A squat brown-brick former warehouse at the far west of HafenCity is the base for the architecturally bold new Elbphilharmonie, which will become a major concert hall. Pritzker Prize–winning Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron are responsible for the design, which captivates with its details like the 1096 individually curved glass panes. Also captivating for locals is the building's planned completion date, which was once 2010. But like butterflies in the spring, new dates have flitted by and 2015 is now being mooted. While the budget soars, it is hoped that a Westin Hotel will open in part of the complex in 2013.
