Results 2017

The sustainability programme for Stockholm Royal Seaport is based on five strategies for sustainable urban development. The five strategies are Vibrant city, Accessibility and proximity, Resource efficiency and climate responsibility, Let nature do the work and Participation and consultation. These were ratified by the Stockholm City Council in 2017. The aim of the strategies is to ensure that the area is developed sustainably over time.

Vibrant City

Public spaces – streets, parks and city squares – are important meeting places. A variation of spaces is planned – intense and busy walkways, as well as peaceful and quiet settings. The different spaces form a network that connects both internally and with surrounding areas, favouring of security and equality.

When the urban structure is in place, physical barriers will be removed and walkways built. The area's unique qualities and planned destinations in naturally appealing locations also attract people who do not live in the area. Striving for a mix of housing, offices, retail and public services combined with well-designed public spaces create conditions for a lively atmosphere between the buildings.

Key figures 2017
  • 45 percent condominiums and 55 percent rental apartments
  • 2525 apartments are now occupied
  • 33 square meters open space per apartment
  • 12 percent commercial floor area
  • 3.9 kilometers of waterline will have public access
  • 91 percent feel safe in Stockholm Royal Seaport compared with an average of 71 percent for the City of Stockholm

Accessibility and proximity

A prerequisite for transport planning in Stockholm Royal Seaport is the implementation of a transport hierarchy. Because of proximity to services in the local area, and a clear connection between the area and a coherent urban fabric, walking or cycling become more convenient. This creates more sustainable travel patterns and the area is perceived as safer and more accessible.

Key figures 2017
  • A total of 426 children are enrolled at 7 preschools
  • 2.1 bicycle parking spaces per apartment on property level, and 0.15 per apartment in public spaces
  • 0.46 car parking spaces per apartment on property level, and 0.1 per apartment in public spaces
  • 27 carpool parking spaces, representing 10% of the total number of on-street parking spaces
  • Every 7th parking space on property level in Norra 2 has one electric vehicle charging point and every 10th parking space in public spaces has an electric vehicle charging point
  • In 2017, co-loading via the CCC reduced the number of truckload movements through the area by 1,760. The co-loading effect is 60 percent

Resource efficiency and climate responsibility

The built environment is robust over time which requires that buildings and facilities are designed with high quality. Materials, water and energy are resources that must be used efficiently by, for example, creating eco-cycles. Using non-hazardous materials reduces impacts on human health and the environment. The generation and use of renewable energy is encouraged to make the area fossil fuel-free.

Key figures 2017
  • The energy consumption is 40 percent lower than the BBR requirements
  • 100 percent of the properties are connected to a vacuum waste collection system and 100% of kitchens have a waste disposal unit
  • The amount of residual waste in 2017, 215 kg/apart./year compared with 242 kg/apart./year in 2015
  • 22 percent of the soil has been remediated so far, equating to 40 football fields
  • 28 percent fill material has been re-used in 2017

Let nature do the work

In the planning process for Stockholm Royal Seaport, water and green structures have been designed to provide important ecosystem services, such as flood protection, temperature regulation, recreation, greater biodiversity and strengthened dispersal patterns for key species. Parks, courtyards and other spaces form a green structure that helps to create a more resilient urban district.

Key figures 2017
  • 100 percent of apartments have access to a park and natural environment within 200 metres
  • 5.5 hectares of park have been built. Divided between 2,500 apartments, amounts to 22 square meters apartment
  • Total 447 newly planted trees and 25 tree species
  • Green roofs corresponds to 2 football fields
  • Green courtyards correspond to 4 football fields
  • Parks, etc. correspond to 7 football fields

Participation and consultation

The sustainable city can only be created by cooperation between residents and businesses, the City's administrations and companies, property owners, academia and other stakeholders. The parties are engaged, and invited to take part in dialogue, in order to shape and manage Stockholm Royal Seaport together.

Research and development projects contribute to solving complex challenges, working across organisational boundaries, and developing sustainable and innovative solutions. The projects also contribute to sharing knowledge and best practices between the various areas. The lessons learned are thus taken forward into other projects.
