The construction of the 129 apartments at Rosenlundsparken on Södermalm stopped completely in the spring after Byggbolaget BTH was granted corporate restructuring and withdrew. The building, which would have been completed in the autumn, is today an empty construction site with half-finished houses and the date of move-in has not yet been set.

To complete the construction, Stockholmshem will employ several contractors.

- It's positive for us. We gain greater control over the subcontractor, but at the same time we have greater coordination responsibility, says Åsa Stenmark Head of Communications at Stockholmshem.

No occupancy date set

Procurement that would be ready during the summer has been delayed, but according to Stockholmshem, all procurement should be completed in September.

- The idea is that production will start again in October, but no move-in date has yet been set. All procurement must be ready before we know when it is ready to move in, says Åsa Stenmark.

Locked at the offer

Despite the delays, according to Stockholmshem, there is a great interest in the apartments.

- There are 16,000 who have shown interest in the 78 apartments that have been out. Most people who have accepted yes have chosen to wait until the apartment is ready. Only a few have refused, says Åsa Stenmark.

How much delays will cost Stockholmshem is unclear, but according to the housing company, the delay will not affect rents.
