This is Magnolia Bostad's first project in Sundbyberg. About 380 residential units are planned for the neighbourhood and a nursery school for around 75 children. Magnolia Bostad also plans retail premises in connection with the residencies and 168 garage spaces. The buildings will be certified in accordance with the Swedish Green Building Council’s silver certification.Great care has been taken regarding details and materials in the project, which was designed by Lindberg Stenberg Arkitekter. The property is divided by two high porticos and has varying facades combining restaurants, residencies, a nursery school and retail premises. This variety is held together by a clear design, and blends into the central square of the new Ursvik town centre in a natural way.
A turnkey contract has been signed with Mecon Bygg AB and building is scheduled to start at the end of 2020 with occupancy planned in the first half of 2024. After the sale and handover of the project, Magnolia Bostad has a project management agreement with the buyer, which runs until occupancy. The project management agreement is invoiced, and revenue will be recognized on an ongoing basis.
“We are very pleased to be involved in developing sustainable housing in the rapidly expanding residential area of Ursvik,” says Björn Bergman, Eastern Regional Director at Magnolia Bostad.
