Hagalund in Space and Time 1
Hagalund Industrial Area
Hagalund Industrial Area which is next door to Hagalund, is soon to be torn down and remodeled to create 4500 housing units. In fact, the process has already started.
The city of Stockholm is building a new subway line that will connect Hagalund to the city, which is to take 8 years to complete - see program here
An architect named Björn Johansson has written a thesis on the area and its transformation, and the proposal was completed some years ago. The central idea is to integrate the businesses together with the new housing and to preserve a large part of the industrial area with the intention of not pushing out all the small businesses and other operations running in the area and seeing if it possible to create a space where these can coexist and create a lively area.
