On 3 June 2023, the HafenCity Run took place once again. Over 14,000 runners in a total of 431 teams waited for the starting signal and not only discovered HafenCity but also supported social children’s and youth projects. Once again, Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier also provided a running team. The charity runners started together and reached the finish line of the approximately 4.5-kilometre-long running course.

Preserving biodiversity, protecting habitats and promoting biodiversity – this is the mission of the Loki Schmidt Foundation, with which Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield is cooperating on this year’s Community Day. Hamburg is also home to numerous animal and plant species that deserve special protection. For the Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier team, this year’s Community Day offered the opportunity to learn more about local nature and species conservation and then to lend a hand themselves.

Around 8.5 million donations in kind and more than 220 aid transports to crisis regions are just two of the results of seven years of charitable work by the Hamburg-based association Hanseatic Help. Since its founding in 2015, the tasks and challenges have not diminished. That is why, in addition to donations in kind and money, the association is always looking for helping hands. Following the Hanseatic Help motto “Simply do something”, this year’s Community Day of the Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier staff – after the Alster Clean Up Tour last year – therefore took place on 28 September 2022 in the association’s logistics halls on Große Elbstraße.

The Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier construction site is considered one of the largest inner-city construction sites in Europe and a tour of it is a real experience. Last week, 22 residents were able to see this for themselves at the 10th Neighbourhood Event of the Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier: as part of the event, they were brought up to date in the showroom at Sumatrakontor, were able to ask questions and were given exclusive insights into the construction progress during a guided construction site tour.

“One day, ten construction sites”: under this motto, the ten development projects in HafenCity opened their construction fences on Sunday, 4 September 2022, giving the more than 2,000 participating visitors exclusive views of the most exciting construction projects in the young district on the Elbe. In addition to guided tours on or around the construction sites, there was an exciting entertainment programme, especially for families – with children’s amusement and various hands-on activities.

On 18 June 2022 at 9 o’clock the starting signal was given for the now twentieth HafenCity Run. This year, a running team from Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier once again took on the challenge of the approximately four-kilometre run with a common goal: naturally, the participants, following their sporting ambition, wanted to reach the end of the maritime route through Hamburg’s HafenCity as quickly as possible. The main motivation, however, was to raise money for a good cause through the sweaty event.

They are the tallest Advent candles in Hamburg – the crane candles on the construction site of Westfield Hamburg-Überseequartier, one of the largest in Europe: 75 metres high rise the candles made of fairy lights. Every evening from 6.30pm to 8.30pm they shine above the rapidly growing buildings between the Elbe and Überseeallee, between Magdeburger Hafen and San-Francisco-Strasse.

As part of a Zoom video event, 24 HafenCity residents took part in what was once again a very enjoyable information and dialog event to find out the current status on the construction site of what is currently Europe’s largest inner-city building project. While enjoying the previously delivered Christmas stollen and mulled wine, there was also the opportunity to ask open questions. As always, participants were selected on a first-come-first-served basis, taking into account whether they had already been able to attend one of the previous events.
