Wihlborgs to develop Helsingborg C
Wihlborgs is now beginning the major transformation of Helsingborg C. A new facade, new entrances, new spaces and an entirely new food destination are just some of the features that will work together to create an attractive environment for travellers and visitors.
A large extension was finished in 2016, with 7,700 m² of new, modern and environmentally certified office space above what was previously known as Knutpunkten. The railway, bus and ferry terminals link together here, in the central heart of the city. Station hosts have also been employed here since 2016 to assist travellers — an initiative from Wihlborgs conducted in collaboration with the Swedish Transport Administration, Skånetrafiken and the city of Helsingborg.
Now it is time for the next stage of the development. The terminal building will receive an entirely new appearance, with a new glass facade facing Kungstorget and a new, clearly defined main entrance. The south entrance will also be rebuilt. On the second storey, a new, modern and attractive food destination with several new restaurants is being created. Additionally, modern office space is being developed.
The station environment will go through a major refurbishment and the 40,000 travellers that pass through Helsingborg C on a daily basis can look forward to an attractive, secure and accessible station environment.
“Since we purchased the property in 2010, we’ve gradually developed it. Now we’re entering another intensive stage that will mean substantial improvements for travellers, visitors and those who live and work in the city. This is the beginning of something new, which is why — after consulting with the city of Helsingborg — we have chosen to give the place a new name: Helsingborg C,” says Ulrika Hallengren, CEO of Wihlborgs Fastigheter.
“This is an investment that will benefit everyone in Helsingborg. As a long-term player, we’re pleased to be part of developing central Helsingborg and creating a transportation hub of the future.”
The investment is estimated at SEK 257 million and encompasses 8,800 m², of which 1,300 m² is new lettable space. The project’s estimated completion date is sometime in late 2020.
