The architect m2r, which has offices in London and Berlin, has submitted this office project in Hamburg for outline planning consent.

The waterside building will house offices for the airline industry, as well as a panoramic restaurant on its top floors. The development comes in the wake of the decision to build the Airbus A380 aeroplane, which has provided a boost for the German aircraft industry. Work is planned to begin in summer 2007, with completion set for the end of 2008.
