The plan emphasises public space and an active city centre, by enhancing the existing square and its two main axes with plantings, new shops and cafes and new central town hall. An existing disused freight terminal along the fjord is proposed transformed into a youth activity centre, as a venue contributing new opportunities and activating the waterfront.
In addition the urban renewal plan contains several features that can help to create activity and life, such as a kindergarten, playgrounds, hotel, gym and coffee shop. Wide sidewalks and new footpath shortcuts through green courtyards make walking a more attractive alternative. A long fjord promenade and a guest marina are part of the new waterfront.
