Belatchew Arkitekter has, on behalf of Swedish real estate developer Sveafastigheter Utveckling, designed Discus, a new landmark high rise in central Nacka; a booming part of the Stockholm metropolitan area in Sweden.
Discus is a new landmark building in Nacka City, which with its characteristic irregular silhouette is designed to become a symbol of a growing metropolitan area. Discus will be placed in the heart of Nacka’s new public transport node, right above the metro station in Nacka City’s new city center.
Discus will consist of about 30 floors and will accommodate 450 to 500 apartments of different sizes, together with commercial and public facilities, creating an active and vibrant place. Nacka City is the name of the new, dense and mixed-use urban area that is currently being developed in Nacka, Stockholm.
In 2025, the metro will be extended to Nacka with the addition of three new stations. By 2030, 14,000 new homes and 10,000 new workplaces will have been created in Nacka City, and the population of Nacka is expected to have risen from 100,000 to 140,000. Nacka City is to be a close and innovative part of Stockholm – an attractive place to live and work. Source and images Courtesy of Belatchew Arkitekter.
