The city of Stockholm will receive close to 3,000 newly arrived Muslim immigrants. To accommodate everyone, the city has begun to build a modular house, including in beautiful Tantolunden in Södermalm. In total, hundreds of apartments will be built in ten different areas.
The Swedish Migration Board has ordered Stockholm City to accommodate 2,858 newly arrived Muslim immigrants – just for this year. Therefore, the city has decided to construct a series of modular houses, also the interior.
Building permit for a modular house at Tantolunden in Söder has already gained legal force. The building will be completed in 2018 and about 90 so-called Muslim refugees will be accommodated in 22 apartments. Half the park’s parking, between Ringvägen and Tantolunden, will be used for the modular house.
The apartments will go to immigrants who have been granted a residence permit but have not managed to get a home. They are allowed to stay there for seven years.
It will be the very first module house built in the center. But new arrivals have already been placed in central Stockholm, then in old service houses like Winter Customs on Södermalm and Vasen on Norrmalm. The city has also rented private homes and offices for the newly arrived.
The building law at Tantolunden was first appealed by residents to the county administrative board and to the Land and Environmental Court. But all appeals were rejected.
However, Tanto is not alone. Modulhus for new arrivals will also be built in Beckomberga, Grimsta, Hagsätra, Hjorthagen, Skarpnäck, Slakthusområdet, Sätra, Traneberg and Örby. In total, it is about 500-600 apartments, according to DN.
But that’s not all. The city of Stockholm will also establish an establishment plan for each New Zealand, so that he or she can receive language teaching and work.
“This is part of what it takes to enable them to establish themselves in society,” says Anna Mölgård, coordinator of housing for newcomers to the city management office, to Mitti.
Already existing modular houses are located in Fagersjö and Farsta.
