On 25 February 2017 The New York Times reported:
University College Copenhagen, with its 11,000 faculty members and students, is one of the first occupants of Carlsberg Byen, or Carlsberg Town, a $2 billion redevelopment that is central to Copenhagen's ambitious plan to be the world's first carbon-neutral capital city within a decade. Named after the brewery that was here until recently, Carlsberg Byen is trying to bring a green spin to the usual mix of retail, office and residential space. Developers are aiming to conserve rainwater, generate solar energy and reuse building materials. They envision visitors cycling past shops, homes and galleries. In effect, the project is designed to blend the environmental with the economic.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
At its peak, the brewery, which occupied the site from 1847 until . . . 2008, produced 105 million gallons of beer annually . . . . [Developers] wanted to build 6.45 million square feet [.6 million square metres] of space, in one of Denmark's largest-ever private building projects. When it is finished, it will be the first time that an entire Danish neighborhood will meet strict local standards on energy efficiency.
In all, they are looking to build nine high-rise residential blocks, along with low-rise buildings and townhouses, with space for 3,100 apartments (600 of which are low-cost housing or accommodations for students). Along with University College Copenhagen, the neighborhood will be home to cultural institutions, a primary school and four combined nurseries and kindergartens, [and] restaurants and cafes.
