History of Arlöv
Until late 19th century, Arlöv consisted of only a few farms. From 1869, with the founding of the sugar factory, Arlöv developed bit by bit to today's industrial city.
At the beginning of the 20th century developed there were a lots of buildings with patterned brickwork. Unfortunately, only a few of these houses are left today. Due to the large number of immigrants, the city began to built high-rise developments already in the 1950s. The construction continued in the 1960s and 70s and the mall was built in 1971.
