In the magazine café: Nyhamnen – transformation to a new urban district

Nyhamnen (the New Port) is located on the shore of Öresund directly adjacent to central Malmö and the Central Station. The area offers fantastic possibilities of expanding the city centre towards the water and of making Nyhamnen part of central Malmö.

The site offers great potential to create an attractive urban district with an exciting mix of old port and industrial settings and new construction. Fully built, the site can hold about 9,000 homes in what will be largely an urban inner-city environment with high density in the areas closest to public transport. The district will also offer space for a variety of business uses with about 12,000 to 16,000 new workplaces.

The comprehensive plan looks far into the future
According to the Swedish Planning and Building Act, every municipality must have an up-to-date comprehensive plan. The comprehensive plan shall guide decisions about the use of land and water areas and the future development of the existing urban environment. The comprehensive plan for Nyhamnen is a more detailed version of the municipality-wide comprehensive plan and builds on its priorities, strategies and planning guidelines. The comprehensive plan for Nyhamnen describes the goals for developing the district and establishes the overall structures.
