The master plan for Hamburg’s HafenCity, published in 2000, was an in­ter­na­tion­al­ly recog­nised com­pe­ti­tion success for KCAP Ar­chi­tects & Planners, ASTOC Ar­chi­tects and Planners and Ham­burg­plan AG. On a total area of approx. 150 hectares of land pre­vi­ous­ly part of the port space and right on the wa­ter­front, the plan provides for the pro­gres­sive creation of flats for 12,000 people and around 40,000 jobs by the mid-2020s. The excellent potential of HafenCity lies in linking the city centre to the harbour and to the river Elbe with direct sight lines and paths through city areas cul­mi­nat­ing in a dis­tinct­ly maritime at­mos­phere.

Following re­lo­ca­tion of the inner city port op­er­a­tions to the container port on the Unterelbe, in the 1990s the unused port land provided space for living and working by the water. For its HafenCity, Hamburg wanted a new European city district for the 21st century with future-oriented designs which would merge the old and the new city and bring the inner city closer to the water with a specific local identity.

ASTOC supported the HafenCity Hamburg master plan until it reached “maturity” and was the guiding light for sub­se­quent con­struc­tion projects and thematic focuses of the office. There were also follow-on projects, such as the res­i­den­tial tower block and the office and res­i­den­tial building Ost/West at Holzhafen Hamburg.
