Abstract
The regional planning office of Stockholm has pointed out eight core suburbs for the transition of suburbs into urban centers. The suburb of Täby is one of these.

The regional planning office of Stockholm has pointed out eight core suburbs for the transition of suburbs into urban centers. The suburb of Täby is one of these. The transition implies changes on the fundamental components of place, the physical setting, its activities and meanings. The changes will affect citizens who spend their everyday life in Täby. Therefore, the essay has its starting point in the notion of place-identity which seeks to understand place from the everyday life of people and their attachment to place. Thus, what is the place-identity of Täby and what does that imply for the transition of Täby from suburb to a regional urban core?

Through a questionnaire directed against Täby citizens the essay explores the place-identity. Täby is seen by its citizens as a close to nature, idyllic villa suburb that suffers slightly from car dependence, absence of city life and a somewhat homogeneous population. With insights from the place-identity of Täby the further analysis concludes Täby has to focus on implementing local nature elements, local character, increased measures for mixed housing and continue the work on an evening economy and city life in the emerging urban core.
