Irmabyen is located on the former industrial site once home to the HQ of Danish supermarket chain, ‘Irma.’ Established in the 60’s, the area is characterized by ‘Kaffetårnet’ or ‘The Coffee Tower’ where beans were once roasted to supply coffee for the supermarket chain. ALFA was attracted by the potential of the 13,6 hectare site by looking at its location in the municipality of Rødovre - on the edge of Copenhagen, the surroundings and the wealth of nature trails; professional sport facilities; and adjacency to one of Denmark’s leading shopping centers. The development really was about looking into the future and developing a close and collaborative working relationship with the Municipality of Rødovre to achieve their goals for building out a new area of their City. The local plan was approved in 2015, and since that August ground breaking, ALFA Development has transformed the area, incorporating a mix of housing totaling over 135.000 m2 of residential and retail uses and over 1000 new homes. The development alone has increased the population of Rødovre by ten percent. The sheer size of Irmabyen has allowed for many innovative social and sustainable concepts to be introduced. With Irmabyen already being a tight-knit community, the final project to be developed on this site, Living By Alfa, is an innovative new co-living concept centered around a Clubhouse and bringing people together. Opening in early 2023, the Clubhouse for Living By Alfa will provide common areas, offer services and activities to its members. On the environmental front, Irmabyen’s development also includes the implementation of cloudburst flood management for up to a 100 year event within the public realm. This innovation has been integrated into the parks, piazzas and beautiful outdoor areas throughout Irmabyen. Irmabyen received the Best Masterplan Award at the European Property Awards in 2020, and awarded Best Architecture in the Multiple Residence category in 2021. The project complies with the Nordic sustainability Charter and DGNB Gold.

While Living by Alfa is a project within the Irmabyen Community, it also represents a strategic new area for ALFA Development. The project is the result of several years research of global megatrends, local demographics, shifts in the way we live, community based technology and other factors. It is a move towards the hotelization of real-estate and a new concept that ALFA Development intends to roll out throughout the rest of Denmark, Sweden and the UK. Living By Alfa is a private-club based Build-to-Rent community. Totalling 17.285 sqm, where 13.227 sqm are residential, the building offers 163 units, with 62 specific to 55+ Active Living and 101 units for singles, couples, families and the expat community. The ground floor contains a 480sqm Clubhouse as its centerpiece, offering common areas such as a lobby, lounge, event areas, children’s playroom, private cinema, and guest bedrooms. The building also offers a high quality restaurant, take-away, 2 large supermarkets and specialty shops with total commercial/retail space of 4.058 sqm. The Clubhouse at Living By Alfa is professionally operated with partner, IHA, who will provide hotel-like services and activities for the tenants. The Community Manager comes from the hospitality industry and plans a full program for the Club members – also through the use of a proprietary App developed by Wicomico. The Clubhouse has been designed by Danish interior designer Ulrik Wang to reflect comfort and convenience. Living By Alfa was named Best Emerging Coliving Concept at the UN Habitat World Urban Forum in June 2022.See more +
