RESEARCH ON RENTAL FLATS ASSIGNED USING A LOTTERY

Alive Bostad AB has begun building 162 rental apartments in Rosendal in southern Uppsala. The goal is to offer apartments to young adults (18–35) with about 30 per cent lower rents than equivalent housing. The buildings, designed by Tengbom arkitekter, are being built from wood, and the apartments will be assigned using a lottery.
