PROJECT | Frederiks Plads | U/C

Frederiks Plads - Aarhus Down Town.

The plan for this large project is to demolish the DSB component workshop and create a new centrally located district with 14-19 (63-81m) storey commercial buildings at one end, lower housing in the other - and with a large open space in the middle.

Developer: NCC Property Development A/S, Bricks A/S
Architect: C.F. Møller
Contractor: NCC.
Status: 2014 - 2018.


Official webside: http://www.ncc.dk/ledige-lokaler/sog...ederiks-plads/

It still looks nice IMO. Almost as importantly - some sort of mini cluster between the station and the harbour is rising.

There is a big summary in Aarhus Stiftidende about the project today. The developer and the municipaity seems to be in a positive dialogue. The local plan to remove the existing buildings is expected go through this summer. So if everything goes after their plan the developer expects to start demolishing this summer and start building start 2014. They expect the first buildings ready for use in 2016. 200 housing units are planed in the area close to frederiksbjerg in same scale as that area. And then the 6 building transforms steps up in scale to 16-19 floors next to the værkmestergade highrise.

Great stuff.

Please elaborate.

In business.dk you get the impression that we are talking about 100 units?
Quote:
Omkring 100 nye boliger på den del af området, der vender mod Jægergårdsgade skal også være med til at gøre Frederiks Plads levende.
Hope they stick to the current design:
Quote:
Lægger op til en meget åben bydel, som man let kan smutte ind i og gå igennem fra alle fire sider: Bruuns Galleri, Jægergårdsgade, Spanien og Værkmestergade.
Where the area actually becomes "inviting".

ps. Below, I'll copy two old posts to this tread where they belong.

Which is probably a good thing, even though some of us needs to muster more patience than comes naturally... as these processes feels like they go on for ever.

But sure, a lot of feelings are probably involved when we talk about these
old industrial areas:



Lots of interesting links to follow, e.g.:
Aarhus history:
Quote:
Centralværkstedet var gennem årene Århus' mest betydningsfulde arbejdsplads, hvor man reparerede lokomotiver, motorvogne og personvogne.
Det blev oprettet i 1862 af det britiske jernbanekompagni, samtidig med at den første jernbane i Jylland, Aarhus-Langå-Randers, blev sat i drift. I de første år bestod arbejdet hovedsageligt i at samle driftsmateriel, der var leveret fra England. I 1867 overtog staten jernbaneselskabet og De Danske Statsbaner (DSB) blev i 1880 oprettet ved en fusion af det private sjællandske jernbaneselskab og de jysk-fynske baner.
Komponent vaerkstedet:
Quote:
Centralværkstederne har gennem årene været byens største og mest betydningsfulde
arbejdsplads...I årene efter 2. verdenskrig nåede medarbejderstaben sit højdepunkt
med op mod 1800 beskæftigede.
But didn't run into any references that says the buildings in question are themselves historical monuments that can't be demolished? And with ''Godsbanen'' turned into a cultural institution, we don't need more old railway buildings for such purposes?
But well, we will see ...

Still, imho the NCC / Bricks project is absolutely gorgeous. And just what is needed to develop the downtown area, NCC.





And certainly hope they are right about the timetable for the project:
Quote:
Vi arbejder sammen med Aarhus Kommune på lokalplanen for området, og vi forventer at byggeriet kan starte med nedrivning og udgravning primo 2013 og selve byggeriet forventes at kunne starte medio 2013.
And now the start is 2014 ... ahh,well

Read recently that something in the order of 40.000 new homes
has to build be in the greater Aarhus area within the next 30 years (JP).

Which in my mind just makes the Frederiks Plads project even more logical.
Sure, you might not be able to find tenants for the whole project the first couple of years in this economy, but looking at a 30 year period the location should make this a super investment...



Actually, IMHO. I think you should (and could easily do) add 10 floors to at least a couple of the buildings, but that is no surprise on these pages
IMHO, it would be great both for the area and the city... but thats just me. Even without that it is still a super project.

In an age with few visions, there is one right here:
Quote:
Sammen med Bricks A/S, som er bygherre på boligerne, vil vi skabe en ny og sammenhængende bydel i den centrale del af Aarhus, en bydel, hvor der bliver åbnet for passage ind i og igennem bebyggelsen fra de omliggende gader og områder. Centralt i projektet er skabelsen af en ny stor plads midt i bebyggelsen, nemlig den nye Frederiks Plads, som lægger navn til projektet.


Back in december, I had hoped to get down there today to take some snaps of the existing buildings in the area. New and old.

Unfortunately, it was kind of dark already when I arrived.
Anyway, here is what I got:

image hosted on flickr

Bruuns gallery. Taken from what will hopefully one day be the Frederiks Plads area.

image hosted on flickr

The KPC building in the background. On the left side the offices of Danske Commodities and an employment center.
On the right side the area I think is the future Frederiks Plads center (please correct me if you think I get the geography wrong here).

IMHO the location is super for this coming area - and I can see no reason why not to demolish the buildings currently on this location, and put in some highrises...



Quote:
Projektet har som intention at skabe en ”velfungerende og hel by”, bestående af butikker som kan supplere Bruuns Galleri, moderne kontorarealer til erhverv og undervisning, moderne boliger med en særdeles attraktiv placering i centrum af byen
I think they should just start right away

sorry Simon it says 100 housing units in stiffen too. My mistake.

I think it goes through and if the completed design is nearly as good as it looks at the renderings it really should go through. I especially like the usage of yellow bricks and the glass which kind of merge the expression of the værkmestergade high-rise and banegåren and Park Allé. Let us hope for a quick process.

I don't think they should let the Cabinn hotel building through in Kanikegade but thats another story.

Article in Jyllandsposten Aarhus today. Not much news, but translated a few snippets:

""We have chosen not to construct a large square colossus, but 6 to 8 buildings of different height and size around an open square with shops and restaurants, which we have named Frederiks Plads", says CEO Philip Foss, Bricks A/S."

"The final plans are not fully in place yet, but he expects to present the project to the public and the Aarhus municipality planners sometime in March. Until further the City Council will consider a recommendation at today's meeting for demolition of the existing building, which takes a special district plan. Afterwards a district plan will be drawn for the future buildings."

"He expects that the highest of the future buildings will be 15-20 floors."

"The plan is to build 100-120 new homes which Bricks stands for."

Please allow me to post a slightly larger aerial rendering from C.F.Møller of the Bricks/Spanien project. (Our eyesight you know)
When Cobes project for Bruhns Galleri and the bus terminal site is added it will a real cool area.
