Stigsborg Waterfront is a large urban redevelopment project located on the waterfront, close to the city centre of Aalborg in Denmark.
The City and Port of Aalborg carried out a coordinated planning process to redevelop industrial sites into 400,000m2 of private and public housing, retail and office space, and a new school. 7,500 new inhabitants are expected to move into the neighbourhood in the next 25-30 years.
In 2017, the City of Aalborg, PFA and A. Enggaard A/S established a public-private development company to carry out the first phase with approx. 188,000m2 of buildings.
The ambitious development plan encompasses strategic, physical and economic planning. A large part of the site sits on a former chemical plant, and extensive environmental surveys and plans have been carried-out to ensure a safe, healthy and attractive neighbourhood.
COWI has carried out a wide range of consultancy services. We worked closely with architects Team Vandkunsten, and financial and commercial property advisers, to create the urban redevelopment plan.
