Norra Djurgårdsstaden Stockholm Royal Seaport in English is a large area of central Stockholm, undergoing brownfield redevelopment. The area consists of former industries. 10,000 dwellings and 30,000 workplaces will be developed in the area up to 2025. The project is part of the Clinton Climate Initiative; the area is located in the borough of Östermalm. Norra Djurgårdsstaden is a part of Royal Djurgården. Since the 1880s this area was developed into one of Stockholm's largest industrial areas together with its harbour; the direct access to the Baltic Sea was one of the reasons to in 1884 build Värtahamnen. To a beginning, this harbour was used to transporting coal, used as fuel to the local gasworks. During the start of the 21st century, it was decided for this area to be modernised and the previous industries to be demolished; the name "Stockholm Royal Seaport" came about during the recent constructions since 2010.

Djurgården or, more Kungliga Djurgården is an island in central Stockholm, Sweden. Djurgården is home to historical buildings and monuments, galleries, the amusement park Gröna Lund, the open-air museum Skansen, the small residential area Djurgårdsstaden, yacht harbours, extensive stretches of forest and meadows, it is one of the Stockholmers' favorite recreation areas and tourist destinations alike, attracting over 10 million visitors per year, of which some 5 million come to visit the museums and amusement park. The island belongs to the National City park founded in 1995. Since the 15th century the Swedish monarch has owned or held the right of disposition of Royal Djurgården. Today, this right is exercised by the Royal Djurgården Administration, a part of the Royal Court of Sweden. A larger area of the city, separated from Djurgården proper by Djurgårdsbrunnsviken is Norra Djurgården, including Gärdet. Djurgården was until the 16th century known as Valmundsö and this name is still preserved in locations such as Waldemarsudde.
Though several proposals to explain this name have been put forward, no authoritative explanation is accepted. While the name of King Valdemar was associated with the old name during the 17th century, the separate elements of the original variations of the name might be interpreted as etymologically related to either Walm-und-ö - if walm is linked to the Anglo-Saxon words wielm, this would mean the original name should be interpreted as "The island outside of which the waves grow large" - or Wal-mund-ö - which could be interpreted as walder and mun, i.e. "the grounds next to the mouth of Lake Mälaren". The present name, Djurgården, stems from the game park of King John III, which he declared the intention to realize in February 1579 to keep deer and elk. In the 17th century a baiting arena was built at the location. In 1667, a few cottages intended for "paralysed and crippled seafarers" were built forming what was to become Djurgårdsstaden; the Swedish Navy moved to Karlskrona during the 1680s however, the neighbourhood was instead populated by a diverse crowd.
Plans to demolish the "insignificant shacks" in front of the World Fair in 1897, for a planned expansion of the naval shipyard in 1918, never were accomplished and the area is today protected as a historical monument. During the late 18th century, Djurgården transformed into more of a popular recreational area than a Royal game park. King Charles XIV John's creation of the Rosendal Palace in the 1820s marked the beginning of Djurgården's development as a stately residential area, paired with the creation of several entertainment establishments in the late 19th century, including Gröna Lund 1883, Skansen 1891. At a café just south of Skansen, in block Alberget, sports club Djurgårdens IF was founded on 12 March 1891; the western waterfront of the island was a small scale shipyard during the late 17th and early 18th centuries, after which the Navy erected some 30 sheds for the winter quarters of galleys in the area. The operations expanded during the 1870s. Plans to relocate the shipyard in the beginning of the 20th century were interrupted by World War II, which meant the activities grew instead, culminating in 1945 when 1,280 people were employed.
In 1969, the Navy moved to Muskö, in the early 1970s the area was transformed into the recreation area it is today. Many structures on the western part of Djurgården date back to the Stockholm World's Fair of 1897, including Djurgårdsbron, the main bridge to the island. One of the most prominent buildings of the exposition, a 16,820 m² exposition hall in wood, design by the architect Ferdinand Boberg and featuring a 100 metres tall cupola and 4 minarets, was demolished after the exposition however, together with many other pavilions built in non-permanent materials. In what is today the southern part of the amusement park Gröna Lund and east of it, a private shipyard was developed from 1735 by the merchant Efraim Lothsack, who had several new residential buildings built; the activities grew during the 19th century under the managership of John Burgman and Adolf Fredholm, of which the former had the church, Djurgårdskyrkan, the school, Djurgårdsskolan, built. The shipyard was sold to the city in 1863 and moved to Södra Hammarbyhamnen in 1979.
Another shipyard for pinnaces, built in the strait between Djurgården and Beckholmen in 1868, is still in operation. The southern portion of the area hosted the Stockholm International Exhibition. Besides the list below, a big portion of Djurgården consists of green areas offering footpaths and water front promenades among present or historical upper class residences and old institutional buildings, many of which are regarded as historical monuments of national interest. ABBA: The Museum Aquaria Water Museum - A small museum displaying a salmon ladder, an artificial rainforest and Nordic environments. Beckholmen - historical maritime environment including several dry docks and historical buildings.
