It's an office tower. The end user will be KBC bank, that will centralize all its regional activities for the provinces of West- and East-Flanders in this location, and also put its IT-department here, I think.

I thought they would only centralize their current activities in Ghent to there, except their offices at 'the Kouter'? Atleast, that's what I read.

You'll see it confirmed in this article that Buffalo Soldier posted in the Belgian thread yesterday.

Today one of our members, Dequal, visited the construction site for a look on the inside (today was the annual national 'open construction site day'). Here's a panorama he made:

- The crane is now at 130m.
- The tower is currently at 97m.
- From now on, the tower will grow with prefabelements.
- The day when they reach the highest point was calcuated to be at the end of june, but it will be mid-july now.

Here's a view from a watchtower in a park in the southwest of the city:




Click for a bigger version. The tower should be topped out by the mid of july.

5. Het bijgebouwtje is nog altijd vrij ruw


6. Het auditorium is dicht.


7. Op de voorgrond is er nieuwe betonnen muur opgetrokken. Ik zie niet meteen in hoe die in het plaatje past van dat "groen hellend vlak".
Op dat hellend vlak ging echter wel een redelijk berg aarde gestort worden omdat er ook bomen in moeten groeien, misschien wordt dit dan de rand van die bloembak?

9. En nog eens van de andere kant, zo zijn we rond.

Great photo update from the photographers and thanks for posting them here.

This is a nice tower, way to go Ghent!
Although this might sound stupid, but am I the only one who thinks it looks.... er.... "eastern european-y"?

That hasn't come up in any discussion on our forum yet, but it's interesting... I'm not all too familiar with Eastern European tower building, so I wouldn't really know. How is it Eastern-European-y?

Typical a Belgian thing to do when the shell structure or "ruwbouw" is finished. Kind of odd to do it with a highrise but people that have build a home do it all the time. It's a sort of tradition. My parents did it to 10 years ago when they build a new house...
Most people only put a tree branch on top like this:

Today 23-07-2011 I combined a visit to a local shop with a little photo work:



1.


The tower recently topped out.


2.


3.


4.


5.


6.


7.


8.


In this lovely summer weather the light gray granite cladding seems to blend perfectly with the epic sky.


9.


10.


11.


On the right side you can see the promotional logo of the city made out of flowers, although from this perspective it's a bit hard to read


12.


13.


Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na Bat-maaan. With the two thingies on top with nothing between trigger my imagination. It looks so ominous
