Skanska has been commissioned to construct Entré Malmö, the city's new central shopping and experience center. The contract amounts to approximately €80 million (approx. SEK 800 million), which will be included in order bookings for the third quarter. The customer is the Danish listed company TK Development.
Entré Malmö will comprise three interconnected buildings with total floor space of 82,000 m², of which new construction will account for approximately 76,000 m². The existing Värnhemshuset building, with retail chain Hemköp as the tenant, will undergo extensive renovation.
In addition to restaurants, movie theaters and a fitness facility, the new experience center will accommodate retail stores on two levels. A two-story car park with 930 parking spaces will be built underground.
The various sections of the center will be joined by a glassed-in pedestrian bridge. A large illuminated glass façade with special illumination effects will be the Center's "display window" to the northern entrance to the city.
Preparatory work has commenced and Entré Malmö is scheduled for completion in autumn 2008.
