17.04 City North

Wednesday 17 of April we went on an expedition in Hamburg. The first place we visited was City North.

City North is an area with many environmentally friendly buildings. There are 300 different companies placed there and approximately 30 000 employed. Among the companies placed there are Tschibo, Hanse net, Deutche Post, Edeka, Signal Iduna, RWE Dea, Siemens, AG, Vattenfall Europe, Allianz Immobilien etc. The reason why so many companies are settled in City North is because it was not enough space in the city center. They started the building in 1957. At that time there where not many building demands but it was important for the companies that the buildings contributed to a green living. That is why they had kindergartens there, where the employers’ children could go. The buildings in City North are 45 000 less energy driving. For that reason City North has become a popular place for a company to settle. The streets in City North are named after international cities.
