Nordhavnen, located only 4km from the city centre of Copenhagen, is the largest metropolitan development project in Scandinavia in the years to come. With its fantastic accessibility to the city's core infrastructure and direct access to the water, Nordhavnen will become a unique city district. The post-industrial harbour site will be developed over the next 40-50 years, featuring a total floor area of up to 4,000,000 m2, providing living space for 40,000 inhabitants and workspace for another 40,000 people. Located on the Øresund coast, Nordhavnen will utilize its direct access to the sea by providing a multitude of recreational urban spaces and public facilities at the water.
