Next year will see major urban transformation in both Kiruna and Malmberget. Decisions made this year will take effect in 2017.

A total of 18 heritage buildings will be relocated. New residential properties are now under development. Families are moving into new homes. Many buildings are being demolished in areas that are subject to the urban transformation. Preparatory work for new roads and other infrastructure, as well as planning of new areas, will proceed. At the same time, land in other areas will be redesignated for industrial use.

“A lot will happen within a very short period. The various activities have to be strictly coordinated. These changes must be realized responsibly as the new communities take shape,” says Stefan Hämäläinen, LKAB’s manager for urban transformation.
