Details

A place for life’s adventures.

At Hede commuter station in northern Kungsbacka, we are further developing the urban district of Björkris. This attractive area, with its proximity to nature, will have more housing, services, and facilities for both leisure and socialising. It will be a place to embark on your own adventure. 

With Björkris, the ambition is to create an urban environment that feels both varied and cohesive at the same time. As part of the future Kungsbacka, our intent is to create an innovative place with well thought out and conscious solutions. We want to create opportunities for an active lifestyle, both indoors and outdoors in the beautiful natural surroundings.

It is an area that will become more accessible to many. An exciting part of the city’s vision to offer diversity, an urban vibe and nature to engage and inspire.

Discover adventure. Discover Björkris.

 

"This area will be the best we have ever built." — Anders Börjeson, CEO Trollängen
