Stockholm Royal Seaport

Sustainability Report

Close to home and thriving streets

Stockholm Royal Seaport, a dense inner city hub with mixed use facilities, is supported by proximity to private and public amenities and parks. It is a 5-minute walk to get to parks and various everyday amenities such as; shops, pre-schools and bus and metro stops, which corresponds to approximately 400 meters. Other amenities such as indoor and outdoor sports facilities and library are also incorporated.

This plays a key role in the sort of travel patterns that are created. It improves equality because women’s and men’s daily lives and travel patterns differ considerably. It also contributes to increased opportunities for active mobility irrespective of age, disability, or other individual circumstances. It is achieved through cross-departmental planning and close collaboration with private service providers and developers.

Multifunctional public space

The public space is designed with multiple uses in mind, streets and footpaths can be used for children to play on and for people to stroll, the squares are intended as space for people to relax in, public art, but also to hold public events such as flea markets and the visit of the mobile reuse station Pop-Up Reuse.
