Södercity is a gritty south part of central Helsingborg, a multi cultural neighbourhood with mostly modern buildings. Many Asian, Middle East and Polish stores and restaurants can be found there.

Skanska is constructing a mixed use highrise on top of this shopping galleria/movie palace "Söder", that originally was a 60s Domus department store.
