Bagarmossen is a district within Skarpnäck borough of Stockholm, Sweden.[3] Bagarmossen has 10,951 inhabitants as of December 31, 2009.[2][4]

Geography and transportation[edit]

Bagarmossen is located southeast of central Stockholm, neighbouring the Skarpnäcks gård district to the south and west, Kärrtorp to the northwest, and the nature reserve Nackareservatet in Nacka Municipality to the east.

Bagarmossen is served by the Bagarmossen metro station, which is located along the green line 17.[5] When the station opened in 1958, it was a surface station and the terminus of line 17. When line 17 was extended to Skarpnäck in 1994, this included a new underground station in Bagarmossen, replacing the old surfaced one.[5] Bagarmossen is also the terminus of the 161 bus line to Midsommarkransen.[6]

Architecture[edit]

Bagarmossen was built mostly during the 1950s, and remains a relatively well-preserved '50s suburb. The apartment buildings along Byälvsvägen were built in the early 1970s as a part of the million programme.[7] New apartment buildings were constructed near the metro station in the early 1990s, and in recent years, Bagarmossen has seen several new developments, mostly in the northwest.

When the area was first built in the 1950s, it received some international recognition because of the consistent separation of pedestrian and road traffic - leading to plenty of walking paths. The houses were also built to fit with the natural conditions. The courtyards constructed along with the houses in the 1950s are well-designed with pines, spruce trees and lawns.

Bagarmossen has 10,951 inhabitants as of December 31, 2009.[2][4] People with a foreign background (in this case, born outside Sweden, or with both parents born outside Sweden) constituted for 33.3% of the population.[2] The same figure for Skarpnäck borough was 26.6%,[8] and 28.7% for Stockholm as a whole.[9]

The unemployment rate in Bagarmossen was 4.9% as of October 31, 2009.[2] In comparison, the unemployment rate of the Skarpnäck borough was 3.8%,[8] and 3.6% of Stockholm as a whole.[9] The average income per person in Bagarmossen was 222,200 Swedish kronor in 2008, this was lower than the average income of the Skarpnäck borough, 250,200 Swedish kronor, as well as the Stockholm average of 294,500 Swedish kronor.[8][9]
