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
