Two new twin buildings in Copenhagen Science City-located Sigurdsgade will house no less than 85 new flats for students. The accommodations are entering the market just as a new Metro station, Skjolds Plads, opens at the end of the street. By Jes Andersen.
Private and communal
Each flat is between 31 and 33 meters square featuring a completely outfitted kitchen and a spacious shower bathroom. Apart from the private flat, residents will also have access to a shared washhouse in the basement, indoor bicycle parking, a small garden and a communal activity room for events and parties.
Experienced property developers
The twin buildings have been developed and built by Mäckler. This is a commercial construction company, which has been active for 30 years in non-residential construction. In recent years, they have expanded into the market for youth residencies and family homes in Copenhagen.
Rapidly changing neighbourhood
Sigurdsgade is located in the so-called Haraldsgade neighbourhood. This corner of the capital has been somewhat neglected, but according to Oliver Mäckler, this is about to change.
We feel that the area is about to develop. For a student, Sigurdsgade is perfectly located for the many educational institutions in neighbouring streets and for the new Metro station at the end of the street. In addition the park Fælledparken is within walking distance and the rest of Copenhagen can be reached by bike in just 15 minutes”. Oliver Mäckler, Rental manager, Mäckler commercial construction.
Renting has opened
In total, the two buildings are 2.736 meters square. The average price for a flat will be 6,250 DKK. However, prices will increase with the number of storeys above ground. Because the flats all have kitchens and bathrooms, there is a possibility for public subsidies for those eligible. Mr Mäckler expects to inaugurate the residencies by early to mid-november and renting has already commenced.
