Hamburg’s tallest building to be completed by 2025

Design firm David Chipperfield Architects Berlin has won the bid to design Hamburg's tallest building, together with property developer SIGNA Prime Selection AG.

Sitting at 230-metres-tall, the Elbower building will become the tallest tower in Hamburg. Construction is slated to begin in 2021, with completion expected by 2025.

"16 years ago, we also won an international competition for our first tower in Hamburg… We feel honoured to build on this success and to have the opportunity to design a further landmark for the city of Hamburg," said Christoph Felger, Partner and Design Director, David Chipperfield Architects Berlin.

The jury was convinced that the design has a “great iconographic power and at the same time embeds itself respectfully in Hamburg’s architectural culture and on the famous city skyline.”

The mixed-use development which will house office and commercial space, was presented to the public in February by Hamburg's Mayor Olaf Scholz. The building is expected to act as a counterpoint to the city's concert Elbphilharmonie on the Western edge of the Elbe River, and a new architectural marker for the Hafencity district.
