Norra Djurgårdsstaden officially Stockholm Royal Seaport in English is a large area of central Stockholm that is undergoing brownfield redevelopment. The area consists of former harbours and industries. 10,000 dwellings and 30,000 workplaces will be developed in the area up to 2025. The project is part of the Clinton Climate Initiative.
The area is located in the borough of Östermalm.
Norra Djurgårdsstaden is historically a part of Royal Djurgården. Since the 1880s this area was developed into one of Stockholm's largest industrial areas together with its harbour. The direct access to the Baltic Sea was one of the reasons to in 1884 build Värtahamnen. To a beginning, this harbour was mainly used to transporting coal, used as fuel to the local gasworks.
During the start of the 21st century, it was decided for this area to be modernised and the previous industries to be demolished.
The name "Stockholm Royal Seaport" came about during the recent constructions since 2010.
