Arrow East Amager | Construction and Development

This thread will try to cover what's ongoing at the east side of Amager. The potentiel is great here, and many sites and plans are developing these years.
With the Kastrup Airport, metro and the Øresundsbron nearby, this location is the real Ørestad, and is much a suburb for Malmö as for Copenhagen.
The 2 largest ongoing projects are the ones below, and many others will follow in the nearest future, and change the main road Amager Strandvej with the characteristic suburban toach to Amager Avenue.

SCANPORT & THE BLUE PLANET
Scanport
Skanska developing the area between Kastrup Airport and the marina in Kastrup. With just 1 km from the airport and Øresundsbron, the location can't be better in terms of logistic.
The projects name is Scanport, and is 100 % business properties, and will when finished include 100,000 m2. The site has been excavated, but the only building so far completed, is
Nordhuset: 2 storeys, 5300 m2
It's home for the japanese medi Astellas Pharma 65 employees.

The Blue Planet
Next to Scanport, Danmarks Akvarium constructing their new aquarium, that will be finished in spring 2013.
The developing will in total reach 11,000 m2, and on the outside approx. 2000 m2 in the first stage.
Later on an expansion can be a reality.
Design by 3xN.

Den Blå Planet

Right now, I envy you guys sooooo much...
Just about the moment when I think Kobenhavn can't get any better then, let's say Orestad district, I see another project that is even more awesome.. I wonder what's next.

I'm wondering if this thread should simply be named East Amager or Amager Strand - complementing Ørestad to the west - and include the development along Amager Strandvej etc. One of the things I like the most about these projects is that they will ultimately redevelop the entire coastline between the airport into one big recreational cluster.

As for the architecture, I am a bit worried about the aquarium. Will it only look good from the air during take-offs and landings? I am a bit tired of 3XM's white stuff and after Bella Sky I can't help wondering if this will just be another disappointment...

I agree with your concerns about the aquriaum. I have a feeling, that it will look excellent from the sky, but boring from the ground. And the latter is what matters in my book.

As for Scanport it looks nice, but it worries me that it is 100% business in stead of mixed function buildings.

Scanport does look nice, a little mini version of Oslo's barcode.

But at least it looks great from the air.

Just if case you guys didn't notice, I have resigned as Mod so I can't change threads titles anymore. Þróndeimr is probably the one to ask if you want things done.

Next to The Blue Planet Nordhuset and Bryggergården newly renovated.





Kystens Perle, guess they will take advantage when the aquarium open. Today there wasn´t many for lunch.


Also a small harbour, and the airport in the horizon.


Pics from the old preserved Bryggergård.








Wow, how it smell of history and countryside here.

Ramblersen has proposed to change this thread title, and to include other projects along the coast of Øst Amager. So I will, and let's start right away with the row houses at Amager Strandvej a bit closer to the city, where the demolishing of the old factory has begun to make space for the construction.

Strandhusene

Close to the Amager Strand Park, the Øresund Tower is on the way.






and the lower bloc next to the tower is progressing.

The newly restored and maybe also enlarged Park Inn Hotel.






Next to the hotel this glimpse of West Amager with Ferring and Crowne Plaza Tower

Super update Hafnia. Great to see that "highrise" by Oresund metro station being built. It will give a more Riviera character to Amager Strand.

I bet it was cold out there on West Amager.
Have you should tried "Rabarbar Mums" at Kystens Perle. Ummmmm!

Sorry to mix up the tour, back to the Scanport area again with a couple of shots from the Nordhuset, the only finished building, now home for Japanese Astella Pharma with 65 employees, and to judge from the cars registrations almost half of the employees coming from Sweden.

Your photos here turn up as red Xs, also those from the Courthouse post. What´s wrong? The Kastrup pictures are fine.

Everything OK now!
