The Carlsberg Brewery production plant in Copenhagen was closed down in 2008. The former industrial site renowned for its rich architectural legacy has been re-emerging as a new sustainable city district: a dense city structure with attractive urban spaces, public transport, and new buildings that complement the existing historical structures.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen, Holscher Nordberg Architects, Züblin and COWI will design a new 36,000 m2 mixed-use development consisting of a city block and a 80 metre high residential tower, situated close to the famous Elephant gates in the North Western corner of the Carlsberg site. The development will comprise of 17,000m2 housing, 7,000m2 offices, 2,000m2 retail, cafés and restaurants and 10,000 m2 basement space.

“There are many parametres coming into play at this unique site in Copenhagen. The new building is part of the special historical context of Carlsberg, with its close proximity to the Elephant gates, where it will form a link between the two main public squares, Ottilia Jacobsen Square and Bryggernes Square. The location, with historic neighbours and a sloping terrain, creates an exciting and technical challenge. At the same time, the tower will rise above Carlsberg City and become part of Copenhagen’s new skyline, thus becoming a reference point that both historically and physically will help tie the city together”, says Senior Partner Kristian Ahlmark.

When completed in 2024, Carlsberg City will be a vivid and diverse neighbourhood for living, working, learning and socialising. Daily commutes to and from the district will be primarily human-powered thanks to a vast network of bicycle paths, and a new modern commuter railway station, which is expected to become one of the busiest in Copenhagen. Modern and sustainable developments will mix with listed buildings. Shops and offices will integrate with housing, educational and daycare centres. In total, the development will offer over 3000 new homes available at various price levels, whilst 10,000 students have already begun their first semester at the new UCC Campus Carlsberg inaugurated earlier this year.
