New district close to City2 in the works
“Høje Taastrup C” – a new district between City2 and Høje Taastrup Station – will bring 3,000 new residents and an impressive 4,000 new jobs upon completion, helping to further expand the customer base of City2.
The ambitious plans for the new district close to City2 include a green park corridor connecting the station with the shopping centre, more than 1,200 new homes in the form of terraced houses, townhouses and flats, and an array of attractive commercial properties. The project has a strong focus on open spaces, including a range of outdoor activities, cafes and restaurants offering outdoor service, and local shops.
“City2 has long been an important part of the local community, and we look forward to area around the centre also having something to offer,” says Commercial Director Eva Handest on behalf of Danske Shoppingcentre – DSC, one of the partners behind the project.
The Høje Taastrup C urban development project is an initiative of Arealudviklingsselskabet Høje Taastrup C P/S, a consortium jointly owned by Høje Taastrup Municipality, Ejendomsselskabet Norden and DSC.
Ready to serve new customers
For the 72 shops in the City2 shopping centre, the addition of new housing and commercial space from the Høje Taastrup C project will boost their existing customer base. The attractive new district will draw both professionals and families – two customer segments where City2 already has a strong position.
“Our visitors include office staff shopping during their lunch break or on the way home, and families who visit the centre in the afternoons or on days off for enjoyment, inspiration and the entertainment of attractions such as the centre’s cinema,” says Eva Handest.
A brand new city
In just a few years, the entire area around City2 will be fully transformed into an attractive, sustainable and cohesive city, linked by a green park corridor that will also be home to the new Høje Taastrup Town Hall.
Arealudviklingsselskabet will be responsible for the sale of building rights and for all construction of infrastructure, the green park corridor, and a number of areas for parking and activities.
