Last week Deals Copenhagen had the pleasure of assisting Grønn By in exploring and showcasing urban development in Copenhagen. Grønn By is a network for overall urban development in the Stavanger region, Norway. I was happy to join the group for a lovely lunch at the The Royal Danish Playhouse (above), at the “house” restaurant Ofelia.
Meeting and greeting with 18 representatives from my Norwegian hometown Stavanger was quite a joy. Speaking my Norwegian dialect, and it turned out we know a lot of the same persons in our local networks.
Prior to our lunch at Ofelia Deals Copenhagen had arranged for Grønn By, in collaboration with The Royal Danish Playhouse, to have Jens Øblom, Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter (left), lead a special guided tour.
Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter is the architect company behind the playhouse, so our Norwegian group was in the best hands.
After our lunch Special Advisor from IFHP and Deals Copenhagen consultant, Regitze Marianne Hess, started our guided tour from The Royal Danish Playhouse, alongside the harbour and to BLOX. Please note the Copenhagen Opera House in the background – and Copenhagen Street Food at Paper Island (right in the upper two photos of the collage).
Regitze has excellent knowledge about the Copenhagen harbour, and is superb at communicating it.
Almost there: Outside BLOX, not just a building, read more about the extraordinary BLOX venue, planned to be finalized May 2018.
The afternoon was spent in Kødbyen, the Meatpacking District of Copenhagen, where we enjoyed snacks and refreshments at Mother Restaurant. On this pleasant day the transport company of Deals Copenhagen made sure to bring Grønn By around, conveniently keeping their suitcases in the bus, until they reached the Copenhagen Airport later in the evening.
Thank you, Grønn By, it was such a pleasure to meet you!
Greetings from Copenhagen,
Ps. Hear me mention the visit of Grønn By last Sunday, on Danish radio P4. The occasion was the opening of the new Copenhagen Harbour Circle – have a listen from 1 hour, 36 minutes and 9 seconds (just scroll).Grønn By from Stavanger Explores Copenhagen Harbour Life,
