Stockholm Royal Seaport’s sustainability profile has been tracked since 2015. The progress is disclosed in the sustainability- and result reports.
The monitoring report, i.e. this document, will be in digital format from this year onward.
In the monitoring report the Stockholm Royal Seaport outlines the work put in over the year to achieve its high set sustainability requirements. As the district develops and more results become available, the city hopes to share lessons learnt.
The statistics gathered will also form a basis for developing knowledge, and exchanging views within the building and construction sector.
When the development of Stockholm Royal Seaport commenced there was no official commitment to sustainability or a sustainability profile. Therefore, the first two phases, Norra 1 and Västra, have voluntary sustainability commitments.
The third phase, Norra 2, was the first phase with mandatory sustainability requirements. The developers generally achieve the sustainability requirements except for requirements on reducing construction waste and metered energy performance 2 years after occupation.
You can find more information about how we work in the Sustainability Report 2018.
In total, 2,700 homes, seven preschools, and premises for offices and retail have been built to date. About 300,000 m2 of land has been remediated and 50,000 m2 of parks have been built, which is the equivalent surface of seven football grounds. Approximately 500 trees from 25 species have been planted, and some large trees have been relocated.
By 2030, at least 12,000 new homes and 35,000 workplaces will have been built. There is ongoing planning and discussions with about 30 developers regarding new blocks of housing, offices, and retail.
The city has several large ongoing contracts for land remediation, construction of quays, streets and parks. The interactive map below shows various forms of sustainability data related to developers and the city’s public spaces and facilities. For example, the map shows how the dispersal zones are connected within the area, and to the adjacent Royal National City Park, as well as building energy performance showing both metered and calculated data, bicycle parking spaces etc.
The development phases Norra 1 and Västra had already come a good bit into the planning process when the decision on the sustainability profile came. Therefore they are based on voluntary commitments.
The property developers for the first phase Norra 1, jointly plant an oak tree as a symbol for the construction start-up.
The first occupancy in the new housing units in Norra 1. The phase comprises of 670 housing units and two preschools with 7 departments.
The City of Stockholms implemented for the first time a land allocation competition for a fixed price with a selection of architectural quality and sustainability criteria.
The programme connects sustainable development targets with the urban planning principles. The programme originates from the ‘The City of Stockholm, 2040 Vision’, and the global sustainability goals. The work is based on five strategies, involving ecological, economic and social aspects.
The competition was evaluated , among other things, on social aspects.
Now the development is reaching Gasverket which means taking further steps in the transformation from closed industry to open city.
