En stadskärna för Nacka (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Currently the fast-growing municipality of Nacka lacks a strong city core with the mix of functions, an efficient public transport and options for densifying what is already built. By analyzing the processes that a new metro line would bring, the strategy was proposed to identify the city core of Nacka, and consider different options of densification and mixed-use. The research states that a city core for Nacka cannot be found at one particular place but could be several different spots working together. Since the municipality of Nacka does not have a street with a city look, there are no activities at the street level that would encourage people to stay in the municipality and walk or bike there. Värmdövägen road, when converted into the city venue should link Sickla Köpkvarter with Nacka Forum to form a continuing city core. New development, together with already active shopping malls, would provide the mix of functions, raise the density, and guarantee flows of people. Sickla Köpkvarter is chosen as a starting point to test the strategy in steps. Development happens in stages. Different architects and real estate companies should be involved in order to create interesting and diverse environment. A unique character for the area should be created in order to make the municipality of Nacka more recognizable as sustainable, diverse, and mixed.

Abstract [sv]

Nacka kommun växer i dagsläget snabbt, men saknar en stark stadskärna och effektiv kollektivtrafik. Med utgångspunkt i de processer som en ny tunnelbanelinje till kommunen skulle medföra föreslås en strategi som innebär att en stadskärna i Nacka identifieras och olika förtätningsalternativ studeras. För nuvarande har inte Nacka kommun en tydlig stadsmässighet; det saknas aktiviteter som uppmuntrar människor att spendera tid i, eller att ta sig till kommunen. Genom att Värmdövägen omvandlas till en stadsgata som kopplar ihop Sickla Köpkvarter och Nacka forum, skapas en kontinuerlig stadskärna som tillhandahåller en blandning av funktioner och höjer tätheten. Sickla Köpkvarter väljs som en utgångspunkt för att testa strategin stegvis. Utvecklingen sker i etapper. Olika arkitekter och fastighetsbolag involveras för att skapa intressanta och varierande miljöer. En unik karaktär för området bör skapas för att Nacka kommun ska bli mer hållbar, mångsidig och blandad.
