Planning security and efficient implementation

As general contractor for the construction of the Urban Living residential complex in Hamburg-Altona, PORR played to its strengths: implementing yield-oriented real estate projects with maximum efficiency and reliable planning for the client, while delivering excellent execution quality. The 9-storey building with a gross floor area of around 12,500m2 houses 327 flats, as well as a number of communal areas and underground parking spaces for cars and bicycles.

Growing demand for micro-living

Young people who move around frequently due to their studies or work appreciate the comfort and flexibility of apartment complexes like Urban Living Hamburg. Limited-term housing for a flat, an all-in rental fee, and without having to worry about furnishings, electricity providers or internet provision – this is the perfect solution for students, young professionals and interim managers. They can choose from deluxe flats starting at 20m2 and penthouse flats of around 40m2 with their own roof terrace.

The communal spaces are a great place to meet like-minded people who want a break from their private environment and enjoy cooking, working out or gardening together.

Perfect coordination – top quality

The client and operator of Urban Living Hamburg, i Live Group, is committed to pioneering innovation in the field of micro-living and has decades of experience in project planning and development. The project was notable for its flexible planning steps and perfect coordination with the client’s in-house general property planner. The close integration of the processes was the basis for the successful realization of the high quality standards. Technical optimization suggestions were evaluated in a team with the general planner and client and implemented promptly. Despite cramped conditions on the construction site and difficult crane construction, the project was completed at the agreed time.
