At the celebrations marking the 10th anniversary of Hamburg’s Sister City partnership with Chicago, Hamburg’s Minister responsible for urban development and environment, Dr. Michael Freytag, unveiled the City’s plans to develop a ‘Chicago Square’ area, with surrounding high-rise buildings, in the Elbbrücken district (east-end of the Hafencity). The plans will draw heavily on the high-rise expertise of architects from Chicago.

The other proposals looks boring compared to Murphy/Jahn. It seems like Europe (actually the whole world) has become skyscraper crazy since 9/11 (the opposite to the ones who said it was the death of the skycraper) and that is very good thing!
However, Hamburg really need a tall skyscraper since it is a metropolis.
