HafenCity, Hamburg

Großer Grasbrook 10, 20457 Hamburg, Germany

HafenCity - is the youngest district of Hamburg, who grew up on the site of the old port. Removed from Town Hall Square just eight meters, he is completely surrounded by the river and canals. HafenCity - an architectural design for the future, with houses overhanging the water and with the interconnecting bridges. Currently it is one of the largest urban development projects in Europe, where on-site warehouses and port facilities are built ultra-modern futuristic buildings of glass and concrete - houses, offices, shops, restaurants, museums and cultural centers. The only thing that has not changed in this area - this is the famous nineteenth-century industrial complex Speicherstadt in grand warehouses which today are museums and galleries of contemporary art. New neighborhood today is positioned as the quarter of the rich. By 2020 HafenCity must earn as a full district of Hamburg.
