Våghuset, Masthuggskajen, Göteborg

Flexible and sustainable office buildings are a key component of the development that sees Järntorget merge with downtown Gothenburg to form a whole new district. Masthuggskajen is an area buzzing with life and creativity!

Masthuggskajen – part of the sustainable city

The neighborhood around Järntorget has a proud tradition of trade that in recent years has been augmented by a real urban buzz in the form of restaurants and a rich offering of cultural experiences. A whole new city district is taking shape here, a vibrant place that is perfect for businesses reliant on creative input and energy.


With Våghuset and its neighboring property Brick Studios now complete on Masthuggskajen in Gothenburg, attention has turned to NCC’s third office block, Habitat 7 – a unique timber-framed structure across eight floors that is being build on Masthamnsgatan, immediately after Våghuset and Brick Studios. 

Våghuset has already established itself as one of the city’s new landmarks, and all the office space in the building has been let, with PwC and Mannheimer Swartling both locating their Gothenburg offices here, for example.

When developing a new property, NCC draws on such diverse fields as sociology and cognitive science, organization studies, environmental technology and medicine. Carefully considered premises that are tailored to the tenant result in healthier, more productive employees and stronger customer relations. In short – better business. 


With an abundance of public transportation on the doorstep, getting to Masthuggskajen sustainably is easy. Access by bicycle has been planned in from the start and Järntorget is served by trams heading in four directions. Haga station on the West Link rail line is close by and ferry services are planned for the waterfront.

Sustainable development

Masthuggskajen is one of 12 pilot projects in Sweden that are leading the way on sustainable building. In November 2018, Masthuggskajen became Sweden’s first urban development project to be awarded Citylab certification. In addition, the project was named Citylab Project of the Year 2020 for its sustainability work. Find out more about the development of the new Masthuggskajen district.
