Topping-out ceremony at Harburger Ring 6 in Hamburg

18 months after laying the foundation stone, PORR's Hamburg building construction team has completed the extended shell of the 11-storey apartment building project at Harburger Ring 6 with the active support of their Polish colleagues. The topping-out ceremony was held on 2 November 2023 in the presence of around 100 guests, including representatives of the project and area developer BPD Bouwfonds Immobilienentwicklung, the future operator Greystar, the architectural firm Schenk Fleischhaker and the PORR Hamburg branch.

On an area of around 8,500 m2, the building offers around 2,500 m2 of usable space for catering and retail on the ground floor. The upper floors will house 203 micro-apartments and 31 multi-room flats.

Mark Kuijpers, Senior Managing Director, Greystar, describes the concept of Canvas Living, which will move into Harburger Ring 6: "This Hamburg residential project is aimed at young professionals, couples and students - target groups with an urban lifestyle that harmonise well with each other, as we experience at our other European locations. We have adopted typical elements of Hamburg architecture in the design."

Tobias Stüber, authorised signatory and Head of Investor Sales at BPD, adds: "This construction project on the site of the former Harburg Centre is a sustainable inner-city project development that is characterised by its central location and the future, attractive mixed use form. We are delighted to be able to bring the recently derelict site back to life."

The technical regional manager of PORR Region North, Björn Motzkus, is also completely satisfied: "Once again it has been proven that our holistic approach 'everything from a single source' contributes significantly to the completion and to more efficient processes. PORR Equipment Services organised the construction site logistics perfectly despite the limited space available and the PORR Düsseldorf branch was able to contribute its expertise in concrete technology." Motzkus expressly praises the partnership-based cooperation: "Harburger Ring 6 is a project of high construction quality, not least thanks to the active collaboration of all those involved."
