Hamburger Speicherstadt – Warehouse Block V

Currently in the planning stage is Speicherblock V in Hafencity, which is being converted for new uses in keeping with its status as a listed building. The focus of this conversion is on sustainability through the re-use of the building’s cultural heritage and the preservation of components that indicate its former function. Hamburg’s Speicherstadt, located in the heart of the Port of Hamburg, is the world’s largest contiguous, uniformly shaped warehouse ensemble. Since 2015, the listed buildings of the Speicherstadt, together with the adjacent Kontorhaus district and the Chilehaus, have been UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The development concept of the Authority for Urban Development and the Environment envisages the further development of the area into an attractive link between the city centre and HafenCity. Block V, built in 1907 by the architects Hanssen & Meerwein, is located on the southern edge along Brooktorkai, with a view of St. Annenplatz from the head building in the west.
Particularly striking in this warehouse row is the design of red brickwork with white and green glazed accents, as well as the diverse decorative elements in the façade. As part of the renovation and modernisation work, flood safety and fire protection measures will be implemented and the facade and roof will be renovated. In addition, historical elements and details will be refurbished and repaired. In addition to the conversion of the existing commercial space for gastronomic, cultural and leisure purposes, the integration of office space is also being examined. The conversion measures support the goal of turning Speicherstadt into a lively quarter in the middle of the city centre.
