Hamburg is enjoying great popularity – among new residents, visitors and investors alike. In terms of working, living and leisure, our city’s attractiveness continues to grow further, which is not only thanks to large-scale urban development projects that are setting the bar as model and innovative districts, but also thanks to careful, consistent inner-city development and the conversion of former industrial sites.
Hamburg’s biggest plus is perhaps its diversity, which manifests itself e.g. in the Hanseatic city’s proverbial cosmopolitanism as well as the broad range of creative approaches in the area of building and housing that take account of demographic change and the changing demands of citizens. As affordable living is one of our basic needs, we are committed to supporting all those who contribute to jointly shaping our growing city.
Therefore, Hamburg is delighted to be featured with a presentation at this year’s MIPIM, and I look forward to meeting you there!
