The two towers, 24 and 27 stories tall, will be connected by a bridge 65 meters (213 feet) long and 17 stories above the ground and the harbor. The construction of what is now termed the LM Project will begin within three years.
“The project is exciting because it has the character to be a landmark for Copenhagen. Companies can use the buildings as part of their brand. It’s a prestige location,” said real estate analyst Stig Kjeldsen.
The building, by architect Steven Holl, was chosen form a number of proposed designs. Holl designed Beijing’s Linked Hybrid complex of buildings with overhead walkways, and Simmons Hall on the Massachusetts campus of MIT.
The LM Tower will occupy 58,000 square meters (624,306 feet) of space, and each building will rise from a pier in Copenhagen harbor.
