Abstract
Main title: Trading-intense housing environments. City centers tend to condense – these pieces of land are attractive for many different purposes. Co-using of buildings becomes more and more usual. For instance there are on-going investigations regarding how to create attractive residential environments close to shopping areas with high traffic density. In many places, the vision is a mixed-use neighbourhood – a dense and safe townscape where various activities can take place and give life to the surroundings at all hours. As part of this development there has been introduced a new law in Sweden regarding three-dimensional divisioning of property units, which allows a more flexible and adaptive way of partitioning the ownership.

Main title: Trading-intense housing environments. City centers tend to condense – these pieces of land are attractive for many different purposes. Co-using of buildings becomes more and more usual. For instance there are on-going investigations regarding how to create attractive residential environments close to shopping areas with high traffic density. In many places, the vision is a mixed-use neighbourhood – a dense and safe townscape where various activities can take place and give life to the surroundings at all hours. As part of this development there has been introduced a new law in Sweden regarding three-dimensional divisioning of property units, which allows a more flexible and adaptive way of partitioning the ownership. Backaplan (see keywords at bottom of page) is about to undergo some major changes. This district is since decades a major shopping area for the locals, but now the municipality wants this district to evolve into a nice place to live as well. Therefore the involved parts together want to find a way of creating attractive housing environments, without trespassing on the commercial conditions. First though, for instance, there must be a solution of how to design a safe play area for kids in a traffic-intense environment and close to a large-scale goods reception bay. This issue – and many others – must be mastered in order to keep the investors money from being locked up in other town sectors, where these difficulties do not exist. The unique point of Backaplan is the combination of low exploitation and a location near the city centre. This makes the area interesting regarding city planning. There is really a big potential in these surroundings. There are an infinite number of aspects to consider in the efforts of transforming an entire neighbourhood – the economical, ecological, social and cultural issues among others. Can the existing infrastructure be used? Is the present foundation work dimensioned to bear an increased built area? If so, which benefits can be made thanks to this? These are all important issues in the process of increasing development density in urban environments. Also, the history must be respected. As an example, this is important in order to avoid a devastation of urban environments like the one that was fulfilled in Sweden during the 1960’s and -70's – which maybe was right at that time, but often has been criticized afterwards. The needs and behaviors that in these decades was considered the future, has proved to be quite far from the reality. Obviously there are pros and cons of combining different activities in a specific space. An enhanced land use can generate economical expansion and provide a safer local environment, but achieving this requires a mutual respect as well as a common aspiration of the various operators. There is a possibility to co-operate and create an entirety much stronger than what each part would be able to do alone. Keep in mind though that the needs of today might not be the same as the needs of tomorrow. What makes the conversion of Backaplan so exciting is the fact that there is a distinct and common aspiration from the municipality and the commercial parties to really create an improved town sector. This mutual ambition is essential in order to make a proper final result. Backaplan is in many ways well adaptable for the compacting of urban environments planned to be performed. Keywords: Backaplan (a district in the city of Gothenburg), mixed-use neighbourhood, floor space index, commercial buildings, eco-constructioning, city planning, three-dimensional divisioning of property units, large-scale trading.
