Havneholmen (literally "The Harbour Isle") is a mixed-use development located on reclaimed land off Kalvebod Brygge in the harbor of Copenhagen, Denmark. It is located just east of the shopping centre Fisketorvet from which it is separated by a narrow canal, although it is annexed to mainland Kalvebod Brygge at its southern end.
The area was formerly known as Kalvebod Pladsvej and was an industrial site. The plan for its redevelopment was adopted by the City in 2003. A masterplan for the area was created by Gert Wingårdh and construction began in 2006.
The development comprises about 91,000 square metres of buildings. It consists of a mixture of housing, offices and a hotel.
The Havneholmen Housing Estate was built by Sjælsø Group between 2005 and 2009. It was designed by Lundgaard & Tranberg and received the RIBA European Award in 2001. Another residential project, consisting of 148 apartments distributed on four buildings in a fan-like arrangement perpendicular to the water, is designed by Vilhelm Lauritzen Arkitekter.
The nearest S-train station is Dybbølsbro station. The station is served by the A, B, C, E and H trains. Nearby bus lines include 1A which travls along Ingerslevsgade on the other side of the railway tracks on its way to Kongens Nytorv.
The super bikeway Søruten ("The Lake Route") connects Havneholmen and the Brygge Bridge to Østerbrogade along the west side of The Lakes. On the other side of the harbor (Islands Brygge), the Lake Route connects to Universitetsruten ("University Route") and Havneruten ("Harbour Route"), which continues to University of Copenhagen's Søndre Campus and along the harbourfront respectively.
The new bicycle bridge Cykelslangen, opened at Havneholmen in 2014 to ensure fast and unhindered passage between the Brygge Bridge and Dybøl Bridge in spite of the grade difference. The structure was designed by Dissing + Weitling.
