NCC has been commissioned by Svenska Bostäder to build 172 rental apartments in Tensta. The project is part of the joint public utility housing framework agreement for the Stockholmshusen program, in which NCC is one of four contractors. The order is worth approximately €24.1m (SEK 250m).
"This is part of the initiative by the City of Stockholm to commence construction of up to 5,000 new apartments in Stockholm by 2020, and I am very pleased that Tensta in particular and the new Ledinge block will be the first project we will carry out in partnership with NCC with the new Stockholmshusen construction concept,” says Jörgen Holmqvist, Head of Property Development at Svenska Bostäder.
The 172 rental apartments will be built in seven high-rise buildings surrounding a shared yard. Three buildings will be six stories high, and four buildings will be six stories with a daylight basement level. The block will be located next to a playing field covered with artificial turf and a basketball court.
“By being part of the project at an early stage, NCC can ensure good, sustainable housing at lower production costs. In the vicinity, we are currently collaborating with Stockholmshem and Familjebostäder on housing renovations and a new police station, and we look forward to taking part in the continued development of the town, contributing to more rental apartments in partnership with Svenska Bostäder,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building Sweden.
The official groundbreaking will take place in June 2018. Occupancy is expected to begin in 2021.
