The year started with brand new shops.
Among others, tasty Noodle Mama and Honey Comb. On the first floor, Kicks opened their doors, and were followed by sourdough bakery Lydecker & Boussard. In addition, Habitat opened up on two levels followed by vintage home décor boutique Millicent Living.
In the Spring, popular Vapiano opened their fourth Stockholm restaurant in Skrapan. And from the beginning of the year delicious Asian food could be enjoyed at restaurant Pong. With these new additions, Skrapan further offered the people of Södermalm an inviting environment to shop, eat and drink.
Skrapan celebrated five years as a shopping galleria and student apartments. The celebration included various well visited events and a new attractive website.
Skrapan turns galleria.
Skrapan opened up as a galleria in 2007 with around 9000 square meters of retail space, 7000 square meters of commercial office space and 496 square meters of living space. Over 30 shops, cafés, restaurants, service providers and an aerobics gym were established. The central location and retail mix immediately attracted many visitors of different ages and interests.
STUDENTSKRAPAN. After The Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) moved, Skrapan was renovated to give room for student apartments. With this change, the building received a new nickname: Studentskrapan. With the renovation, two additional floors were added, making the building 26 stories (86 meters) tall. Skrapan now housed around 600 people.
Skatterskrapan is inaugurated.
In 1960, the building was erected to serve government municipalities and tax agencies. The building was head office for The Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) in Stockholm for a long period of time. With its 24 stories, it was also known as Europe’s tallest building.
Skrapan is built.
Skrapan was originally designed by architect Paul Hedqvist in modern international style. Hedqvist was inspired by Mies van der Rohes skyscrapers in the US and by Italian office buildings. The building is constructed as a cross, allowing light from all angles to enter the building and create bright interior spaces.
