From 2003 one of the largest urban development projects in Europe began to take shape on 160 hectares of port land between Kehrwiederspitze and the Elbe bridges: HafenCity. By 2025 a vibrant and densely settled urban milieu with a strong maritime note will have been established here, combining working, living quarters, culture, leisure, tourism and the retail trade. Nearly 7,000 dwellings and over 45,000 jobs will have been created.
