The Streets of Aarhus District
A sustainable powerhouse with community at its centre
In North Habour in Copenhagen, a multi-user house is growing up with great ambitions for the environment and community - and it is created to play beautifully with the surrounding city.
By & Havn has entered ian agreement with KPC to buy two of the most visible and attractive business grounds in Streets of Aarhus District in North Harbour. Here, KPC will erect the new multi-user house together with metro and the rest of the district. The agreement itself is due to a process in which By & Havn has requested potential investors to send their expressions of interest, so that conditional sales agreements could be entered with respective partners that has been estimated to be able to furfil the wishes of the two building grounds.
In the selection of KPC, By & Havn have especially empasized that the multi-user house needs to have a great level of ambition in regards to sustainability, that is plays into the surroundings, and not at least, it redeems the ambition of creating a multi-user house with both common canteen and a fitness/co-working café, so the house will contribute with future communities in and around North Harbour.
The two building grounds in the Streets of Aarhus District have been offered together. Together, they withhold 8,000 square meters of floor and is situated towards Kalkbrænderhavnsgade og Streets of Aarhus-street with great visibility from North Harbour Train Station and the upcoming North Harbour Metro Station that will open in the beginning of 2020. Due to its central location, the coming multi-user house will turn into the gate of the lively Streets of Aarhus District where there already live around 2,500 people plus 700 people work. The district contains several stores, supermarkets, restaurants, and cafés.
The new multi-user house is created to fulfil the demands of DGNB Platin that is the highest sustainble DGNB-certification.
Our ambition is to create a sustainble powerhouse with community at its centre. A powerhouse that exudes life from early morning until late in the evening — and contributes to the sharing economy in the development of the workplaces of the future.Jesper Jørgensen / Head of Development in KPC
