HafenCity/ Hamburg

Over the next 20 years, the 155 hectare HafenCity site will be transformed into an exciting metropolitan area.
The HafenCity precinct will feature a colourful mix of cultural and leisure infrastructure, retail and hospitality outlets, inner-city living quarters, service-sector office space as well as public parks, squares, and waterfront promenades.

Directly adjacent to the historic Speicherstadt warehouse district, the construction of HafenCity is well underway. The first occupants moved into their property in 2004 and Hamburg's new central district is steadily coming to life. At Sandtorkai, planners and architects can watch as their vision for HafenCity becomes reality.

Thank you, Samuel! A very fine thread, well illustrated and put together very nicely.

However, I can't say that I'm blown away by this project. All buildings are of approximately equal height, nothing but flattops with an occasional protrusion of a mechanical shaft, squares & rectangles, boxy and klotzy and boring. Well, at least there's an occasional color accent, and I guess we can look forward to at least one elliptic building. The Cruise Terminal looks like a glorified container.

Well, let's hope the proposed "Hochhäuser an den Elbbrücken" will be approved & actually built!

The Cruise Terminals are just temporary until the surrounding area will be developed.
The "Hochhäuser an den Elbbrücken" will not be built in this way. The goal of related competition (initiated by the senate) was to find visions for the easternmost part of the HafenCity and not detailed building plans. After all, we have to wait a while until the easternmost part will be developed. It is scheduled for the year 2022.
stages of development of the HafenCity.

It appears a new bridge or tunnel is going to be built across the Elbe to connect the BAB7 and the BAB252 , south of the Kohlbrandbruecke in Wilhelmsburg.

Got any info on this project ?

SQUARES, PARKS AND PROMENADES IN THE HEART OF THE CITY

The promenades and squares of HafenCity playfully interact with the most essential of all elements – water

The presence of squares, parks and promenades in cities has long been the sign of a high quality of life, and often forms a cornerstone for urban planners wanting to create a people-friendly environment for living and working. To be successful, a European city for the 21st century needs to give a high priority to its open spaces, with careful planning and attention to quality. HafenCity has taken this approach in the development of its public open spaces, a fact that is strongly reflected in current plans.

In February 2000, the strategic framework for creating a new, open and green city was firmly laid down in the Masterplan for HafenCity. This will be the basis for any future town planning and open space planning considerations.

The Masterplan contains details of the areas given over to open space. There will be plenty of diversity with 35 hectares of parks (Lohsepark, Sandtorpark, Grasbrookpark), more than 10 kilometres of promenades, and squares and water areas at Magdeburgerhafen, Grasbrookhafen and Sandtorhafen harbours. Importance has been attached to careful integration into the surrounding open spaces and the lowlands of the River Elbe and the River Bille. For example, the Elbe riverside walking route will pass through HafenCity, leading along its promenades. It is a declared aim of the plan to integrate HafenCity's green spaces into the existing belt of parks that surround the city centre along the line of the former city fortifications.


Mediterranean concept: Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT convinced the competition judges (© EMBT)

In 2002 the open space concept for the western part of HafenCity was initialy approved, following an international competition. The internationally renowned architects Enrique Miralles Benedetta Tagliabue (EMBT) of Barcelona won the first prize with a light, free and elegant design. The existing harbour basins – originally constructed from a purely functional point of view – are brought to life and put into a human scale. The artistic expressiveness of this open space concept is unrivalled in Europe.

Sophisticated design is one important factor for the square at Sandtorhafen, but the scene will be completed by the people and the backdrop, creating an almost stage-like effect. Construction work will be finished by early summer 2005. Framed by Sandtorkai and Am Kaiserkai and embraced by the surrounding architecture, this first city square – at around 5,000 square metres – will bring water and land together on many levels. Water steps turn the ebb and flood of the tide into an event to be experienced, constantly altering the shape of the space. Ornaments decorate the elegantly designed ground areas and retaining walls depict abstracted fish forms on their surfaces. In the evening, artistic lighting illuminates the scene with steel light spirals playfully scattered around the square.

Restaurants and cafés, festivals, concerts, and other events will bring the entire area surrounding Sandtorhafen harbour to life. At the same time, the square will act as a the gateway to the museum ship harbour. Pontoons that vary in size and shape will provide access to the historic harbour basins allowing them to be viewed from a whole new perspective. Historic ships and cranes representing the maritime heritage of Hamburg will be open to visitors from 2006.

Currently under construction is the DALMANNKAI QUARTER:
The Dalmannkai quarter is a peninsula-like area between the Sandtorhafen harbour to the north and the Grasbrookhafen marina to the south. On completion, the quarter will comprise around 115,000 m2 of gross floor space, providing a sophisticated mix of inner-city residential housing, office space for service-sector companies, hospitality outlets with attractive waterfront seating, and a new concert hall, the Elbe Philharmonic (Elbphilharmonie). Construction start is scheduled for 2005.

Overview
High-quality Rental Apartments
Construction of the first residential building at Dalmannkai started in January 2005. The Hamburg building cooperative “Bergedorf-Bille” constructs 42 high-quality rental apartments on the south side of Dalmannkai, directly at the waterfront of Grasbrookhafen harbour. The design of the two discrete structures was created by the architectural office of Prof. Jörg Friedrich. The buildings feature transparent and elegant façades, and sliding wooden shutters protect them from the sun and the wind. The apartments are flooded with light and some have a gallery-type layout extending on two levels. The staircases are of the straight-through type and receive natural light; they provide spectacular views of the Marco Polo Terraces and the Marina.

New Renderings for the Überseequartier (Rem Koolhaas projcet)

The Überseequartier is the centrepiece of Hamburg’s HafenCity urban development zone. The quarter will complement Hamburg’s current inner-city precinct, featuring a vibrant mix of cultural, leisure and entertainment facilities, a cruise ship terminal, shops, restaurants, hotels, service-sector outlets and residential housing. The main attraction will be the Maritime Erlebniswelt, a large complex that will house a giant aquarium and Science Center.














BB + GG arquitectes from Barcelona won the International open space planning competition for the Magdeburger Hafen harbour and Überseequartier.

Great project !!

I love it . D-tiger: at the official website of this project are also some download brochures and maps. One of the maps is called "Flächenstand nov. 06 " with all the ongoing projects on an aerial view.There you can see that the design of the cruise center /hotel has been changed.
I looks like a butterfly from the air.The Abendblatt newspaper reported its a design from Massimiliano Fuskas , its the winnerdesign but he was asked to optimalize it within dec.06.

It is nice with harbour development, so it is good for Hamburg, but it is strange that they don't build some skyscrapers there when the city is so large. Even in my small city of Malmö we built our Turning Torso in the new harbour area. A landmark is needed!

The Hafencity area (at least the western part of it) is very close to the city centre. You won't find any skyscrapers there. The Elbphilharmonie (which is now officially under construction since monday) will be the tallest building in this area with 110m and it is actually marketed as the new landmark for Hamburg (they are constantly making comparisons with the Sydney Opera). Actually I don't think that skysrapers are needed here to create a dense urban environment.
One has to accept that in Hamburg there won't be any skyscrapers (>150m) in or next to the city centre in the near future, because it is an unwritten rule in the city government that the main church towers (all between 120 and 150m high) should dominate the city centre's skyline. In other parts of the city skyscrapers are more likely (east end of the Hafencity, Channel Harburg...)
