Since 2020, ALFA Development has had options on 22 hectares of land on the northern outskirts of Aarhus. The area is part of the new nature district Marienlyst, which covers a total of 185 hectares and will be developed in close collaboration with several other developers. The vision is to create a new diverse district with light and air, cohesion and a strong sense of community. A diverse neighbourhood with nature as the focal point, providing access to recreational nature and all the facilities needed for a modern, attractive district close to the city centre. The development of the area is subject to the local planning process, which is expected to be initiated in 2024–25.
