Sketch of Mediaspace seen from the air

The Project

The construction project Urban Mediaspace Aarhus is part of the transformation of Aarhus inner harbour from industrial harbour to urban space.

The project consists of a number of elements:

  • Dokk1
  • Waterfront spaces
  • Automatic car park
  • Opening of the remaining part of Aarhus  River 
  • Restructuring the infrastructure of the harbour
  • Climate protection of city centre

Dokk1 and the car park are scheduled for the end of 2014 while the waterfront spaces and the rest of the project will be completed at the end of 2015.

From harbour to city

One of the purposes of Urban Mediaspace Aarhus is to generate coherence between city and water.

The project will have great influence on the harbour area and urban life. The area is convenient for Aarhus city centre, Aarhus Cathedral, the pedestrian zone and the river surroundings. This makes Urban Mediaspace Aarhus and the new waterfront spaces a natural meeting point and excursion spot.
