Hyllie:

Hyllie and its planned new districit Hyllievång, to Öresundsbron in southwest Malmö, has a lot of large projects under construction. In Hyllie, Malmö Arena is just completed next to the once so lonely Hyllie Vattentorn from 1973. The area was just a field as late a s in the 1990s, but now there is a new city tunnel station, Scandinavia's largest shopping mall with about 220 stores, the brand new Emporia, and the highrise complex Point Hyllie is under construction in the area (18 to 27 floors), plus several new residential buildings are planned. Also 2 highrise hotels, Chinatown, wide avenues, rocks, a botanical garden and a theme park are being planned in the area.

The banderole in the front is an ad for the Point Hyllie highrise and its proximity to all the world's airports, because the trains just take a few minutes to Copenhagen's
airport from the nearby citytunnel station.
Some of Hyllie's landmarks can be seen in the background: Emporia, Malmö Arena, Point Hyllie phase 1, Hyllie vattentorn and a large parking garage.

Malmö Arena and Hyllie Vattentorn.

Hyllie Vattentorn, the 62m high water tower from 1973 used to have a coffee shop and an observation deck above the four pillars, but it was closed.

Hyllie Vattentorn has been renovated.

 



Many people think it looks like an UFO, especially at nights when it is shining with a cool strong blue light. Sadly, as you can see, the structure needs a renovation.
This is close to the site were the very tall skyscrapers Scandinavian Tower and Malmö Tower were supposed to be built, but was cancelled.

Malmö Arena, is the huge new arena for events like hockey, other sports and concerts. It was completed in 2009 (but the picture is from 2010). It can take 12-14 000
visitors and is located just next to the water tower.

Hyllie Vattentorn was completely alone in the field in the beginning of the 2000s.

Hyllie station with the artwork “Minuten” above. It is named Minuten because it takes a minute for the light effect to rotate around the circular roof.

The entrance to the new Hyllie Citytunnel station, called "Minuten"because there is a lot that rotates the structure in just a minute. It is the last stop before Denmark. After
Hyllie, the train passes above Öresund at the bridge and then reaches the station underneath Copenhagen Airport. This photo is from 2014.

Malmömässan was built in 2012 to replace the old exhibition center in Västra Hamnen. In my opinion a pretty dull design...

Emporia

Emporia is currently (2012) Scandinavia's largest shopping mall. It is situated opposite Malmö Arena in Hyllie the southwest outskirts of Malmö. It has about 220 stores, including two large supermarkets, restaurants and some international store brands. The architecture, designed by Gert Wingårdh's famous studio, is spectacular with unusual colours and shapes; yellow, blue and red The building has totally six floors, of which three floors of stores. The basement floor is located at a hill, so it has an own entrance ot the parking lot. The Emporia shopping center was inaugurated autumn 2012. You can find 3 atriums with waterfall, trees and glass.

And there is a roof garden on top of the building, where you can watch views over Malmö, Öresundsbron and Denmark! Website: http://www.emporia.se

The main exterior of Emporia towards Hyllie Boulevard and Hyllie Torg (square) is consisting of amber coloured glass in an almost organic shape. It resembles architecture that more likely could be found in Dubai then Malmö. The mall occupies 93 000 m².
