Expanded cooperation on Havneøen in Vejle
General news /12.10.2018
Kirk Kapital and the contracting company NRE Denmark expands their cooperation.
The two parties have just entered into an agreement to build an additional 48 properties on Havneøen i Vejle. The developer of the project will be a joint venture company with the participation of the two parties. NRE Denmark will fulfill the role of a general contractor, as was also the case for Stage 1.
The 48 condominiums will be established in two residential towers with a total floor area of 4,515 sqm. Thus, the total area of Havneøen will reach approx. 15,000 sqm. The two towers are built with four and seven floors, respectively, with penthouse apartments at the top, and some of them overlook Vejle Fjord. The apartments in Stage 2 vary in size from 58 sqm to 153 sqm, generally smaller than the apartments in Stage 1.
The construction is designed by the architectural firm Arkitema Architects. The architecture of the project is integrated into the overall vision of the Harbor Island, which focuses on creating a new dense, vibrant and complex urban neighborhood on the waterfront. As was also the case with Stage 1, the new residential towers are being built in brick materials with different facade expressions for each house.
At Kirk Kapital, CEO Kim Gulstad looks forward to launching another phase of Havneøen in collaboration with NRE Denmark: “We are delighted to now be able to embark on the next phase of the project on Havneøen. We are particularly pleased that the next two towers will have the same expression and the same high quality level as the four towers on Havneøen.
At NRE Denmark, they are also pleased that cooperation on Havneøen continues.
“Havneøen is an incredibly exciting project and we see it as a project that will help set the benchmark for the future development of urban port areas. We are delighted with the confidence that Kirk Kapital has once again shown us – and we look forward to the collaboration, now both in the role of one of the builders and as a contractor”, says the CEO of NRE, Jacob Eiskjær Olesen.
Havneøen’s Stage 2 is expected to be completed by summer 2020. Together with Kirk Kapital’s new headquarters, Fjordenhus, designed by Olafur Eliasson, Havneøen will form part of Vejle’s new waterfront, which will open up city life towards Vejle Fjord.
