Completed in 2016
In 2011, Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects, Christensen & Co Architects, COBE, NORD Architects and Effekt won the process competition for the new station area, Building Section 8, issued by Carlsberg City.
Carlsberg's urban development project received the award 'Best Masterplan' in 2009. The masterplan contains a total of 600,000 m2, of which Building Section 8 in the southern part of the Carlsberg area makes up 82,000 m2. This is the largest private project in Denmark.
The architectural consultancy of Building Section 8 has been carried out in constructive dialogue with Carlsberg City Ejendomme P/S and the University of Applied Sciences UCC, which are moving into 57,000 m2 of the total approx. 82,000 m2 large construction.
UCC expects approx. 10,000 students and approx. 1,000 teachers on their new Campus. The other part of the building includes 6,000 m2 of shops, 3,000 m2 of business and 16,000 m2 of housing - of which 88 owner-occupied homes in a 100 m high tower.
From now on, all motorised traffic from the south to Carlsberg Byen will pass from Vigerslev Allé via a new bridge over the railway and through The Golden Gates' between the 100 m high tower and The Hanging Gardens'. 10,000 train passengers will use the new Carlsberg Station every day, move across the station square and the Campus Square and on into Carlsberg Station.
Bicycle and car parking will mainly take place in a 19,000 m2 basement throughout Building Section 8.
The entire construction complies with the Building Regulations' requirements for low energy class 2015.
