Project completion

The Lindholmshamnen project is scheduled for completion. There will be around 700 homes as well as restaurants, a preschool and several playgrounds.

650 dwellings completed

The restaurant on the deck is done, as well as the remaining streets. At Riksbyggen it’s moving in time in the newly developed, cooperative tenancy association – in a special way of living and a way to get young adults into the housing market. The third and final piece of art is installed in the area and along the avenue Lindholmsallén construction work of a new tram rail begins.

A complete new part of the city is on the horizon

Now the deck is done and the restaurant and office building start to form. The streets throughout the area are almost done.

80 percent moved in

In the beginning of the year the new, permanent park Science Play will be done. During the spring the construction of the deck starts where the citizens of Gothenburg will be able to dip their toes in the river eventually. Riksbyggen starts their construction development and moving in is in full motion in HSB’s quarters, in other words four out of five blocks and about 450 dwellings are moved into in Lindholmshamnen. Regnbågsparken relocate from Lindholmen and the area’s other permanent park, Maskinparken, begins developing. Two out of three art pieces are installed between the buildings.

New possibilities on the water

A water property in the inner section of Lindholmshamnen gets new owners, who’re planning for a new restaurant and office on the location. A new bigger wooden deck is built on the property, a place where the people of Gothenburg can be close to the water - for real. During the fall moving in to Peab’s dwellings will kick off, and new spots within the restaurant business announce that they will be opening their doors to the people of Lindholmenshamnen shortly.

Restaurants open

The development of HSB's quarters speeds up. Lindholmshamnen’s first businesses open and now you can enjoy sourdough pizza as well as Italian coffee. After the summer the opening ceremony of the temporary park Regnbågsparken takes place.

Occupancy begins

The first people start to move in. After an anticipated preschool opens in Lindholmshamnen and attracts young talents to Lindholmen. New streets start to form and the area is adapted to be protected in the future from the high water levels.

A place for art

A youth council gets involved and gives input regarding the art design of the streets of Lindholmen.

The development of the blocks in Lindholmshamnen kicks off

Peab’s blocks which are closest to the water and Skanska’s quarters, which amongst other things will get a preschool, are the first ones to get started.

Detailed development plans for Lindholmshamnen gain legal approval

It’s concluded what will be built in Lindhomshamnen and what it should look like. The land is divided between the different developers.

Development plans adopted

Detailed development plans for Lindholmshamnen are adopted. The neighbourhood will become a city district with sustainability and a living, human city as its focus. A vibrant hub in a city environment characterised by innovation, quality and beautiful architecture.

A shared vision for Lindholmshamnen

A consortium consisting of Peab, Skanska, HSB, Riksbyggen and Älvstranden Utveckling is formed and the parties begin working on their shared vision. Together with Vision Älvstaden, it forms the basis for Lindholmshamnen, as adopted by the municipal assembly in 2012.

Burgeoning growth continues

Lindholmen continues to grow and develop with improved infrastructure, more companies and new buildings, including landmarks such as Kuggen, Navet and Radisson Blu Riverside hotel.

Lindholmen Science Park established

Swedish global companies, the city and the academy decide to invest in Lindholmen. An international business park emerges as a centre for knowledge and innovation in transport, mobile internet, modern media and design. Students and companies meet here and form part of a venue for collaboration across geographical borders. At the same time, the area’s physical development picks up speed, including the construction of Lindholmsallén, the principal thoroughfare through the area.

Trade and industry on the horizon

The City of Gothenburg pursues an extensive transformation programme together with Gothenburg’s businesses with the aim of attracting research, education, trade and industry to Lindholmen. The area is revitalised.

The winds of change

A retraining programme is begun for shipyard workers and a number of vocational training schools are set up in the area. As there were already educational facilities on Lindholmen, it was natural to locate both the retraining operation and the vocational training schools in the area. At the same time, one of the old shipbuilding yards was converted into a repair yard.

End of an era

A research centre with educational facilities is established on Lindholmen in collaboration with Chalmers University of Technology and the Sahlgrenska Academy. The aim is to reduce occupational injuries to hearing, eyesight and the back. The last ship is built at the Lindholm shipyard.

Shipbuilding flourishes

Lindholmen is home to some of the world’s leading shipyards with a total of almost 8000 employees.

The shipbuilding industry emerges

The shipyard grows rapidly around the turn-of-the-century and Sweden’s first dry dock is built – a nascent Lindholm shipyard.

Lindholmen is industrialised

Lindholmen was the first part of Hisingen to be industrialised. It was here the first shipyard for ironclads were supplemented with an engineering workshop for steamships.
