Today, most of Copenhagen Harbours traditional activities are situated in Nordhavn, including ferry berths, a container terminal, marina, and industrial companies.
The Muncipality of Copenhagen plans to build 400,000 m² for residence and industry around Århusgade from 2008 onwards, and additional 200,000 m² at Kalkbrænderiløbet from 2015. The area is expected to be fully developed within 20-25 years and partially finances the expansion of the Copenhagen Metro.
Another future project for the Nordhavn area is the proposed UN-city (FN-byen) at the eastern part of Marmormolen. The 45,000 m² project will include most of the present UN activities in Copenhagen.
