For more than a thousand years Skien has been a meeting place for people and trade. Today Skien municipality and other businesses are working to transform the city center into a more attractive area to work and live. This coincides well with R8 Property's ambitions and intentions: We are city patriots, have faith in Skien, and want to contribute to growth in the city. The investment in Centrumgården is a direct action to do this.
After setting a Norwegian record for a rehabilitation project of this magnitude, the tenants could move into brand new and modern premises in Centrumgården in Torggata 8 in the summer of 2016. The rehabilitation was designed as a commercial building in energy class B. Architects and consultants have done a formidable job to meet the strict requirements for such buildings.
Centrumgården has become a contemporary and modern office building for tenants and around a hundred employees.
The property is closely located to public transport. Skien bus station is only 50 meters and a maximum of a 1-minute walk from the property, making the bus offer to Centrumgården extremely good. This includes regional and long-distance express buses such as Timeekspressen and buses to Torp Sandefjord Airport and local lines such as M1, M2, M3, P4, P5, P6, and P7.
For those who prefer to travel by train, Skien station is located just north of the city center. There are trains to Oslo S, Gardermoen, Hamar / Lillehammer, Porsgrunn, and Notodden. The station is only 3 minutes by car and 16 minutes walk from Centrumgården. Regional train lines are R11, R11X, and the Bratsberg line.
At Torp Sandefjord Airport, there are excellent flight connections, both nationally and internationally. Travel time is approx—50 minutes by car
