A Visionary Development Plan for a Regional Centre
The region of Stockholm is expected to grow by 30 000 to 40 000 inhabitants every year for the next ten years. Central Haninge - located 20 kilometres south of Stockholm - is perfectly positioned to take opportunity of this growth to develop into an important regional centre in the South East of the Stockholm Region.
In 2016, Mandaworks - in close collaboration with Haninge municipality - outlined a visionary development plan for ‘Haninge City 2050’. The vision combines local centres, strengthens the existing public realm and infrastructure networks and introduces an authentic regional identity.
The Haninge City vision is structured around three anchoring strategies that express a clear approach to development in Haninge over the next 35 years: 1. Dense + Mixed, 2. Connected + Close and 3. Green + Lively. The three strategies combine to shape a tailored and flexible densification plan for the years to come.
The development plan proposes to utilise the City’s plentiful infill opportunities to reinvent and improve the underlying urban structure. Infill is focused in well connected centres and along major connecting streets, while the rich surrounding landscape is pulled into the urban structure in the form of small and large landscape interventions. The result is a resilient development plan that will guide Central Haninge in its transformation to a vibrant and thriving city.

The strategies outline a clear approach for developing the City in the next 35 years
Dense + Mixed
Development is placed to reinvent and strengthen the existing urban structure
From Road to Street
Infill projects replace on street parking locations to transform streetscapes
Connected + Close
Improved pedestrian and cycling networks meet new spaces to create ’urban closeness’
Smaller scale interventions in residential neighbourhoods maintain character, while adding urban qualities
Existing ’middle spaces’ are given new meaning and use through stronger and more defined edges
Green + Lively
The local landscape and public space network is strenghtened and combined to benefit both
The new structure embraces and exposes Haninge’s close relationship with its landscape.
