NCC and the shopping mall company Citycon have formed a joint venture for the development, leasing and construction of Mölndal Galleria.

“Last autumn, we started construction of the office building for SCA and our particular strength is developing attractive urban environments in the form of workplaces, housing, retail facilities and service amenities, which combined will result in a city center for Mölndal that is both sustainable and attractive. We’re now looking forward to getting construction of the next stage under way”
The project company will be owned equally by the two partners. Citycon will acquire NCC’s share when the mall has been completed and the agreed conditions have been fulfilled.
