Carlsberg City District

Carlsberg City District

The former brewery site is changing into a diverse and creative city district defined by the unique mixture of modern architecture and beautiful historical buildings. The combination of densely-built buildings, charming spaces and squares, narrow streets and alleys combined with green parks and nine residential towers ranging from 50 to 120 meters in height presents a harmonic totality.

The area was used for brewing by Carlsberg until 2008 and within the next 8-10 years the new city district is being developed into a vibrant and diverse new city district. When fully developed Carlsberg City District will comprise 600, 000 square meters divided into 45% residential, 45% retail, offices and educational institutions and 10% cultural and sport facilities. The new city district will provide approximately 3,000 homes, 4,500 parking spaces and 10,000 jobs.

  • Until 2008 the area was used for brewing by Carlsberg. During the next 8-10 years it will change into a compact, multifunctional and creative city district in a mixture of iconic industrial buildings and modern architecture, narrow streets and alleys, squares and slim high-rises.
  • Carlsberg City District is situated in the center of Copenhagen, only 2 km from the City Hall square and offers easy access to highways, 500 meters from the metro and is less than 15 minutes from Scandinavia’s largest airport. 
  • The newly constructed railway station; Carlsberg Station will be the central connection hub and main entrance to the new city district. Carlsberg Station opens July 3rd 2016 and is expected to be one of the busiest in Copenhagen with approximately 24,000 travelers on a daily basis.
  • Furthermore a vast network of bicycle paths will be an integrated part of Copenhagen’s system of cycling lanes. 
  • In order to ensure a unique identity and historical equity of the new city district a large part of Carlsberg’s premises will remain and be assigned to cultural purposes. 
  • In September 2016 Campus Carlsberg, UCC, opens for more the 10,000 students and 800 employees and will when fully developed hold up approximately 55,000 square meters.
