Stockholm Royal Seaport

Sustainability Report


Here's an overview of all achievements related to the five goals to and including 2022.

1. Vibrant city

1.1 An equal city

52% of the apartments in Stockholm Royal Seaport are rental apartments and 48% are tenant-owned apartments. 8% are student accommo­dation.

Apartment sizes vary as follows: 10% (one-room apartments), 33% (two-room), 29% (three-room), 23% (four-room), and 4% (five-rooms or more)

In all land allocations, there is a requirement to develop concepts for a norm-critical housing design allowing a greater diversity of people.

1.2 Active daily life

To date, 4 squares, 11 parks and playgrounds, 1 outdoor gym, 1 primary school, 10 preschools, 1 sports hall, and 1 library have been built.

16% of public open space is with social values, which corresponds to 26m2 per dwelling. It is 11m2 green oases per resident.

To date commercial space accounts for about 20%.

According to a resident survey from 2019, residents are extremely or fairly satisfied with access to:

  • pre-schools and schools 26%.
  • culture activities 12%.
  • supermarkets 64%.
  • restaurants, cafés etc. 47%
  • squares and meeting places 72%.
  • sports and leisure activities 42%.

1.3 Create spaces that are attractive and safe all day, all year

To date, 11 safety walks have been completed.

The resident survey from 2019, shows that the proportion who feel safe in the area has decreased from 91% in 2016 to 79% in 2019, men and women's responses do not differ.

The Vibrant city strategy contributes to the UN global goals for sustainable development:

2. Accessibility and proximity

2.1 Easy to live without a car

Stockholm Royal Seaport is served by the Stockholm metro, several bus lines and a commuter ferry. In total 8,060 bicycle spaces and 1920 car spaces have been built for 6,970 people. 8% of the car parking spaces on the street are set aside for car pools.

The 2019 residents survey shows that:

  • 66% are satisfied with public transport. This is an improvement compared to 2016 when 42% answered that they were satisfied. Those over 65 are generally more satisfied with public transport than other age groups. More residents are satisfied with the access to walking and cycling paths and the opportunity to walk or cycle to nearby neighborhoods.
  • Safety safety is perceived as good by 55% of cyclists and 59% of pedestrians. Compared to with 43% for pedestrians and cyclists in 2016.
  • 42% use public transport at least five days a week during the winter, which is slightly more compared to 2016 when it was 39%. During the winter months, residents use public transport to a greater extent to get to or from the area. The corresponding proportion during the summer is slightly smaller, probably because the proportion who walk or cycle is often larger.

2.2 Efficient, sustainable freight transport

Locally established Construction Consolidation Centre and Mass Consolidation Centre.

  • Co-loading of the Construction Consolidation Centre is 58% (goal 75%) and full loaded in direct transport is 73% (goal 50%).
  • The Mass Consolidation Centre and the development work that has been done with crushing and bulk materials management close to urban areas have reduced mass transports by 70%.

2.3 Street as a meeting place

Streets for activity and recreation are planned in future stages.

2.4 Five minutes to basic amenities

Everyday services such as a grocery store, preschool and bus stops are within a 5-minute walk.

All residents have a park within 200 metres.

The Accessibility and proximity strategy contributes to the UN global goals for sustainable development:

3. Resource efficiency and reduced climate Impact

3.1 Reduce amounts of waste

To date 29% of the area has been remediated.

900,000 tonnes of excavated materials have been reused in Stockholm Royal Seaport, which means that approximately 60,000 round-trip journeys have been avoided.
