New apartment blocks on Nyckelgatan in Sunnanå are currently being planned. There is potential for 100 new apartments on the slope towards Lantmannagatan, but there are no plans for a high-rise building.
A few years ago, a large area in Södra Sunnanå was planned for up to 700 apartments. There were strong protests from the residents of Nyckelgatan against the increased construction in their area.
Gradually, more detailed plans were drawn up, and the latest to be developed is the area right next to Nyckelgatan on the slope down to the city. There, a group of houses is proposed that could be up to five stories high, with a maximum ridge height of 19 meters. Compared to the original plan, the houses will be placed closer together in order to preserve more forest around them. The forest is classified as recreational forest.
There had been talk of a landmark near Karlgårdsleden that would be visible from afar, but this has now been dropped. So five stories will be the tallest building, and since the nearest northern neighbors are far away, it is not expected to cast any shadows on existing homes.
The proposal is out for consultation until November 20.
