Well-established retail park

Located just outside Linköping city center, Tornby Handelsgårdar has emerged gradually. The area is currently the municipality’s largest cohesive workplace, comprising 350 hectares, with about 450 companies established here. Tornby was originally designated as a traditional industrial area, but the northwestern part was subsequently developed into one of Sweden’s largest external retail centers.

Several megastores and well-known chain stores are located here, including IKEA, Biltema, Jula, ICA Maxi, Coop Forum, Systembolaget (Swedish Alcohol Retailing Monopoly), Stadium, SIBA, Toys R Us, Bauhaus, XXL, Elgiganten, and Babyproffsen, as well as the Ikano House shopping center. The retail park is gradually expanding eastward.

Built for customers and employees

Tornby Handelsgårdar is home to modern, flow-efficient premises that offer a pleasant atmosphere for customers and employees alike. The premises are environmentally certified according to the meticulous requirements of the BREEAM environmental certification system. Opening a business in an environmentally certified property is not only good for the environment, but also benefits you and your employees by providing a healthy indoor climate and reducing energy consumption.

Region under continuous development

Nestled in the beautiful Östgöta plains is Sweden’s fifth largest municipality: Linköping. With a population of approximately 600,000, Linköping/Norrköping is the fourth most densely populated region in Sweden. It is in this location that Sweden’s fourth metropolitan area, East Sweden, is being developed.

Linköping offers a range of activities to visitors: Test flights of the JAS 39 Gripen fighter jet at the Swedish Air Force Museum; a tour of the Computer Museum, IT-ceum; and works of art in the Passagen art gallery and the Östergötland Museum. Why not devote a morning to culture, have some coffee and cake on the grass by Kinda Canal and then round it off with an afternoon of shopping at the Tornby Retail Park?

The area around Tornby Handelsgårdar offers ample services, all in one location, from restaurants and cafés, hotels and conference facilities to gym facilities, an indoor playland, auto repair shops, IKEA, banks, a post office, pharmacies, Systembolaget and various food stores.

Environmental and economic sustainability

Today, environmental compatibility is interlinked with profitability, and environmental certification will serve as your objective guarantee. Your environmental responsibility generates profitability in the form of lower energy costs, a stronger brand and satisfied employees who are content with their workplaces.

Environmental certification – an objective guarantee

To be able to ensure outstanding environmental performance, we have chosen to use the international environmental certification system BREEAM. The system adopts a holistic approach to the building and the surrounding environment. To be approved for BREEAM certification, a building must be evaluated with respect to a number of established benchmark values, including energy and water consumption, indoor climate, pollution, transport, building material, waste management and property-management processes. The aspects that are evaluated include energy and water consumption, indoor climate, pollution, transport, building material, waste management and property-management processes. 

The aim is to achieve the lowest possible environmental impact throughout the building’s entire lifetime. In this context, we take a holistic approach, in which function and financial parameters are intertwined with sustainability aspects, such as environmental considerations and social responsibility. Green leases are a concrete expression of our shared goal of making a greater difference. Together we can develop work environments that last.
