Housing

Residential areas in Bremen’s Überseestadt have grown steadily over the past few years. 
The upmarket attic apartments in the area have since been joined by ample family-friendly housing. 
The first residential properties were built by the “WeserUfer” on the riverside. Many new apartments were then built following the redevelopment of Depot 1, the construction of the new “Port 3” at the Europahafen and the emergence of new residential projects around the harbour’s edge. Furthermore, the “Markuskaje” initiative was the first state-subsidised housing construction project in the Überseestadt. 

A further development scheme to built housing to the north of the Hilde Adolf Park in the harbour’s suburbs is currently in the planning stages. The plan here is to identify plots of land to be sold to investors, project developers and construction companies through public tenders.

Planning is also under way to build apartments on the plot of land near Depot 3. 

You can find a selection of housing providers at the bottom of this page.

If you have any further questions about the Überseestadt in Bremen, please contact our project managers Jons Abel and Dagmar Nordhausen.
