In the district, Laugardalur you will find one of the largest industrial and commercial areas in the city of Reykjavík. Developed at a time when Reykjavík was advancing as a small town and becoming a city while the population was increasing rapidly, Laugardalur became the breeding ground for all kinds of business and commercial solutions.  A development that demanded better transportation, better areas for industry, a larger port, better facilities for sports and recreational activity among many other requirements that surfaced and demanded a solution. This was in the early forties, and most of the projects and buildings were built in the period up until the seventies and eighties. And even today many parts of the area are still seeing new buildings serving new industries, like hotels and office buildings serving the rapidly growing travel industry.

A key district for industry and commerce

There are mainly four areas for the industry and commerce in Laugardalur district. Laugarnes, which probably still has some development potential, Sund where all kinds of companies and the main port of Reykjavík is located, Borgartún, which many consider the center of our small and damaged, but slowly recovering, financial companies, banks and financial institutions and Skeifan which is mainly a commercial area.
