Stora Ursvik is a neighborhood in the municipality of Sundbyberg, just north of Stockholm city centre.
The district is often called Stora Ursvik but the area is marketed as Ursvik - the city's green corner.
The construction work started prior to making the decision that the area would have a vacuum waste system. This means that the whole area is not connected to the vacuum waste system. It is specifically the part of the area consisting of small houses (villas and terrace houses) that is not connected.
To meet Sundbyberg municipality's high environmental standards, the building will be environmentally classified and certified under BREEAM, with the goal of achieving "Excellent" rating.
Other waste fractions such as glass, cardboard and metal is left at recycling stations.
