”Oscar Properties was founded in 2004 with the vision to develop apartments so unique that people would specifically aim for an Oscar Properties building when searching for a new residence. Since then, modern design and architecture has been an essential part of the company’s identity.” Oscar Properties, 2015
The case study has provided important results and conclusions that will illuminate this new wave of gentrification with private development companies in Stockholm. Furthermore, this study will be the base of which further research can investigate the potential effects this trend has to reveal. (Less)
