Brochures and working papers on HafenCity at a glance
HafenCity Hamburg GmbH received what is probably one of the world’s most important urban development and real estate Awards, the “ULI Global Award for Excellence”, at the 2013 Fall Meeting of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) in Chicago.
From September, 16 through December, 6 HafenCity and IBA Hamburg, the two major symbols of Hamburg’s ambitious urban design and re-development will present their traveling exhibition, “Building the City Anew”, in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
more than 2,500 apartments planned or under construction
HafenCity Hamburg GmbH is present once again this year at Expo Real in Munich and will not only be presenting the next important development steps in central and eastern HafenCity but also spotlighting the many high-quality residential building projects. A total 2,500 apartments are currently planned, under construction or being put out to tender in HafenCity. At the same time, the diversity of HafenCity is increasing.
Practice at any time of day or night in your own four walls – and no one is disturbed because the walls in the new HafenCity “musicians’ house” are soundproof. Noise cannot leak into your own or a neighbour’s home. A musician’s dream. The foundation stone for the group building project has been laid.
Sustainable development in the city of the 21st century
This year HafenCity Hamburg GmbH is present at MIPIM in Cannes once again – one of the world’s most important market places for the real estate industry. From 12 to 15 March 2013 it is the principal representative of the City of Hamburg on the joint stand for the Hamburg Metropolitan Region.
HafenCity Hamburg will make its next major and farsighted strides in 2013. Large green spaces are taking shape, the development of sophisticated residential plans begins, and other substantial projects in the centre, such as the Elbarkaden and HafenCity University, will reach completion during the year, said Jürgen Bruns-Berentelg, chief executive of HafenCity Hamburg GmbH at the annual press conference on January 29, 2013.
The new subway line for Hamburg and HafenCity starts operating. On 28 November around 200 guests from politics, business and public life celebrated the opening of the U4. From 29 November, free rides will be available for everyone on trial runs between Jungfernstieg and HafenCity – and transport to HafenCity on 1 December to an exciting day of concerts, DJs, cultural and kid’s acts, as well as late night shopping. When the timetable changes on 9 December 2012, regular U4 services will cover the route from Billstedt to Überseequartier.
