Start of construction of 75 cooperative apartments in Umami Park
Wallenstam is now starting the construction of 75 cooperative apartments in the first block in Umami Park, Hallonbergen, adjacent to the 147 rental apartments where construction started at the end of last year. During the coming 10-year period, Umami Park will be developed into a lively new area with a broad choice of about 900 apartments in total. Sales of the 75 apartments are expected to begin in 2019.
“We are continuing the development of Umami Park and are happy to now be underway with our first cooperative apartment production in the area. The work is progressing as planned and we are looking forward to the development of future blocks and a larger part of the area taking shape,” says Mathias Aronsson, Vice CEO of Wallenstam.
The 75 apartments range in size from one to three rooms and kitchen, of which the majority will consist of two rooms and kitchen. The housing co-op will also have access to a shared roof terrace. Sales are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2019 with occupation planned later the same year.
The name “Umami” comes from the fifth basic taste, something that everyone recognizes but perhaps cannot define on the spot. All cooperative apartments in the area are named after a taste and will feature their own unique concept. The project, which is now underway is called brf Chili and will feature warm colors and a modern subdued furnishing concept.
The architects for brf Chili are Sandellsandberg architects, which have worked with both the interior and the exterior design. Fojab architects worked more with the surrounding environment in the entire area, where the natural scenery is a source of inspiration. Pocket parks and small squares from the Mediterranean countries are also a model where there is a flexible boundary between outdoors and indoors, cafés and street.
