As in Medieval times Ghent was one of the largest cities in Europe, we already have a set of towers in the city that allow us to take a view of the city from a certain altitude. I thought the time was ripe to see what this new tower U/C looked like when seen from the Belfry:



1.


The distance between the Belfry, which could be considered as the very heart of the city, and the new tower that's being built on the former airfield, is roughly 5 km (3 miles).


2.


A wider angle offers a little more foreground/background interaction.


3.


Same, but zoomed in again.


4.


This tower will probably be the cornerstone of a new skyline that will emerge in the south of Ghent in the next 15-20 years. The entire former airfield is being redeveloped into an office and retail/entertainment cluster enclosed by a one-way internal beltway. The general concept is somewhat derived from La Défense I guess, although obviously on a much smaller scale.

Anyway, building regulation in the plan for "The Loop", 'cause that's its name, state that there should be another 4-5 tall buildings in this area, which spreads out along the horizon to the right of the MG Tower. It says nothing about height restrictions in metres, there's only a restriction in gross surfaces and in the floor count, which should be between 15 and 27 floors. The MG Tower has 24 floors.


5.


A little interaction with the architecture of the Belfry itself ^_^


6.


Between the former airfield and the centre of the city lies the city's main railway station, Ghent-Saint-Peter's, also one of the busiest stations in the country. A very large redevelopment of that station has been going on for a couple of years already and is scheduled to finish by 2020. Along with the transformation of the station, a part of the railyard next to it will be redeveloped into a new highrise cluster. Well, highrise by local standards of course: max. height is 90m (app. 300 ft). From this point of view those buildings will seem very spread out, but with "The Loop" filling up the gap in the middle, this might become an interesting little skyline by the time all is finished. In 20 years or so

1. Totaalbeeld. Er zijn 2 verdiepingen bijgekomen in vergelijking met de laatste update op 8 april.


2. Nog een totaalbeeld. Op drie wanden wordt er nu bekleding aangebracht, de 4e heb ik niet kunnen zien.
(o ja, zoals je kan zien heb ik een vervelende lantaarnpaal op de voorgrond een kopje kleiner gemaakt met photoshop, mochten jullie eraan gehecht zijn wil ik hem altijd wel terugzetten)


3. De basis en hellend vlak. Er is weer een tweede torenkraan *kuch*. Naast die grote ziet die er echt zielig uit.


4. Het gat in de kelder vooraan wordt ook gedicht (het lichte beton is nieuw).


5. De "achterkant" waar er ook wordt gebouwd, met de nieuwe kraan.


6. Détail. Men is bezig met de ventilatie/verwarming te hangen.
Merk ook op dat je mooi kan zien waar die hellende bijbouw komt: op de tweede pilaar van links zie je uitstulpingen waar op voortgebouwd kan worden en op het eerste "normale verdiep" een betonnen richel.
Op foto 1 kan je deze ook zien. Die uitstulpingen zijn er op pilaren 1, 2 en 4 (van links), zou er een opening zijn bij pilaar 3? Dit kan kloppen met de schamele plannetjes vooraan in het topic.


7. Ook aan de andere kant verschijnt de ventilatie/verwarming.


8. Nog eens de gevelbekleding


En weer terug naar de Betsberg. Mochten er nu eens geen bomen staan zodat je een zicht had van 60+ m

9: 14 april, gaatje tussen de bomen voor de betsberg (~50m TAW), Nikon D70, 6.1MP, standaard lens 18-70mm.


10: 13 april, beetje verder (~46m TAW), Coolpix P1, 8MP, 36-126mm


Mocht ik het eens op een zonnige dag, en niet bij valavond (foto 9) proberen krijg ik het misschien nog een beetje beter maar aangezien ik geen tele heb is dit de grens van mijn kunnen. D70 heeft duidelijk een betere kwaliteit als ik inzoom op de foto ... helaas minder pixels en zoom dan zijn kleine broertje zodat de laatste wint qua détail.

Komaan, waar blijven die zware lenzen?!

Lovely project! After long years finally a new skyscraper for Belgium (outside Brussels). When was the last built?

De Arteveldetoren (werknaam was MG-toren) is een in aanbouw zijnde kantoorgebouw in de Belgische stad Gent. De toren zal met zijn 119 meter meteen het hoogste gebouw worden van Gent en het hoogste kantoorgebouw van het Vlaamse Gewest. Hij wordt de regionale hoofdzetel van de bankverzekeraar KBC. De eerste spadesteek kwam er in maart 2010, de oplevering wordt verwacht in 2013.

Nice that they keep us up to date about the height.

Another update, from saturday 30-04-2011. Not much has changed since the last update, so sorry for the 'image diarrhea', but I wanted to add a couple of perspectives that we hadn't seen in a while:


1.


2.


3.


Getting there...


4.


5.


6.


7.


8.


They were working on an underpass that connects the parking of the tower to the internal beltway of "The Loop", the future commercial district, underneath the exit of the E40 onto the N43.


9.


10.


11.


A view from the fire escape stairs at the back of Ikea.


12.


A view from the platform in front of the entrance hall of Flanders Expo. Flanders Expo is Belgium's second largest exposition hall, and it houses the world's largest annual indoor techno festival, called "I Love Techno". Technoheads with a love for highrises know where to go next autumn


13.


Seen from behind and between the tin boxes of Flanders Expo. The road on the foreground is the opposite side of the internal beltway of The Loop.


14.


This is that beltway again, this time the eastern section. Work has started to put this piece of the beltway underground, so traffic can pass underneath the tram infrastructure.

In front of the tower there is one half of a two-building residential project that's also part of the "The Loop" program.


15.


The Flanders Expo tram station. The height at the hook of the crane is still 100m...
