Bydel i rivende udvikling

Ørestad rummer efterhånden masser af spisesteder, byliv og kultur. Men meget mere er på tegnebrættet for den nye, grønne bydel.

Kulturattraktioner som DR Koncerthuset, Royal Arena, Ørestad Skøjtehal, Ørestad Streethal og Ørestad Bibliotek er allerede blevet identitetsmarkører for Ørestad. I Ørestad Syd finder du også et nyt udstillingssted for samtidskunst, som kaldes Simian. Udstillingsstedet har til huse i en 1500 m2 cykelkæder under den centralt beliggende Kay Fiskers Plads ved Ørestad Station.

Et spritnyt beboer- og kulturhus, Byens Hus, er under udvikling. Det bliver et storslået hus, som vil rumme mange forskellige funktioner. Her kan du for eksempel mødes med veninder på caféen, opleve bevægende koncerter, afholde festlige arrangementer eller få børnene passet i den moderne daginstitution

Også en ny og beundringsværdig skole skyder op som nabo til Royal Arena. Bygningen vil rumme en firesporet skole, en svømmehal og en idrætshal. Skolen, som forventes at stå færdigopført i 2023, bliver et fællesrum for læring, sport og fritid.

Bæredygtige og miljørigtige løsninger

Man har i forbindelse med opførelsen af Ørestad haft fokus på at mindske miljøpåvirkningen, dette kommer til udtryk i en række integrerede, bæredygtige løsninger.

F.eks. binder adskillige kanaler og vandrum Ørestads bydele sammen. Foruden det rekreative frirum der skabes, fungerer kanalerne også som regnvandsopsamlere.

Derudover har man bygget infrastrukturen op for at tilgodese cyklister og fodgængere. Trafiksanerede veje og anlagte stisystemer skal nemlig gøre det lettere at komme trygt rundt uden bil. Med metrolinjen løbende langs hele området, er den nærmeste station aldrig langt væk. Og metroen er med til at begrænse trafikstøj og ikke mindst forurening.

En del af en levende historie

Var du klar over, at Ørestad har spillet en stor rolle i Københavns positive udvikling? Læs med her og bliv klogere.

I slutningen af 1980’erne var der store problemer i København. Væksten var lav, arbejdsløsheden var høj og kommunens gæld stor. Der var ikke meget optimisme at hente i byen, og ikke mange havde lyst til at bosætte sig her.

Historien viser, at den negative situation i den grad blev vendt. Og Ørestad har spillet en hovedrolle i den positive udvikling.

I slutningen af 80’erne og begyndelsen af 90’erne blev der taget nogle vigtige politiske beslutninger om opførelsen af Øresundsbroen, metroen og Ørestad. Og de beslutninger dannede grundlag for den by, vi kender i dag samt satte den positive kurs for Københavns fremadrettede udvikling.

1 1995 blev en arkitektkonkurrence om Ørestads helhedsplan afsluttet. En ung finsk tegnestue, som i dag kaldes ARKKI, vandt konkurrencen. Tegnestuen foreslog at samle bebyggelsen i fire kvarterer, hvor der kunne bygges forholdsvist højt og tæt. Derved kunne man trække naturen ind mellem bygningerne og give plads til grønne områder. Helhedsplanen gav dermed Ørestad sin grønne profil, som er bygget op omkring vand og natur.

Netop adgangen til smukke naturområder, gennemtænkt infrastruktur, inspirerende byudvikling og nyskabende arkitektur skulle gøre det attraktivt for de kommende beboere og virksomheder at placere sig i Ørestad. Og det må man sige, at bydele er lykkedes med.
