NCC to Build 172 Rental Apartments in Tensta
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 SEK 250 million.
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 is located next to a playing field covered with artificial turf and a basketball court, and the center of Tensta is located a five-minute walk away.
“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.
In a joint initiative, Svenska Bostäder, Stockholmshem and Familjebostäder conducted a procurement with the aim of increasing the construction rate and meeting the major need for more rental units in Stockholm. Stockholmshusen was developed in partnership with the procured contractors. The project is characterized by the creation of thousands of new, high-quality rental units at a rapid rate, with a focus on the environment and at a lower cost than other new production.
The official groundbreaking will take place in June 2018. Occupancy is expected to begin in 2021.
