Roskilde - Skousbo

The new urban area of Skousbo in the town of Viby will set new standards for sustainable residential areas. The robust master plan will ensure that Skousbo will have a unique and socially sustainable mix of future residents that will engage in both practical and interest-based local community schemes in Skousbo and in the existing city.

The Skousbo area close to Viby is one of the new large urban development areas in the Roskilde Kommune. The vision is for the development of Skousbo together with the parallel development of the town centre of Viby to create a positive spiral of urban density, combining new residents and a vibrant new town centre. In the long run, the goal is for Viby to become an urban centre of regional importance, joining the other cities surrounding the capital area of Denmark.

To support the vision of creating a new type of residential area, the development of Skousbo will be based on three core values: Freedom, Community and Dynamism.

These three values will ensure that the new residential area is developed in such a way that it is possible to experiment with new ways of living and different types of both practical and interest-based schemes depending on both lifestyle and stage of life; from community trading , livestock rearing and gardening to joint child care, walking groups and dinner clubs. The district will have a strong focus on climate change which will optimize its use of energy and thereby create sustainable solutions.

Roskilde Kommune is already negotiating with investors and developers interested in building in the area. The Sjælland housing association has started land development for a total of 100 residences at Skousbo. 35 of these will be built during stage 1. Upon completion Skousbo will have approximately 950 homes.

The first properties are expected to be sold in 2018 and ready for occupation in 2019 while the remaining residences will be built in the coming years.
