Ideas to expand southern Malmö have been entertained since the 1960s. Yet it was only in connection with the decision about the City Tunnel, and thus a new train station in Hyllie, that expansion plans began in earnest. The ambition of Malmö's new 'central' area is to create a mixed city that is full of life.
Ease of commuting and communications associated with urban development, green surroundings and a southern Swedish landscape make Hyllie an attractive center for residents, visitors and businesses.
During a visit we will show the expansion of Hyllie, a future-oriented part of town with the potential to promote growth in both Malmö and the Öresund region. Next to Hyllie Station Square - where Point Hyllie is being built and where the entrance down to the station lies - are Malmö Arena and a number of exciting construction projects with regional functions.
Here there is a shopping center, hotel, exhibition center and office buildings with a great view that are all to be completed in 2012. Furthermore, there are approx. 2,500 new homes in the area that are expected to be finished by 2015.
