Demolition has started in Gellerup so probably about time to open a new thread about this interesting development. The vision is great, especially if the lightrail can be used to open up the area.

The Dispositionsplan gives a great overview of the project and includes a lot of images. Politken also ran an interesting article on the project and the hopes of the residents for a brighter future in this drab area:
En anekdote fra indvielsesdagene lyder, at arkitekten så sin kone græde ved synet af Gellerupparken og troede, hun var bevæget over byggeriets storhed. I stedet stod hun og græd, fordi stedet så »så forarmet« ud.
This is by far the most ambitious project to date in Denmark for transforming a ghetto area. If successful it will set standards for the whole country and perhaps beyond. If not, it will not only be a catastrophe for Århus and Gellerup but for all ghetto areas in the country.











Video and picture of the demolition:

I think this thread should have the projects official name: "Masterplan for Gellerup and Toveshøj", since this huge project is not only about renovation, but indeed a complete reshaping of Gellerup with business, jobs, cultural instututions, shopping, condos, city park etc.etc.

Hopefully also some great architecture. At least one highrise at "Verdenspladsen" - the new central square - is planned and I think Brabrand Boligforening have plans to build a new office building for its own use on the corner of Edwin Rahrs Vej and Aaby Ringvej.

Also Aarhus Municipality will move part of its administration to a new building on Edwin Rahrs Vej just opposite the Bazaar. Around 1000 people will work there in a couple of years.

God ide, Phister! Nogen har vist også fået sneget en stavefejl ind i titlen så den bør nok ændres under alle omstændigheder.

Der er også planer for et højhus ved City Vest, så det giver vist tre højhuse i alt. Så vidt jeg kan se skal den kommunale administration ligge ved Verdenspladsen på det sted, hvor en af de tre nedrevne blokke står/stod.

Lige så dødsygt og brutalt området fremstår i dag, lige så spændende bliver det at følge ændringerne i de kommende år!

Hvis nogle har flere billeder eller illustrationer kan I poste dem her i tråden og så prøver jeg at tilføje dem til trådindledningen.

I'm trying to show an animation that shows the placement of both Brabrand Boligforenings highrise and the new building for Teknik- og Miljøforvaltningen, but I'm denied everytime I try. I would prefer to embed it, but I can't even paste it's url into this textbox. What am I doing wrong? Anyone?

Your link doesn't work all that well.
Still, I am sure you wanted to put it inside youtube brackets?

?

And speaking about such minor problems, the headline is still wrong - it says "og" where it should have been "of" ,
I suppose, this can be fixed by using the "go advanced" button.
Will try to alert other thread owners about similar problems.

Thanks for the video which I have added to the first post. As the video shows many parts of the project remain undecided after 2017...

I have tried editing the title but I think Movetaem has to help us out here.

^^ Very, very interesting news. According to Børsen's picture, the project involves the area between Gudrunsvej and Ringvejen, which was originally intended for a highway back in the 70s.

I think the strip is owned by Brabrand Boligforening, which also owns Gellerupparken, and it is part of the masterplan. It would be a huge boost for the masterplan, if that's the area involved.



So far the left part of the area has been reserved for Brabrand Boligforening's new office building, but a norwegian billionaire can probably change that plan.

http://jyllands-posten.dk/aarhus/ECE7668624/Trecifret-millioninvestering-p%C3%A5-vej-til-Gellerupparken/

... selskabet [har] underskrevet en betinget købskontrakt med Brabrand Boligforening om et 60.000 kvm stort areal - Ringvejskilen Nord.

"Vi er kun et lille skridt fra en særdeles attraktiv og centralt beliggende grund i Aarhus med et kæmpe potentiale. Vi har endnu ikke lagt os endeligt fast på udviklingen af grunden, men det vil blive et miks af private boliger og handel i den lidt større skala. Udviklingen af området vil understøtte helhedsplanen og transformationen af Gellerupparken til en attraktiv og international bydel centralt i Aarhus," skriver Stephan Sørensen, direktør i Reitan Ejendomsudvikling, i en pressemeddelelse.

Timetable for the municipality's new office building on Edwin Rahrs Vej. Construction will begin in a year. Finished ultimo 2018.

Perhaps we should change the thread from "demolition" to "construction" since construction of the new daycare center and first stage of the new infrastructure has been going on for a while.
