The building will comprise a new glass structure atop an existing brick warehouse built in 1963 by Hamburg architect Werner Kallmorgen.
The building will comprise three concert halls, a hotel, apartments, and a public square elevated 37 metres above the adjacent river Elbe.
Once open, the main auditorium at the heart of the building will accommodate over 2000 spectators.
