Lively ground floors and modern offices

The commercial areas and business districts have been part of the planning of the area from early on. When shops, restaurants, and other businesses are mixed with residences, it creates a vibrant meeting place for far more than just the residents. 

Tomtebo strand will offer modern spaces for commercial services, offices, research, and education, among others. The commercial areas are planned to be 70,000 square meters in size.

Here, there will be opportunities for both those looking for something smaller and something quite large. The majority of these businesses will be located in a strategically visible location along E4–Kolbäcksvägen

The second phase is estimated to commence in early 2032 and will include approximately 1,000 residences along with several parks such as Sjötorget, Kaninhålet, Kolbäcksskogen, and Vättarnas Park.

A place for associations

Nydala is known for offering an active outdoor life. There are opportunities for associations that want to be active in the area or wish to co-operate with other stakeholders.
