Hamburg to build apartments in working area of the port

Hamburg to build apartments in working area of the port

The prevailing wisdom today is that housing and port operations don’t mix, so Hamburg is certainly bucking the trend. The "work and living" project is designed to build 3,000 family-size apartments and create 16,000 new jobs within the next 20 years. The living areas will be environment-friendly and on a "human scale," with associated cultural and recreational assets and a new U-Bahn station.


The new “Grasbrook" suburb would comprise three areas: the Moldauhafen and the Freihafenelbquartier will be mixed use working and living; and the Hafentorquartier will be used for emissions-free port operations. This will include research and development activities and areas for start-ups and innovations.


Plans to restructure the site have long been considered. The Ministry for Economic Affairs, Transport and Innovation and local business organisations including the Port Association signed a Letter of Intent on August 1st 2017. This covered the future use of the area and the development of the former Überseezentrum (distribution shed) and adjacent sites.


Hamburg’s senator for economic affairs Michael Westhagemann confirmed that port companies will be able to remain in the area. At the O’swaldkai the lease agreement with Unikai (HHLA) will be extended and the EDEKA supermarket chain will also receive a long term lease contract.
