Our story

Porten Development is a 21st century ‘niche’ developer. Our motto: the future is ours. Using our more than 25 years of experience, and planning at least 5 years ahead, we aim to make a tailor-made contribution to a sustainable future.

A sustainable future is a future in which our children can happily live and play. A future in which everyone can enjoy an optimal work-life balance. A future in which our elderly citizens have a comfortable place to retire, within the very community to which they devoted their working lives. In short: a future for all of us.

Therefore, Porten has been focusing on office and residential projects since 2010, including apartments, student housing, and extended-stay hotels. We have been working mainly in Sweden and the Netherlands, particularly within the great Randstad metropolis (Amsterdam, Haarlem, Leiden, The Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Zaandam), but we have an international scope.

Inspired by climate challenges, we wish to develop state-of-the-art, sustainable, and therefore zero-energy buildings and areas where people can thrive. We invest in carbon neutral solutions, but also in next generation air and lighting technologies. We believe it pays to invest in the future today, since we feel that this is the only way forward. Climate issues can be solved. Together.

For this, teamwork is essential. That is why we only work with partners that are pure specialists. Knowing the market and understanding investors’ demands, a clear view of risk-return, combined with an in-depth technical and design know-how are crucial, too.

Most important of all is a shared ambition which drives all parties contributing to the project.

In fact, our name says it all. Porten is the Swedish word for ‘gateway’, and we commit ourselves every day to be the gateway to a better future.

We wish to develop state-of-the-art, sustainable living areas where people can thrive
