North river bank – From dockland to sustainable urban area

Visit a showcase of innovative urban development.

Until the 1960s, Gothenburg was the centre of manufacturing and development in one of the world’s leading shipyard industries. As the industry was dismantled, starting in the mid-1970s, vast dockland areas and industrial premises were abandoned and became available for new possibilities.

The municipal company Älvstranden Utveckling AB revitalises and drives development in the areas around the Göta Älv river. This visit presents the unique method for developing the North River Bank in collaboration between private and public sectors.
