NRE Denmark A/S has completed the construction in the first stage of a large urban development project, by AP Pension, on Søtorvet in central Silkeborg. Where a number of ecolabeled apartments will be built. With the first stage of the construction done, 76 rental and 37 owner-occupied flats, located in three towers, are now ready for the new residents.

The apartments range from 60-163 square meters and contain between 1 and 4 rooms.

NRE Denmark A/S, who handle the construction of AP Pension’s buildings on Søtorvet, are pleased that the first towers are now completed.

“Søtorvet is an incredibly exciting urban development project with its unique location between the historic paper factory and Silkeborg Langsø. A leading project which also reflects the development that Silkeborg, as a city, is experiencing in these years. We are pleased that we have now delivered the first part of the project, and we look forward to continue our good collaboration with AP Pension on the upcoming stages of construction.”, says Jacob Eiskjær Olesen, CEO and partner in NRE Denmark

All the apartments will be labeled with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, and the CEO of AP Ejendomme, Peter Olsson, is pleased that the first residents can start moving in.

“It is a beautiful building, that stands here completed, and we are very happy with the work that NRE Denmark delivers. Søtorvet has a central location in Silkeborg, and the future residents will live in the heart Silkeborg with the best that the city has to offer, such as its beautiful nature and inspiring shopping opportunities.” says Peter Olsson and continues:

“There is great interest in living in Søtorvet. We have already rented out most of the apartments, as well as sold a large part of the owner-occupied flats. That shows us that we have seen and done something right in building our urban development project.” says Peter Olsson.

With the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, the buildings live up to a number of requirements in relation to the indoor climate and building materials, for the benefit of both the environment, climate and the residents. Among other things, it has demands for substances that are harmful to the environment and health in both building materials and chemical products.

Ecolabeling Denmark, who are responsible for the certification of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, are happy that AP Pension’s buildings in Silkeborg are ecolabeled.  

“By getting Søtorvet certified with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel, AP Pension shows, once again, that they are at the forefront when it comes to building sustainable housing. Buildings with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel are better for both the environment and the residents, as they live up to strict requirements in their entire life cycle and, amongst other, are characterized by a good indoor climate.”, says Martin Fabiansen, manager of Ecolabeling Denmark.
