Test drilling had shown that the ground on the Elbe bridges is a little stronger than expected and that the foundations do not have to be rammed 111 meters, but only a good 70 meters into the ground. The 245 meter high office and hotel tower is to form the end of the Hafencity. The cost of construction is estimated at at least 700 million euros. It should be ready in 2025.”
