As far as I know the Hafencity is the biggest Masterplan in Europe.

The Hamburg Senate decided yesterday to build the "Elbphilharmonie" (it's the concert hall). If the local parlament approves this project in fall, constructions will start in the beginning of 2007 and finished in 2nd quarter 2009.

I'm very amazed by Hamburg. It surely looks like a very underrated city, especially seeing that it's the city that gave the world 'hamburgers'(the food, not the people!)

Great project! But the area needs a really tall landmark like Västra Hamnen in Malmö has Turning Torso.
The concert hall is however really cool!

This just a vision by the urban development senator after he came back from a visit to Chicago.
Not a vision but approved today by the local parliament is the construction of the concert hall. It will open in the year 2009 and the estimated construction costs are 186 million Euro (77 million by the city of Hamburg, 74 million by a businessman who wants to build a hotel and appartements in it, 30 million by a patron family and the rest by several smaller donations).

Article in the Spiegel news magazine (german language) including 5 pictures of the project.

I like the look of this project, the shape of the whole development reminds me a little of the Easter Harbour district in Amsterdam. I love the concert hall, that's impressive.
