Plans to develop the southern outskirts of Malmö had been around since the 1960s, but not until the decision was taken to build the City Tunnel did construction begin in earnest. The new railway station at Hyllie has provided a focal point for an entire district – and a new hub for the Öresund region.
Malmö’s southern entry point
Once complete, Hyllie will have about 10,000 homes and an equivalent number of workspaces. The unique location, combined with modern architecture, parks and nearby countryside, will create an attractive environment for local people, businesses and visitors. Rich agricultural land, excellent public transport links and regional integration are the hallmarks of Malmö’s southern entry point.
Driving growth with multiple players
Hyllie will be not only a diverse and lively place but also the most climate-smart neighbourhood in the Öresund region. Its homes, workplaces, hotels, shops and amenities will enjoy an exceptional location at the foot of the Öresund Bridge. The City of Malmö has entered partnerships with around 30 businesses and other stakeholders to drive the area’s expansion.
From Hyllie Station Square, there is quick access to the railway platforms. On the western side of the square is Point Hyllie, where five buildings are being constructed on a phased basis. Nearby are Malmö Arena, the MalmöMässan exhibition hall, the Emporia shopping mall, hotel accommodation, offices, the Hyllie Vattenpark aquatic park and the Kretseum discovery centre. To the north of the area is Hylliebadet, a newly built swimming pool set in parkland. Some 2,500 homes will be built here by 2017, along with amenities including preschools and elementary schools.
