Hamburg: City gets innovation center back on track


The stalled mega-project Hammerbrooklyn, an innovation center for digital and mobility companies at the edge of downtown Hamburg, is moving forward again. Economic senator Michael Westhagemann has called the embattled initiators back to the table and brought about a solution. The city and developer Art-Invest will establish a non-profit foundation, which will operate the core of the project called “Pavillon” and receive 10 % of the total project, which is now estimated at €200mn. At the 7,600 sqm Pavillon on Stadtdeich, events will be offered to make the innovative progress of the digital transformation usable for companies and accessible to the public. Until the opening in the spring of 2020, a temporary structure will serve the participating companies as a future lab starting this June. By early 2025 at the latest, another 40,000 to 50,000 sqm floor space will be built. An ideas competition will be announced this fall.
