A small hill in Grimstaskogen which is nearby and bears the name Oljeberget, also of biblical origin, also the biblical name Kanaan which first appeared in the 1730s and comes from an old croft that existed on the site.
Vällingby center was inaugurated on 14 November 1954, decayed during the 1980s and 1990s took its toll on the center buildings, in the early 2000s the city decided to renovate and modernize Vällingby Centrum, which was implemented during the years 2004-2008. One of the new buildings, K-fem designed by Gert Wingårdh (known to House of Sweden at 2900 K Street NW in Washington DC, USA, which is the Swedish embassy and representatives of Swedish companies. From October 2009 also the Icelandic embassy), was named the world's best building for shopping at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona in 2008, received the Swedish Light Prize 2008 and the Nordic Light Prize 2010. After the renovation in 2008, Vällingby Centrum changed its name to Vällingby City. However, the name City was never approved by the municipality's name preparation, so the official name was still Vällingby Centrum, in 2017 they returned to the original name Vällingby Centrum, while the center got a new graphic identity that would "strengthen the modern 50's feeling".
The planning and architecture of Vällingby was influenced by ideas from North America-notably Clarence Stein's 'Radion Idea'-and the New Towns in the United Kingdom. In turn, Vällingby become a much discussed and influential model of suburban development in different parts of the world.
