AP Fastigheter is Swedens largest property company with around 3.4 million m² property floor area and locations in Stockholm, Uppsala, Malmö, Lund and Gothenburg. Office and retail buildings dominate the building stock of AP Fastigheter. AP Fastigheter owns, manages and constructs buildings.

This building makes up a small part of the commercial centre (Östra) Nordstaden (East North City) that was constructed in the late 1960s. By that time Nordstaden was the largest commercial mall in Sweden.

Building concept
The building has 13,640 m² heated floor area and seven floors including the basement. The floor area is about 60% offices and 40% retail space (shops).
Nordstaden has been refurbished during the latest years and the refurbishment is still ongoing.

HVAC concept
The building is served by six air handling units with variable air volume flow rates (VAV). They all have 100 % outdoor air with air-to-air heat recovery equipment, mainly run-around loop heat exchangers. Typically the heating and cooling is also connected to this loop.
