HafenCity is the largest, ongoing, urban regeneration program in Europe. The old port area of Hamburg is fully reconstructed with a series of urban planning, traffic and building interventions, in the context of sustainable development (middle road back, "smart" renewable energy buildings like ?Greenpeace?, ?Unilever?, etc., "smart" historical proofing infrastructure and new infrastructure from phenomena of natural disasters like floods, promotion policies of ?sustainable mobility?. The northern part of the port is relocated (as a result of the gradual relocation trend and technological upgrading which had already begun in the 1960s throughout Europe) and Hamburg is first associated with the water element and the River Elbe along with a program of its fully environmental restoration. Also the Elbe is still used for a number of "smart travel" people and goods to and from Hamburg. The old ?logistic? used buildings are tottaly replaced by new buildings with mixed uses. Hamburg is flipping its face at the liquid element. It also introduces and seeks the full protection of the wider area of HafenCity phenomena of floods and tides which proved fatal in the past through implementation of the project ?Warft solution?. All new buildings and traffic infrastructure is now built at a height of 4.5-8.3 meters higher than the initial level and in old level created a regenerated track of "historical" walks a total length of 10.5 kilometers, creating in this way an additional network of public urban space, in the context of sustainable mobility. Also the new line of traffic means (U-4) gives new chances in the way of Sustainable mobility for the whole city. Which is the current planning, traffic and environmental image of the region of HafenCity 15 years after the beginning of the program and on completion of 70% of the planned interventions? How this occurs by utilizing a set of indicators in the direction of Sustainable Development and Sustainable Mobility and what is its contribution to the "modulation" of total microclimate of the greater Hamburg region by removing a perfectly disturbing use of the "center" of the city? Which parameters and practices must be taken into account from now on for the Planning, Traffic and environmental shielding of HafenCity, on the basis of original objectives as they possibly today redefined? Pilot presentation of the results of research with use of indicators of ?European Local Transport Information Service (ELTIS)?
