Hillerød | Projects & Construction

Hillerød

Hillerød is located 40 km north of Copenhagen and has a population of 30.350 inhabitants, making it the 22nd largest town in Denmark. It is the seat of Hillerød Municipality which has a pipulation of 48,104.

Hillerød is connected to Copenhagen by the E line of the S-train network. Travelling time to Nørreport Station in the city centre is 35 minutes. Local railway lines continues north to Hundested, Gilleleje and Helsingør.

The town is most known for Frederiksborg Castle to which it owes its esistance. Projects of architectural interest are far between but Hillerød is increasingly developing into a commersial and educational centre for the area and seems to be facing a positive development in much the same way as Køge in the other end of the Copenhagen Metropolitan Area.

This thread is for projects in the town of Hillerød as well as the rest of the municipality. Maybe it will also be most natural to use it for projects in some surrounding communities such as Fredensborg. My local knowledge of Hillerød or the status of its major projects is not exactly the best so please help correcting possible misunderstandings or providing updated information.

Anyway, some of the main projects in Hillerød at the moment are:

Hillerød Station Zone
The area around Hillerød Station - until now extremely sleepy - will be redeveloped into a new urban district which will be integrated with the city centre and dominated by educational institutions, youth housing and knowledge industry businesses. The competition for a masterplan for the first stage of the Station Zone was won by Holscher Arkitekter. It includes a new Hillerød campus for University College of Copenhagen (UCC) which is also planing a campus in the Carlsberg area in Copenhagen.

Hospital Nordsjælland, new S-train station and surrounding district
The new hospital - which will replace the old Hillerød Hospital as well as those in Helsingør and Frederikssund - will be located at Overdrevsvej between Hillerød and Allerød next to a new S-train station. The hospital has a budget of 3.8 billion. Until now, Cowi and Arhus Arkitekterne have been engfaged as advisors (bygherrerådgiver and funktionsrådgiver) and the architectural competition will be launched ultimo 2012 or primo 2013. Construction start is expected to be in 2016 and the hospital is supposed to be completed in about 2020. A new district is also going to be developed around the new station but I don think plans are very far yet.

Møllebrocenteret
Michael Goldschmidt Holding is planning a shopping centre but a rammelokalplan which was adopted in 2009 has been overruled by the Nature Board of Appeal and now a new is on the way. It is expected that the centre will include an IKEA. A 50 m hotel was originally part of the project but has been put on hold for now although the developer still wants a hotel project to be part of the new rammelokalplan.

Link





Ullerødbyen
Ullerødbyen is a new district which fully developed will comprise 1,500 new dwellings on 150 ha of land. Combining single family homes with dense-low developments and apartment buildings, the main feature of the masterplan is that it seeks to integrate the district with the surrounding landscape and emphasizes the proximity of nature.

Link






Slotssøkarréen
In 2006, the Municipality held a competition for the renewal of the so-called Slotssøkarréen, an area on the banks of the Castle Lake. The competition was won by Fogh & Følner. However the project was put on hold in 2008 due to lack of funds.

UCC's new Hillerød Campus designed by Hou + Partners which seems to have been under construction since April last year. A shame they couldn't go for something a little moreinteresting:

It's great to have another dedicated thread for the "big" towns around Copenhagen.
Now we just need a dedicated thread for Roskilde and Helsingør. Is there anyone in here who has a thorough knowledge of these two cities.

Asgaard Group has acquired an option for another 67,129 sqm of land in the new Hillerød South area next to the new Hospital and S-train station. In 2009 they acquired 16 hectares of land with room for a total 700,000 sqm of buildings when fully developed. It is still unknown what the land can and will be used for since the masterplan for the area is still not finished. Hvidt Arkitekter has been commissioned to make a proposal.

A sketch proposal as to how the new combined S train and lokal bane station at Hillerød Syd (Super Hospital) would be like.
There are also proposals for a reconstruction of Hillerød station which would allow the lokal bane trains to run directly through the station from Helsingør / Gilleleje / Tisvildeleje to Frederiksværk and Hundested.

This building with youth housing (78 units, 1-2 rooms) has been under construction at Hillerød Campus next to the railway tracks and the upcoming UCC building since March this year. It is designed by 1:1 Arkitekter and will be completed next year.

A report from Cowi has shown that the new Hospital in Hillerød is DKK 700 mio. short and is therefore expected to shrink. Part of the reason is that construction costs are significantly higher in the Capital Area than in other parts of the country - something which the old government did not take account of when they handed out the billions for super hospital projects around the country. From all the current talk about a new Municipal Redistribution of Funds scheme (Kommunal Udligningsordning) I had kind of understood that we were supposed to have the same level of welfare and public service in all parts of the country. But apparantly all the hospitals we are going to build are not supposed to be of the same standard and offer the same capacity relative to population in their encatchment area?

Billions of kroners are rolling from east to west, and if you think we have the same standard, you have to re-think !
What else can you expect in a country where the minority of the population are working and the lowest salaries are lower than the highest social welfare.

More on this: The original project will be cut down with 16,000 sqm. Simply grotesque

The proposed integration of the three local railways at Hillerød Station has come a step closer after the estimated costs of the project has gone down from DKK 300 mio. to just 29 mio. The project will connect the south-west bound Frederiksværk Railway to the north-bound Gribskov Railway (to Gilleleje and Tisvildeleje) and Lille Nord Railway (to Helsingør), enabling people coming from the north to travel directly to the future (No-So-)Super Hospital without hacing to change trains at Hillerød Station.

Hillerød's mayor now tries to get funds for the project from the billion which is going to be handed out to traffic projects around the country after the toll ring around Copenhagen was given up. Another project on the local wish list is a solution which will enable the Holte trains to continue all the way to Hillerød, allowing for 5 min. operations to Hillerød.

Asgaard Group has presented Hillerød Municipality with a sketch prosal from Hvidt Arkitekter for a masterplan the future Hillerød Syd district at the new station and hospital - and the landmark skyscraper is still part of it:

The hospital in Hillerød has shrunk with 28 percent due to the underfunding.
