Solna Station in Stockholm, Sweden is an important public transport node in the city, a hub that will be developed with the future metro and regional train station. The area, located just east of Solna station between Gårdsvägen and Kolonnvägen, is undergoing major development, including the creation of new workplaces and housing. With its central location and attractive setting, the project is an important piece of the puzzle in the development of Arenastaden.
The new area, which is part of the Stigbygeln and Tömmen neighbourhoods, is being developed into a more vibrant and sustainable urban environment that includes a mix of offices and housing while solving today's major rainfall problems. Along Gårdsvägen, life and urbanity will be created through service and retail facilities on the ground floors. The street environment will be designed for cyclists and will be Solna's first so-called 'bicycle street'. Traffic speeds will be reduced by narrowing the lanes and there will be room for greenery and wide footpaths.
