Nordhavnen - The sustainable city of the future.
The City of Copenhagen owns 55% of the CPH City and Port Development and the Danish government (the Ministry of Transport) owns 45%. CPH City and Port is in charge of the development of the areas it owns in Ørestad and in the Copenhagen harbour district, and is also behind the operation of the port.
CPH City and Port’s activities must be carried out on an ordinary business basis, for example through the sale of building rights. In the legislation that forms the basis for the development of Nordhavnen it is stated that work to develop the Inner Nordhavn site can be initiated now in a first development stage that comprises at least 400,000 sqm. of new floorspace and preservation of existing buildings with a total floor area of 70,000 sqm. In stage two, which is scheduled to begin in 2018, a further 200,000 sqm. may be developed. Eventually the entire Nordhavnen can be developed to include buildings with a total floor area of three to 4,000,000 sqm.
It is very important for CPH City and Port that the project is divided into stages that permit and promote development on a sound business basis.
