial area in southern Sweden. It is located in the middle of the Greater Copenhagen Region, which is the Nordic region’s largest labor market region and most densely populated metropolitan area. At the site, companies in manufacturing, processing and distribution are offered centrally located industrial land. In addition, the sites are directly connected to Copenhagen Malmö Port’s (CMPs) facilities, where the trimodal logistic solutions, such as train, road and sea traffic, are effectively linked. The City of Malmö is working for a sustainable port and industrial operations. The city collaborates with the operations in the port area to find smart solutions in recycling, logistics and energy, so-called industrial symbiosis. Companies that establish in the Malmö Industrial Park area will contribute to increased employment opportunities, strengthening the port’s operations and increasing freight volumes over the quay.
