 Solna is proposing a series of developments on the north of Råstasjön, a small lake surround by nature and houses. Enveloped by the railroad landscape on two sides. Suburban modernistic housing on one side.  Recently a large arena was built and the surrounding complex with housing, offices a gigantic shopping mall is under construction to the east of the lake. To the north (up in the above photo) and housing are is proposed between the small forest north of the lake and the railroad yard to the north.
The are around the lake is a popular recreational area for the inhabitants of Solna and neighboring Sundbyberg. (I  run around the lake regularly.)
