Elinegårds Mobilitetshuset

At the edge of Limhamn's Kalkbrott area in Malmö, the new district Elinegård is beginning to take shape. Approximately 1,000 homes, the new Elinelund school and a preschool are already in place. By the fall of 2021, construction will start on 800 homes spread over ten blocks. When everything is ready, Elinegård will be a green area with a strong focus on the environment and climate, good opportunities for community and meetings in everyday life and where it will be easy to opt out of the car.

In the middle of the area, a mobility building will be built which will be a gathering point for the entire district. The ground floor will consist of a transparent block with high ceilings and a lot of vegetation. Here, the majority of the area's parking spaces will be located, as well as a car and bicycle pool that will be accessible to everyone. In addition, there will be common areas for, for example, co-working, homework, carpentry and painting workshop, party room and recycling room. The construction of the mobility building is planned for 2022 and the occupancy is estimated for 2023.
