The site, with the important location adjacent to the river, have for decades been a 'missing link' in the urban fabric. It has the potential for new connections and shortcuts between attractive neighbouring areas, including the new cultural hub of the former rail yards, the open air museum 'The Old Town', the central public spaces along the river, and the green belt connecting to lake Brabrand. This connectivity, and the historical industrial buildings on the grounds, become the outset of a varied sequence of urban spaces, squares and green parks defining the new town part.
C.F. Møller is responsible for the design of two housing projects on the site. Both projects are aimed at students and young families and consist primarily of two and three bedroom apartments that are easy to share. The court yard of each housing complex offers residents a green, recreational space.
