The glassstructure is built upon the massive red brick construction of the former cocoa warehouse known as the Kaispeicher A and rises up to a height of 110metres. The heart of the Elbphilharmonie, designed by Swiss architectural practice Herzog & de Meuron, is the Grand Hall. This world-class concert hall with a seating capacity for 2,100 guests and a height of 50 metres will provide a spectacular stage for Hamburg’s vibrant music scene and stars from all over the world. Grand opening is on January 11 and 12, 2017.

Eko Atlantic is a mixed-use project on an immense scale and its creation involves the reclamation of over 10 sq km of land lost to the Atlantic Ocean. This will enable the development of an ocean-front city intended to compete at a global level.
