Nordhavn came into existence at the end of the 19th century. It was reclaimed in order to meet the requirements for more space made by a growing harbour industry and increasing shipping trade. Today big plans are afoot to develop this area into a residential and commercial hub. In the foreground, the eastern part of the harbour, the new United Nations offices are being built. This project partially finances the extensions currently being undertaken of the underground metro rail network.
