1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Looks fantastic, going to steal some inspiration from this design for this Urban Planning project I'm doing in school.

    Those people on the roof of that condo block seem to have a lot of preppy white people fun.

    Don't the North American style of urban planing / design will most likely score you a low grade in Sweden.

    Potsnu congrats on the townhouse.

    We're actually moving away from shared garages and trying to incorporate more creative roof-solutions (including "pulling in" the top floor) here in Sweden too what with the huge need of more apartments and limited spaces that are still relatively close to the city, so I honestly wouldn't be surprised to start seeing more designs like that.

    This is also the very first course I have on this subject so it's still pretty lenient.

    I'm not talking about the design, as that is fairly common already. I'm talking about the gross developed area and footprint of the building is too large for what is allowed. Most places only allow a gross developed area of 150-180% of the site and a foot print of 40%.

    Ah my mistake, you are probably right about that
    (though I've heard they're raising what is allowed regarding that too to try and fullfill the aforementioned housing needs, but it'll probably be a while still until anything noticeable happens)

    I'm not seeing that happen outside highly urbanized areas like downtown areas, where Oscar Properties Norra Tornen and Sereneke Karlatornet is already under development. The building rights there are also too expensive to solve the problem of housing shortages.

    If you increase the developed area, the apartments will become darker, which will affect pricing, it's also very very expensive to build up and if I remember correctly Sweden also only has a gross developed area of 2%, so it's not really needed yet.

    Yeah no I meant downtown areas too, if you go a bit outside of town there's obviously lots of space for development (I think it's Knivsta they for example currently are pitching hard on the radio)

    But atleast here in Uppsala where there's such a huge amounts of students they are tearing down old buildings left and right to make room for both student-housing and small apartments, both of which I'm pretty sure have both higher developed areas and footprints than what was the norm say, 5 years ago.
    (Not to say they're as high as some places in the US but increasing nonetheless)
