“Hammarby Sjöstad” in Yantai, China
A new district is being built in the large coastal city of Yantai, 750 km east of Beijing. The first stage comprises 2,000 homes and a total of approximately 50,000 apartments, ie a district about four times as large as Hammarby Sjöstad.
The customer is White Peak Real Estate, a Swedish-owned company that in a short time has become the largest European urban developer in China. White Peak and Yantai city has chosen Hammarby Sjöstad as a model for this project. Swedish companies as Sweco, Envac, ABB, Assa Abloy and others contribute to an Eco City Alliance with knowledge and solutions to make this new district an example in terms of sustainable urban development in China.
