Lindholmen forms part of Vision Älvstaden. Together with the City of Gothenburg administration, trade and industry, we’re creating an inclusive, green and dynamic inner city centred on the river.

The rapidly growing number of people living, working, studying and conducting research on Lindholmen results in a lot of building where everything is characterised by climate-aware solutions. The consortium works jointly to achieve social, ecological and economic sustainability. Around 700 homes will be built in Lindholmshamnen along with a preschool, a number of commercial premises and new parks. This is, in other words, a big project. Which is why a number of property developers are planning and creating the new Lindholmshamnen together.


The Blanka housing cooperative consists of 122 tenant-owned homes from studio flats to four-bedroom properties. Innovative architecture in the four buildings that constitute Blanka go hand-in-hand with the neighbourhood’s cosmopolitan atmosphere. The project is the work of Wingårdhs Arkitekter. Blanka is built according to Nordic Swan guidelines. Occupancy is scheduled for 2021. Learn more


The Lindholmsvarvet housing cooperative is a leading-edge project in terms of the environment and its choice of materials, and whose architecture blends in with the neighbourhood’s waterfront character. Solar cells, flexible waste sorting and sedum roofs that clean and slow rainwater run-off are a few examples. All 129 apartments will be built according to Nordic Swan guidelines. Occupancy will begin during the autumn, 2020.
