Challenge: You can contribute with ideas and concepts on how to revitalise the urban area surrounding Glostrup train station.
Case: Glostrup was once a thriving commercial centre along a busy railway. But now the city has lost its importance and its train station has developed into an anonymous stopover. There is no longer an obvious connection between the city centre and the train station. Commuters come and leave, but they only use the city sparsely. As a consequence, the urban area around the train station is lacking the ability to attract people.
In 5 to 10 years, the town centre will be improved with new train connections and a new light railway. This entails great potential for urban development. Glostrup believes the new infrastructure can sustain a city growth of at least 5000 citizens and numerous new jobs. However, realising the potential requires effort and planning.
Glostrup is looking for a transformation from a lifeless and discouraging atmosphere with a lack of urban and human qualities to an attractive and welcoming environment where residents and travellers feel welcome and curious to explore the city.
