Future living starts here and now. Innovative architecture, outstanding infrastructure and diverse cultural offerings – there are many aspects making up HafenCity’s special charm. With Engel & Völkers you can experience the fascination of the new, vibrant city core in the heart of Hamburg in a unique way: Live in a freehold waterfront apartment and enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, the inner city, the harbour and the Elbe.
In a joint venture with Quantum Immobilien AG, Engel & Völkers AG is developing an innovative ensemble of buildings with unobstructed views, directly on the Elbe, consisting of three main sections: the “STRANDHAUS by Richard Meier” with high quality freehold apartments, the new Engel & Völkers headquarters, and 30 rental apartments.
The responsibility for the entire project architecture lies with the internationally renowned architect’s office “Richard Meier & Partners Architects LLP New York”. The 15-storey residential tower with freehold apartments will be placing a clear accent in the skyline of southern Hamburg in the near future.
Outstanding living conditions
HafenCity, which is perfectly situated between the Elbe and the historic Speicherstadt warehouse district, is considered to be one of Europe’s most promising urban development projects. This is demonstrated impressively in the easy access from the Hamburg city centre, the diverse cultural and gastronomical offerings as well as the attractive infrastructure, which includes schools, nursery schools and universities
The area surrounding the freehold apartments in the “STRANDHAUS by Richard Meier” reflects the special urban-maritime character of the HafenCity in all its facets. Be it the cultural highlights at the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, the shopping facilities, the recreational opportunities, or the excellent public transport connections – HafenCity is already well underway in becoming a modern, maritime urban quarter.
You will also be able to take advantage of the many shopping and leisure opportunities to be offered in the southern Überseequartier district. Currently, around 60,000 sqm of retail and foodservice space is under development, including flagship stores by international labels. Experience peaceful moments in the family-friendly Grasbrookpark or conveniently take the bus or metro to the city centre from a nearby station.
The advantages of living at the waterfront
The “STRANDHAUS by Richard Meier” is located at Strandkai/Grosser Grasbrook and offers spectacular views of the Elbe, the harbour, the HafenCity with the Elbe Philharmonic Hall as well as the cruise ships at the Cruise Center HafenCity.
All the buildings in the HafenCity are protected against high water levels by a state-of-the-art dwelling mound system. Spacious underground car parks are also being built in this area. The “STRANDHAUS by Richard Meier” has its own four-storey underground parking garage.
What it means to live in the “STRANDHAUS by Richard Meier”
The overriding wish of architect Richard Meier is that its occupants view the Strandhaus as more than merely a home. And it is, for various reasons. Here you can enjoy the advantages of a concierge service and experience the convenience of an in-house lobby and a fitness room on the upper level. Each apartment is distinguished by a smart floor plan and the highest standard of living. The size of the apartments ranges from a compact 60 to a generous 300 square metres. Ceiling-high doors, high quality materials and down-to-floor windows underline the modern character of the apartments.
The building complex is expected to be completed at the beginning of May 2018.
