Real Estate Department
The Real Estate Department's brief is primarily to manage and develop premises for the City’s own needs, such as office premises, public premises and premises for sports and culture.
The Real Estate Department manages and develops a unique, exciting property portfolio that is important for Stockholm’s residents, businesses and visitors. Our property portfolio includes everything from fire stations to castles, villas and small cottages out in the countryside. We also manage areas of nature and outdoor recreation areas outside the municipal boundary.
The elected representatives on the Real Estate Committee make decisions on how the City should work in this area. The Real Estate Department must then execute the Committee’s decisions.
The organisation consists of the Director of Real Estate and four divisions:
- Operational Support
- Finance Division
- Real Estate Division
- Project Division.
The Real Estate Department has just over 160 employees, and the work of the Department is led by Director of Real Estate Anders Kindberg and the Heads of Division (the Real Estate Department’s executive team).
The Director of Real Estate reports to the Real Estate Committee when it comes to operations, and has the overall responsibility for financial and operational control, committee and owner issues, as well as the overall responsibility for results and overall policy and strategy issues.
