AFH - harbour project in Cuxhaven


Hamburg/Cuxhaven. The project developers AFH - Alter Fischereihafen Cuxhaven GmbH and Hotel Alter Fischereihafen GmbH - are planning a comprehensive redevelopment of the entire complex of the existing Old Fishing Port area in Cuxhaven. As part of this conversion, the change in use of the adjacent buildings around the aging fishing port is envisaged. The later use of the building is characterized by hotel and restaurant business as well as by trade and retail.

Essential components of this comprehensive redevelopment are the reconstruction of the existing quay walls and the construction of a framing underground car park as an integrated engineering structure. The new front edge of the quay wall is shifted by approx. 4 m in the direction of the harbor basin compared to the current state. This creates additional spaces in front of the adjacent buildings.

Already in April 2018, ONP was awarded by AFH to carry out project management services as owners engineer for this subproject.

In addition, the client AFH intends in particular the construction of a hotel complex by conversion of the existing fish auction halls V and IV adjacent to the President-Herwig-Straße. The construction includes the renovation of the named fish auction halls, the expansion of the first floor to a hotel, the establishment of a so-called living hall on the ground floor with reception / lobby, lounge and dining area and adjoining outdoor market hall. The remaining ground floor space will be redesigned for restaurants and retail outlets.

As an extension ONP was awarded project management services for the Hotel Alter Fischereihafen in February 2019. The performance of both mandates is still ongoing.
