Citygate is an office building that is characterized by openness and innovative thinking, one that wants to lead the way to true sustainability, both ecologically and socially. This ethos permeates everything here from the building’s architecture and technology to its offerings and amenities. But you can also see it in our deep commitment to a number of other projects in Gothenburg that aim to reduce alienation among young adults. In other words, Citygate is no ordinary office building. It is so much more. Or as we like to say: It’s a place with values.
What does your office space say about you? The fact is that a building can say a great deal about you as a company. Citygate is an office building that takes sustainability to a whole new level. It cares about its tenants and strives to make Gothenburg an even better city to live and work in.

Bike, light rail, bus, or car
Citygate is strategically located at the Ullevi junction in the Gårda district, directly adjacent to the E6/E20 highway. It’s easily accessible by any form of transportation. By car, just exit the highway and park. By bike it takes less than 10 minutes from downtown, and you can ride straight into the building and park in our big bike garage. It holds 500 bikes, with showers and changing rooms and even a bike repair shop. Light rail, bus, and commuter rail links are walking distance away, which makes it easy to get to and from Citygate in the most sustainable way.
Close to everything in Gårda
Citygate is a new meeting place in Gårda, an attractive district with big plans to expand right alongside Gothenburg’s major event venues. There are going to be new hotels, residential buildings, and offices in the years ahead. Gårda is already a vibrant area full of businesses, schools, restaurants, cafés, and shops. And the Mölndal river runs along the length of the district, offering beautiful and relaxing places to stroll.
