The Senate approved Tuesday (February 26, 2019) a master plan for Hamburg’s 105th district of Oberbillwerder. Around 7,000 apartments and up to 5,000 jobs are to be created on 124 hectares of land from the mid 2020s north of the Allermöhe S-Bahn station. A vibrant urban district is being developed with innovative mobility concepts and modern, energy-autonomous forms of living and working.
Wide range of affordable housing
The master plan foresees a district integrated into its surroundings with vibrant neighbourhoods and a wide range of offers for living, work, education, culture, sports and recreation. “The “Connected City” in Bergedorf is a modern new urban district that meets all the requirements of modern life in a big city – apartments, sustainable energy and water concepts, connections to the rapid transit railway and short distances to leisure and recreation areas,” said Peter Tschentscher, Mayor of Hamburg.
Breaking new ground with Oberbillwerder
Last May, a jury of experts selected a design by the Copenhagen-based ADEPT ApS, the Hilversum-based Karres + Brands and the Stuttgart-based Transsolar as winner of the “The Connected City” project. IBA Hamburg has turned the design into a master plan in consultation with the Department of Urban Development and Housing, the Bergedorf District Authority and experts. Special points of the plan are now being further concretized. Work is due to begin in 2022 and the first houses will be built in the mid 2020s.
