Laying of the Foundation Stone for the Westfield Hamburg Überseequartier

Up, up and away.

Invitations were extended to attend the official laying of the foundation stone for this coastal site. And on May 22 under the motto “Building the Future” numerous guests celebrated the official start of construction at an event attended by Christophe Cuvillier, Group CEO of Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, Dr. Peter Tschentscher, First Mayor of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, Dorothee Stapelfeldt, Senator for Urban Development and Environment, and Prof. Jürgen Bruns-Berentelg, HafenCity Hamburg GmbH. In the last two years extensive work has been conducted in the depths of the roughly 60,000 m² plot. Now even from a distance it is evident that Hamburg’s largest construction project is making visible progress. A total of 14 buildings is being realized at the heart of HafenCity – a mix of retail stores, culinary offers, apartments, cruise terminal, hotel and offices.

Since 2016 WTM Engineers have been responsible for the building and structural planning of the excavation pit, the structural planning of the building constructions, andt also the building and structural planning of numerous engineering structures in the Überseequartier.
