Nostalgia but it’s good that the building is being demolished
On Wednesday, Göingehem moved its office to the courtyard in the neighbourhood concerned. Ingvar Holm took the opportunity to drop by when he was out with his dog Bea.
– I don’t live here but in the southern part of Hanaskog, but I was working as an apprentice when they built this, my father built it, Bertil Ljunggren’s Byggnads AB, he says.
”They expect higher standards”Ingvar Holm
Do you think it’s sad that the building is demolished?
– Nostalgia mostly. The building regulations from the 60s cannot be compared with todays. Water pipes are built into joists; it is extremely expensive to change. You need ventilation, lifts, there’s asbestos on the roof, he says.
”We are here to support and inform people that we’re not throwing anyone out on the street”Annette Persson, Göingehem
– But I'm interested in what it will look like. You want to know what they have planned for the future, it's great. But if we are to get a different type of clientele living here, with housing rights, we need a service organisation around, with shops. They expect higher standards.
– It’s a political decision, there is nothing we can do about it, answers Lotta Bengtsdotter from Göingehem AB.
What kind of questions have you been asked today?
– We’re here today because we understand that there is concern, we are here to support and inform people that we’re not throwing anyone out on the street, says Annette Persson.
”They wonder “where the hell are they going to get rid of us. We have not received any information, just what we’ve read in the newspaper"”Ingvar Holm
Ingvar Holm says that many people have called him.
– Many people are worried. They wonder “where the hell are they going to get rid of us. We have not received any information, just what we’ve read in the newspaper". But it’s also difficult when there are plans that have not been finalised, he says.
All affected tenants have received letters with information.
”We can help when the building has been vacated.”Lotta Bengtsdotter, Göingehem
Selena Tolimat's family live in Kviingevägen 27B.
– We already want to move actually, but we’re having a hard time finding anything else. Dad does not have many points. We want something in the municipality, she says and asks Lotta Bengtsdotter for advice.
– Start looking now, she answers.
– Can you not help us?
– We can help when the building has been vacated. We have to take it in stride. This year, there is a building there, she says and points to Åkesvägen where Fridebo is located.
– We don’t really know which building it will be next year. What we do know is that all the buildings will be demolished, they are in such bad condition, in five years they will be gone. In the meantime, politicians will decide what kind of housing there will be here.
