Järfälla municipality has now approved Sweden’s perhaps largest zoning plan and design guide: Barkarbystaden 3. The plan allows for approximately 4400 housing units, schools, preschools, retail, local services, sports and a retirement home. It provides the framework for a vibrant public realm, shaping a wide range of public spaces, street, parks and squares. The area connects Barkarbystaden 1 (now under construction) with the nature reserve Järvafältet and Säbysjön in the north, as well as Kyrkbyn in south. It connects the main public transportation hub, Stockholm West (Barkarby station), in the west and the future city center of Barkarbystaden in the east.
The plan for Barkarbystaden 3 is based on the overall masterplan for Barkarbystaden, also by Tovatt Architects and Planners. The office is now working on the next phase of development, called Barkarbystaden 4, containing the most central parts of the district.
