Welcome to City Nord

End of the 50s, the then chief architect Werner Hebebrand Hamburg developed a concept for a city office. The ambitious project, optimal settlement conditions to provide the headquarters of major corporations in an attractive location close to the city, was at that time one of the largest and most demanding urban development projects in Europe.

50 years later the City North looks to an enormous change. Almost all companies have invested millions into upgrading their homes. Many new buildings emerged in the recent past, some are under construction and more are planned.

The original quality of the business location is rediscovered today. Was the mid-90s still the talk of vacancies, today rent-free space can hardly be found. Currently, the City Nord leads the Hamburg real estate market with an extremely low vacancy rate of 2.1%.

Since its creation time the City Nord is currently experiencing the highest construction activity and performs a conversion into the modern age.

About 30,000 employees appreciate the proximity to downtown, the airport, and last but not least to the city park.

The City Nord presents itself.
