Skovbyen near Søborg will be a new green district where people live and meet, work and play. A safe, secure and green breathing space for residents, neighbours and all citizens of the Municipality of Gladsaxe, providing opportunities for nature walks or participating in activities in the courtyard at the historic Mørkhøjgård.

Since the DTU National Food Institute closed down its activities in Gladsaxe in 2017, the site has been closed to the public. Now the area is being revitalised with around 400 homes for Gladsaxe residents of all ages and life stages. There will also be space for light industry and 450 new parking spaces.

If all goes to plan, construction will begin in 2025, with the first residents moving in two years later. Moreover, not just people but also trees will be “moving in”. For every new home, a tree will be planted to preserve and enhance the woodland and natural beauty of the area.
