Arenakvarteret (The Arena Quarter)


The Arena Quarter just south of Ørestad City will house not only dwellings and businesses, but also an indoor ice rink and a school, and Copenhagen’s new international arena will be the natural centre of this section of the city.

Watch the video of Copenhagen Arena. The venue is designed by 3XN, HKS architects, Arup, ME Engineers and Planet.

The infrastructure in the Arena Quarter will be absolutely unique – two minutes to the motorway, the metro, the train and the airport.

The area has a total of 270,000 m² of floor space. The Arena Quarter is a reinterpretation of the original plan for Ørestad and will be organized around a green park area, with room for several kinds of sports and a promenade for pedestrians, connecting the park area with the surrounding buildings. 

There will be a high level of diversity in the buildings in terms of both scale and use. Some will be commercial and some residential, with a mixture of terraced town houses and apartments.

The synergy between the public and private buildings and the recreational outdoor areas will invest this area of the city with a vibrant urban buzz and a unique character.

Copenhagen Arena will be an arena of premium international quality, which can be used for many types of events in the areas of culture, music and sport. For music events etc., the arena will have a capacity of up to 15,000 seated/standing spectators.

There are roughly 100,000 m² residential building rights and 100,000 m² commercial building rights in the Arena Quarter.
