Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
The City of Reykjavik's main objective in housing is the creation of a diversified and flexible housing market that guarantees an affordable roof for all, regardless of whether people need support with their housing or not.
Reykjavík is growing faster than ever when looking at the number of new apartments—and during this growth phase Reykjavik is growing inward. The densification achieves the City's environmental targets climate goals. Our focus is on quality districts and social mixing across the City so we may have a stronger community for the future. These objectives are part of the Green Plan.
The development of housing is in the interest of all groups of society, for the general market, affordable housing for young adults and first buyers, building cooperatives, students, the labor unions, and senior citizens. Particular emphasis is placed on ensuring a safe roof overhead for people with lower incomes at an affordable price.
