Leafy and open spaces
approx. 100 Hectares
At around 118 hectares, Oberbillwerder is not just Hamburg’s second-largest urban development project, it will also be the Hanseatic city’s 105th district. Here, lively neighbourhoods are being built and diverse opportunities for education, culture, leisure, sport and recreation will be provided.
A lively district is being planned on the roughly 20-hectare area, in the direct proximity of the Spreehafen, the Gründerzeit-era Reiherstiegviertel and the Ernst-August-Kanal.
The 47-hectare Elbinselquartier (Elbe Island District), in the heart of the Wilhelmsburg Island on the Elbe, is intended to develop into a model for success in creating good neighbourly relations between residential and commercial zones, allotments, open space, educational and care facilities.
The Wilhelmsburger Rathausviertel (Wilhelmsburg Town Hall District) will be the new heart of the district containing the town hall and community centre of Wilhelmsburg, student flats, commercial spaces, sports facilities and new kindergartens. This will create lively and liveable neighbourhoods over 32 hectares.
Around 11.6 hectares in area, Georgswerder is very centrally located but retains its leafy, village-like character. The Energy Hill Georgswerder and Dove-Elbe are two popular excursion destinations in its direct proximity.
This new, small residential district is to be built over 1.5 hectares, filling in a gap in the urban landscape in a particularly family-friendly way.
The approx. 13-hectare Inselparkquartier (Inselpark District) may potentially be built on the southern edge of the Inselpark in Wilhelmsburg. Current investigations have determined a potential for the construction of up to 650 new housing units.
The Fischbeker Reethen, in the south-west of the city, are to develop into a lively, urban and leafy district in which living close to nature and innovative working environments will coexist side-by-side.
The new residential area of Vogelkamp Neugraben is exceptionally located on the periphery of the city and in the direct neighbourhood of the ecologically important nature reserve and EU bird sanctuary of the “Moorgürtel”. Around 2/3 of the 70-hectare area have already been completed.
On the area of the former Röttiger Kaserne barracks, a very liveable district is being built in the direct proximity of the Fischbeker Heide nature reserve. Detached, semi-detached and townhouses alongside small-scale apartment buildings with fantastic views of the heathlands characterise the construction. A large proportion is already complete.
