Is Hafencity the biggest development in Europe? Bigger than the Docklands or the Olympic Park in London?

I hope they redevelop the Royal Docks in London like this one.

one more link to a commercial trailer on youtube about the overseas quarter (Überseequartier) project in the center of the new Hafencity district.
It shows 9.23 mins of 3d renderings of the whole area together with a made-up little story about a shipowner from the 19th century who sees modern Hamburg in his dreams and wonders.. Its in german but it doesn´t really matter, just watch..

@ El Greco:

this shows the most eastern part of Hafencity. this area is going to be the latest part of the development. each section and street is marked with a date.
dates might change a bit but this is the most recent point of planning

seen on the german daf board, thanks to Waxo Khana

yes, thats quite some time, but they have to find different investors for each one of these properties, and the whole area is huge.
latest numbers i have heard of are 15.000 inhabitants and 55.000 workplaces plus huge areas with promenades, parks, places, for which the city has to pay, and those are not of the cheaper standard style.
i guess its better to plan that step by step.
another factor is that on quite a number of those properties existing buildings are still in use (with contracts running out in a few years)

if you are interested in checking out the area you shoud use the federal german site of something similar to google maps (which shows better picture material of that area than the american original - if you zoom in closely). google maps pics are from 2006, the "Bundesamt für Kartographie und Geodäsie" viewer has 2009 material. its a little oldschool in handling, you have to get used to it

Hamburg can be really happy to have such a quality project on such a scale. Especially when you compare it to the boring new city quarters they construct in other German cities. Of course the water and port make it easier to have an interesting city quarter but IMO the architecture is also more innovative. Would like to see more highrises though.

Agree. The project is certainly a high quality project but a few classy highrises would give the area that little extra so it really stands out.

The west part of Hafencity is more or less completed with tons of expensive and super expensive condos and appartments . The central ( ÜQ) quarter u/c will host also a lot of homes for the wealthy ones . They are the clients of the investors . Nobody of them will " get shadowed " from skyscrapers in their new hood , at least that's what the investors thought .Those "clients" are able to look skyscrapers in Paris , NYC , Rio or Singapur just at the same day (not all together) , because they can afford it !!!
