BOOMING MALMÖ 2013 - new highrises, malls and the historic center

It was some time ago I took pictures from my own city, Malmö. The city is booming, a lot of new buildings have been popping up and new highrises and shopping malls are under construction all over the city. And there is a nice historic city center. So the day before christmas day I went out on a photo tour, the weather was very mild, 7 degrees C, no snow and blue skies, not what you would except from Sweden in December!

HJÄLMAREKAJEN:


Malmö Live, the newest skyscraper of Hjälmarekajen, Malmö, (here under construction the day before christmas day 2013) will be 85m tall and have 25 floors when completed in 2015.
It will be the tallest building in the city center and will feature the new congress center and a tall Clarion Hotel. It is situated at Hjälmarekajen, a harbour area close to the central station and the Old Town.

Kvarter Niagara. This futuristic highrise complex will be part of Malmö Högskola university, and will feature a light atrium.

TRIANGELN:
A new 18-storey highrise is under construction in Kv Kaninen next to Scandic Hotel Triangeln (formerly Hilton) from 1989. The Triangeln shopping mall has also been enlarged and refurbished. There are also two futuristic station buildings above the entrances to the Citytunneln train tunnel!

Two residential highrises are also under construction just next to Dalaplan, a formerly lowrise are in south central Malmö. This is where I live! One of them is built right above the Mobilia shopping mall, that has been extended and refurbished recently! The other one is called Bohus.

OLD CITY CENTER:

This is where you find the most importants squares, a long pedestrian street and historic buildings. Some modern buildings have been built even in this area.

GUSTAV ADOLFS TORG:

STORTORGET:
This is the historical square where you can find a king statue, the Town Hall and some of the most imporing buildings of Malmö, many of them banks and hotels.


























All the photos above are from Stortorget.
