Hamburg’s Speicherstadt historical warehouse district was designated along with the neighbouring Kontorhaus area as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015. HHLA Real Estate ensured that the largest historic warehouse complex in the world was transformed into a lively city district used in a variety of creative ways.
Even though the former logistics centre is still a place where coffee and tea are savoured and carpets are sold, many warehouse blocks are bustling with museum visitors and hotel guests, advertisers, fashion buyers or young company founders. Due to the diversity of its uses and the combination of tradition and modernity, rental space in the Speicherstadt historical warehouse district is highly coveted. As it has for the past 135 years, HHLA will continue to ensure that the Speicherstadt a historically valuable and economically successful magnet for millions of visitors.
The KulturQuartier Speicherstadt and HafenCity interest group had a wonderful video about the Speicherstadt produced.
