South of Hakkemosen in Høje-Taastrup an area of 840,000 square meters will be transformed into the Nordic Water Universe. The Nordic Water Universe will consists of an indoor aqua park, conference center, holiday homes and a nature park. Lendager Group has been hired by the municipality of Høje-Taastrup to develop the strategic urban plan for the development of the overall experience and leisure area. The plan will provide a robust basis for long-term sustainable development of the district, so that the regional leisure area becomes a major Scandinavian tourist attraction and at the same time creates value for the citizens in Høje-Taastrup.
“We are very proud to be selected for a task of this caliber,” says Stig Ammitzbøll, Creative Leader in Lendager Group. Often, experience and leisure parks become decoupled islands on the outskirts of our cities and are being considered in the light of the city’s development and urban circuits. With the Nordic Water Universe, Høje Taastrup has got its city-driver that will attract thousands of visitors and experience-based companies. “If we plan areas like this one South of Hakkemosen properly, the area can be transformed into new, eventful neighborhoods, which increase public health, create growth and local jobs. That’s what we want to focus on,” adds Stig Ammitzbøll.
The development plan has just begun and the first phase is expected to be delivered during the summer of 2017.
