Stockholm is about to get a new, state-of-the-art transit hub. Jernhusen, Sweden’s largest owner, manager and developer of railway properties, has selected the project team led by Foster + Partners, in collaboration with Marge Arkitekter, that includes Thornton Tomasetti for the redevelopment of Stockholm Central Station. Located at the heart of the city, the historic station, which originally opened in 1871, is Sweden’s largest transportation center. With a goal to be the most sustainable transit hub in the world, it will be built largely over existing tracks, the project will combine several modes of transport into a single integrated station and create a new mixed-use district that will tie together the city’s east and west sides. The team also includes LAND ARKITEKTUR, Ramboll, Wenanders and TAM Group. Thornton Tomasetti is leading structural and protective design, in collaboration with Ramboll, and providing blast, façade, vibration and sustainability services for the project.
