BACKAPLAN: A FUTURE VISION
A green, inclusive, dynamic city neighbourhood, and a natural new part of central Gothenburg.
THE POWER TO BRIGHTEN
A neighbourhood for future needs
Building a city neighbourhood from scratch means being able to ensure that homes, streetscapes and green areas are designed in a way that meets future needs for accessibility, diversity and sustainability. Our objective is a neighbourhood with fewer cars that offers 24-hour living, and where culture, commerce, services and care are all accessible in the immediate area. Once complete, Backaplan will provide housing, workplaces and recreation for around 20,000 people.
Part of RiverCity Gothenburg
Backaplan is a part of RiverCity Gothenburg, a vision and roadmap for Gothenburg’s development. The aim is for The Future Backaplan to develop into a vibrant, green, densely built-up mixed city neighbourhood, with easy links to the city across the river. The proximity to water and greenery is an important aspect in the area’s design.
The powerful city
What we do gets noticed and creates impact.
Backaplan: a future vision
“Fusing the city together across the river creates a multifaceted place that will be seen and have an impact. Backaplan of the future highlights the power of the people who live and work here. A dynamic environment and city neighbourhood, and a natural new part of central Gothenburg on the water.
Backaplan of the future creates the power to brighten and attract internationally with its unique mixed-use character. It will be a gateway to one of the most attractive city regions in Europe.”
