A green, inclusive, dynamic city neighbourhood, and a natural new part of central Gothenburg.


The power to act, attract and have an impact.


A dynamic environment, and a unique blend that has the power to attract and brighten internationally.

North of the river, a brand new part of Gothenburg’s new city centre is emerging. A dynamic mixed city with a varied range of homes and offices, shops and services, culture, restaurants, cafés and parks. A vibrant city neighbourhood that’s open to everybody and puts people at the centre – with access to activities, meeting-places and green areas, close to the water. Backaplan of the future is part of the RiverCity Gothenburg Vision, which aims to strengthen the city centre and link the city across the river.

A neighbourhood designed for future needs

Thanks to the unique opportunity to build a city neighbourhood from scratch, everything is in place to ensure that homes, street spaces and green areas are designed in a way that meets future needs for accessibility, diversity and sustainability. A varied offering will make the urban environment active and vibrant. The location allows an openness towards the world around, with plenty of smooth connections and good communications.

A green and varied city

Backaplan of the future will be a place with a good foundation for recreation and movement. The Kvillebäcken stream runs through the area and is surrounded by greenery and vegetation. A large district park is being planned, as well as four smaller parks close to the homes in the quarters. It will be a green neighbourhood with room for play, picnics, exercise and spontaneous sports.

The powerful city

The powerful city is based on the desire to develop a space for everybody, designed according to people’s needs. Together we create attractiveness in everything we do, since engagement and the power to act are keys to success and realisation.
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.”

“RiverCity Gothenburg will be open to the world. It will be inclusive, green and dynamic. It will be designed in a way that connects the whole city, embraces the water and reinforces the regional centre.”
