On 5th July 2015, the Hamburg port warehouse complex, together with the nearby office district, was designated a World Heritage site – the 40th site in Germany – by UNESCO. The “warehouse town”, with its interconnecting network of streets, canals and bridges, built between 1885 and 1927, and the modern, brick-built architecture of the office building complex from the 1920s to the 1940s are of unusually universal value and the largest contiguous and unified warehouse complex in the world (s. p. 413 a. 414).
