The new area of dense apartment buildings creates 2,800 new sustainable city dwellings as well as shops, restaurants, and parks on street level. C.F. Møller was appointed the project - from a total of 434 international companies in the initial design competition - to design one of the initial 11 residential developments.

C.F. Møller's project, totaling 185 sustainable housing units, sits in a prominent position and forms a gateway to the new East Village. The design uses variation in scale and height to create a visual identity for the four interlinking apartment buildings, at the same time ensuring maximum flow of daylight to all housing units.

The housing units achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, this due to the low energy consumption and further energy saving measures such as heat recovery systems. At the same time sustainability is ensured through the careful choice of good quality and durable materials. The handmade Petersen Brick façades have been crafted to age beautifully and lend a sense of permanence and solidity to its setting.
