With the ambition of motivating sustainable growth and catalyzing new opportunities, the Danish Government is planning a coast extension that will add three million square meters to Copenhagen's Avedøre Holme area. The proposal is generated by Urban Power and the project has been adequately named 'Holmene.'
This development advocates for a network of artificial islands that promise to bring "380 new businesses and 12,000 jobs in biotech, pharmaceutical, and life science sector." In addition, Urban Power is hoping to have an impact that exceeds the professional economic sector. With the coast extension, "natural area for sports, recreation and improved biodiversity" become possible, which has an alleviating effect on public anxieties. Moreover, the Holmene expects to address other areas of concern like the need for a flood barrier, the opportunity for fossil-free energy production and so on.
