From Vision to Reality : Actors Involvement in Socially Sustainable Urban Development in Kista Business District (English)
Abstract [sv]

Kista kontorsområde är ett etablerat Tech-arbetsplatsområde i norra Stockholm som upplevde sin storhetstid under 90-talet. Idag ser fastighetsägarna anledning att undersöka hur området kan utvecklas för att möta förändrade behov. Det finns flera aktörer som vill vara med i en socialt hållbar utveckling av stadsdelen. 

Uppsatsens syfte är att undersöka vilka visionerna för Kistas kontorsområde är, hur de större aktörerna arbetar för att förverkliga visionen samt hur förändringar för att främja social hållbarhet bidrar till att uppnå visionen.

De metoder som används för att undersöka detta är intervjuer och dokumentstudier. Processerna bakom visionsframtagandet och stadsutvecklingen analyseras med hjälp av Janes Jacobs och Jan Gehls teorier kring stadsutveckling, teorier inom social hållbarhet och framtidsstudier. Den socialt hållbara stadsutvecklingen i Kista kontorsområde analyseras utifrån fem nyckelteman inom social hållbarhet: identitet, kontext, tillgänglighet, inkludering, och variation.

Resultatet visar att det finns ett samarbete mellan de privata fastighetsaktörerna i syfte att skapa och kommunicera en gemensam vision för området, samt att samla och effektivisera resursanvändningen i stadsutvecklingen. Kommunen pekas ut som en viktig samarbetsaktör av de privata aktörerna i detta arbete. Aktörernas gemensamma vision av Kista är en levande och attraktiv stadsdel med blandstadskaraktär, men det saknas en konkretisering av hur denna vision skall uppnås.

Abstract [en]

Kista business district is an established tech-cluster in northern Stockholm which experienced its peak during the 90’s. Today, the real estate owners see a need to explore how the area can be developed to meet a change in needs. There are many actors who want to be part of a socially sustainable urban development of the area.

The aim of the essay is to examine which visions exists for Kista business district, what challenges there are to achieve these, how the prominent real estate actors and Stockholm municipality act in order to pursue the vision, and what socially sustainable urban development in Kista business district is.

The methods that have been used to research this are interviews and a document analysis. The processes behind the production of the vision and the urban development are analysed with the theoretical frameworks of urban development by Jane Jacobs and Jan Gehl, and theories within social sustainability and futures studies. The socially sustainable development of Kista business district is analysed through five key themes within social sustainability: identity, context, accessibility, inclusion, and variation.

The result shows that there is a collaboration between the private real estate actors with the aim to create and communicate a united vision for the area, as well as to concentrate and make the use of resources more efficient within the urban development. In this collaboration, the municipality has been distinguished as an important actor by the real estate actors. A liveable and attractive district with mixed-use characteristics, is the shared vision of Kista business district by the actors. However, how this vision is to be accomplished has not been concretised.
