Hi-Tech Underground Farming

Citycon is a partner in an urban farming project beneath Högdalen Centrum in Stockholm. An underground cargo space at the shopping centre has been converted to a high-technology farming space that can be active all year-round. The goal is to create a small-scale industry and provide local job opportunities. The cafés and retailers in Högdalen Centrum will be able to offer fresh salad and herbs from the shopping centre’s underground farming project. “Cultivating City Bazaars” is a unique collaboration between Nya Rågsveds Folkets Hus, the City of Stockholm, and Citycon, that aims to promote social and sustainable city development by producing local produce and offering job opportunities to long-term unemployed citizens.
