In Hamburg’s second largest urban development project, “Oberbillwerder,” some 6,500 apartments for around 15,000 residents and up to 5,000 jobs will be built on an area of approximately 118 hectares. The central element of the urban development concept are the Mobility Hubs, which will create urbanity as an essential component of the neighborhood centers. Several Mobility Hubs distributed throughout the district will accommodate Oberbillwerder’s stationary motor vehicle traffic, thereby releasing a potential of public space with high qualities and areas for further mobility offers. With their significant size, their respective location and the importance of their groundfloor zones, the Mobility Hubs shape the urban space.
The Mobility Hubs are characterized by a groundfloor with low-threshold offerings: Cafes and retail, as well as the so-called mobility foyers are located there. Information is provided about a wide variety of mobility offers and people can switch from one vehicle to the next. One focus is on the use of sustainable materials, as well as the possibility of deconstructing or converting parts of the structure.
