Praksis Architects recently won the competition for new housing for researcher workers in the old Carlsberg city in Copenhagen. On the occasion of brewer JC Jacobsen’s 200 year anniversary, the Carlsberg Foundation in 2011 announced an invited competition. The building of approx. 13 mill. euro will be located next to JC Jacobsen’s garden and the listed buildings, the Hanging Gardens and Mineral Factory as neighbors. The building of approx. 3,200 m2 must have 6 floors and contain 22 various types of apartments. The ground floor will contain exhibition and shopping facilities. More images and project description after the break.

The transaction includes a site area of 250,000 sq.m., attractively situated on the border of the Copenhagen city centre. The site’s history, location and size presents an attractive opportunity to create a new city district,”Carlsberg City”, where Danish industrial history meets the modern life of the big city. Carlsberg City will be developed into one of the most attractive parts of Copenhagen.

The total development floor area will cover 567,000 sq.m. floor area, offering a mix of commercial, residential and cultural areas. A number of buildings worthy of preservation will be refurbished, thereby ensuring the preservation of the old brewery’s unique 160 year heritage. In addition, more than 500,000 sq.m. buildings will be erected, including 9 slim high rise towers of up to 120 metres which will stand as markers for Carlsberg City and offer excellent views of Greater Copenhagen and Southern Sweden.

Carlsberg Byen is already experiencing strong interest from the investor and occupier markets, with several projects already pre-sold and construction of other significant developments expected to be initiated shortly. The investment in Carlsberg City fits the long term investment profiles of the consortium investors who expect to generate attractive returns on their investments over the contemplated development period of approx. 15 years.
