HafenCity with its eight sub-districts in development is being implemented in phases, bringing together a wide range of urban planning typologies to build attractive places to live and work. Urban functions as culture and education, leisure, tourism, and retail support the area's liveliness. Nowadays, more than 3.000 residential units are completed and approximately 14.000 people work in HafenCity as a whole, employed by more than 730 companies. Sustainable urban manufacturing, innovation, and environmental-friendly entrepreneurship are encouraged. Thoughtfully designed spaces for public interaction forge social interaction and exchange between a diverse range of residents, workers, and visitors.
