The shell is ready.

Topping-out in the heart of Hamburg’s old town.

05.04.2017 - Here, where centuries ago the "foundation stone" of the port and mercantile city of Hamburg was laid, the Kontorhaus Handelsreich is emerging. The topping-out ceremony will be held today!

The historical underground here is full of structural witnesses to former eras, sometimes up to 800 years old – a very special challenge for the planners and builders, but one that was successfully mastered.

Due to its prominent location on the corner of Hopfenmarkt and Hahntrapp, the new building will help to define the appearance of the Nikolaiviertel district and form a link to the tradition of Hamburg’s historic trading houses.
