The site is Kvarnbacken, near Jakobsberg Station in a suburb of Stockholm.
Up until about 50 years ago it was agricultural land throughout the area. The land began to be developed from the mid 1950´s. In 1966 HSB, a cooperative housing association, bought the land from several landowners to build apartment blocks. Vibblaäng housing area was finished in 1966, around the time that the mill was still there. Then, there really was no center in Jakobsberg, just a few small shops and the railroad crossing.
