Start of construction works for “Baakenpark” in the eastern HafenCity.

In September 2014 the construction works for the so-called “Baakenpark”, the attractive heart and recreational area in HafenCity’s east, started.

“Baakenpark” will be a new peninsular in the Baaken port, created by hydraulic filling. A playground, a community centre as well as trees and pastures will invite visitors to spend their leisure time and to recreate. Main construction works include the removal of silt, hydraulic filling of approximately 350,000 cbm of sand dredged from the Northern Elbe as well as the installation of underwater sheet pile walls, quay wall connections, breasting dolphins and revetment.

HafenCity Hamburg GmbH awarded Sellhorn Ingenieurgesellschaft and a partner company the tasks of carrying out a feasibility study, the planning works, local site supervision and construction management.
