The Mayor of Hamburg unveils plans for a new district in Hafen City

 Port city interface 

“Grasbrook” will provide homes for 6,000 residents and create over 16,000 jobs. Located in the port activity zone, the new district has been intentionally designed as a mixed-use zone, with housing, schools, offices and retail spaces. The 46 hectare site will be split into three sectors. One of them, the Hafentorquartier, will act as a transition zone for the port activities present and will accommodate research and development activities and start-ups. The new housing will be required to meet the environmental standards already applied in the East zone of HafenCity, such as the use of solar energy and e-mobility solutions. Attractive green and public spaces will also be created along the waterfront.
