HafenCity development seems to speed up.

Competitions for construction area number 80 started last month (close to Hafen City University)


as well as the competition for the buildings around the Lola-Rogge Square


So hopefully I can present some new renders soon

By European standards, this project muss be pretty unique. I can't imagine a comparable project of this size in the EU. Congrats! But will there be any reconstruction efforts regarding the town's architectural heritage?

Nine Elms in London
Fjord City in Oslo
Überseestadt in Bremen

The uniqueness of Hamburgs central construction area in Europe is not the size of this single project, but the overall development area "Sprung über die Elbe" (roughly 1000 hectares) wich combines several boardering development areas. The Hafen City is just one of them.
From north to south: Hafen-City, Elbbrückenzentrum, other Hammerbrook redevelopment projects, Überseezentrum, Grasbrook, Dykepark (Veddel, ballinstadt+Noth Wilhemsburg), Veddeler Markt, Reichststraße and Wilhemsburg upper quarters, Weltquartier, IBA-Quartiere and Areas, IGS-Areas, Southern Wilhemsburg, EcoCity, Schlossinsel, Chanel Harburg - to mention some of those areas.

How this looks on a birdview map I tried to show here. The map is an ongoing project by me. I calculate to finish the map in spring next year...

To your second question. Yes. Currently 3 cities in Germany found their individual style for important projects in the city center, that at least "play" with the historical heritage (Berlin, Hamburg and Duesseldorf). It is a beginning of some kind of rethinking.

Marseille Euromediterranée which is often presented as "Europe's largest urban regeneration project" might be the equivalent of Hamburg Hafencity in South Europe.

Claiming to have the biggest develompent area is nothing else but marketing. I would basically give a shit. Its a question how you draw the boarders (which are flexible) of the area and which criterias you choose. In hectares? In construction volume? In Dollars you invest? Inner city? Suburb? Industrial or Living/Commercial?
Everyone will find a combination of boarder definations and criteria definations to advertise his project as the "biggest"
For example the area in Marseille is bigger as Nine Elms in hectares, but the total investments in $ are lower. So which one is bigger? And is the Marseille area really bigger as the area in NineElms? If you check the map almost half of all buildings in that area already exist and nothing will happen to them, but they are still in the boarders of the develompment area. Other projects like the "Belle de Mai" are not even connected to the area, while NineElms, HafenCity and Überseestadt in Bremen are really "one"

So I think, there is no "biggest" project in Europe.
There are many large scale urban developments going on in Europe more or less equal to each other. Unfortunately they are overshined by the lots of more agessive advertised projects in the middle east an asia.

Indeed. There are many big inner city projects all across Europe. Hamburg is not the only one. And you know what, thats great. Its great because it shows there is a real trend in expanding urban areas again, not merely further inflating suburbia while the centre decays. (And if you look beyond Europe you will see that the trend can be found in many parts of the world)

Hm, I'm not a fan of the configuration of the Baakenhafen Bridge. Cyclists have to mingle with car traffic on a small strip of road with nothing that keeps them physically safe from cars? The bicycle trail should have been on the other side of those walls...

well thats true, but its going to be (more or less) just a residential road, so in my opinion its even better if its on the road. So as a cyclists you don't need to go thru an pedestrian slalom

Found by accident a close up Render of one of the Watertowers which will rise in the Baakenhafen-Quarter

By the way: Studio Gang was in 2006 one of the invited architect groups to create some Ideas for the Chicago Square, the most eastern quarter of the HafenCity. This was their entry
