The gateway to Gothendurg City
In the spring of 1999 Partille Municipality and Steen & Strøm initiated their partnership to build a new shopping center for the region. A shared goal was to unite the municipality that was divided by the motorway. It was therefore decided to build Allum shopping center as a bridge over the E20 motorway, a landmark you cannot miss and a signpost for Partille.
All in all, Allum has about 100 shops and a dozen different restaurants and cafés. Today, the eye-catching bridge has about 20 shops and a café. Allum is an alternative to Gothenburg city center and other centers in the vicinity, and has also become a hub for the Partille public transport network. Having one of the best business sites in Sweden, and with more than 500 000 people with a twenty-minute driving radius, this newly built project, which was completed in 2006, was seen as a long-awaited facility. Success follow swiftly.
Allum’s commercial success is paving the way for expansion, and plans are now in full swing to extend Allum by around 15 400 sq. m. The aim is for a newly extended Allum with more than 130 shops to open for business in 2019.
