Living by the park

  • Total area:

    13 ha

  • Housing units:

    approx. 650

  • Leafy and open space:

    approx. 4 ha

  • Industrial real estate:

    2.000 m²

Already during the International Building Exhibition IBA Hamburg, the approx. 13-hectare project area (then known as Haulander Weg), located on the southern edge of the Wilhelmsburger Inselpark (map), was the focus of urban development.

From 2015, IBA Hamburg assessed a project development emphasising the possibilities for realising residential construction. Within this framework, urban development options were worked out, and assessments and feasibility studies prepared.

These have determined a potential for the construction of some 650 new housing units. In this way, the high quality of the area, with its (for a big city) highly exceptional location directly by the Wilhelmsburger Inselpark, could be put to good use. In addition, the Inselpark would then gain a new urban context on its south-western edge, rounding off the developments in Wilhelmsburg Mitte and the Neue Hamburger Terrassen (New Hamburg Terraces).

What happens next?

After the elaboration of important local framework conditions, an urban/open space development planning qualification procedure is planned in order to drive forward plans for the new residential district on the southern edge of the Wilhelmsburger Inselpark. In this regard, a participation process is to be developed so that the suggestions and interests of citizens can be incorporated into the planning.

On the basis of the results of the qualification process, more in-depth considerations will follow, so that the required legal land use planning process can then be initiated.

District development in Wilhelmsburg

The three project areas of the Spreehafenviertel (Spreehafen District), Elbinselquartier (Elbe Island District) and Wilhelmsburger Rathausviertel (Wilhelmsburg Town Hall District) run from the north of the island to the Inselpark. The potential for residential construction here could provide around 4,900 new housing units. A particular feature is the green axis to be created by the developments.

With Georgswerder in the east of the island, a further 190 housing units and businesses will be added.

Another approx. 800 housing units may be built in the Georg-Wilhelm-Höfe (Georg-Wilhelm Courtyards) and Inselparkquartier (Inselpark District). Here, the, legal land use planning procedures are currently being prepared or are up and running.
