A Digital Public Library Located Inside a Stockholm Shopping Mall Opens in August 2014

  • Citycon Oyj considers that social and community engagement is a key growth factor. The company is well on its way to implementing several value-added initiatives in its Kista Galleria shopping centre, in Stockholm, with the addition of Kista Idea City, an extensive, state-of-the-art digital library scheduled to open to the public in August 2014. The library is a key element of Citycon’s on-going programme to nurture stronger community ties, apply principles of sustainability, and further strengthen the financial performance of its largest shopping centre. The company acquired Kista Galleria in January of this year together with the Canadian CPPIB. Investments in the project will total 10 million euros. A joint investment with the City of Stockholm, the 2,400-square-metre library will feature the latest digital technology in addition to traditional books, offering its visitors access to various tablet and other computers, interactive services, and a café.
