After the reunification and the opening of EU towards the "east", the traditional hinterland of Hamburg with the economic potential of its population is being redeveloped – a remarkable economic opportunity. This process requires more area for metropolitan services than is available in the city center.

In the course of the advancing re-structuring of the harbor, an area in close proximity to the inner-city and the neighboring historical "Speicherstadt" was defined as the new "Harbor City" – which has been growing rapidly.
