Field S5 represents a crucial piece in what will eventually form the compact urban core of Jessheim. The location and size of the area provide an opportunity to introduce qualities, architecture, and amenities that the city currently lacks. A conscious and ambitious plan for the development of the field can elevate and complement Jessheim in a way that gives the place a new significance – not only for its residents but also as a destination for newcomers and visitors. Many may discover that Jessheim, with its proximity to the city of Lillestrøm, Gardermoen, as well as numerous attractive recreational offerings and sights in the surrounding area, serves as an ideal starting point for excursions.

An initiative that caters to all these target groups can have a self-reinforcing effect and become a catalyst for further city development. Jessheim has the potential to become a fantastic destination and meeting place for experiences, urban life, food, drinks, culture, and recreation. With just an hour’s drive from Oslo and much less from Lillestrøm and Gardermoen, thousands of potential visitors could stop by for a day or a long weekend. But for that to happen, the place must invite people to stay.
