Nothing to write home about... We are voting for the skyline right? There is none...

Skyline = 3/10

City = 7/10 I like it

Here another part with some pics from Utrecht:

The old centre with canals on the first pic. and the newer part on the second picture


Around the main trainstation. In this area will be a lot of building in the next ten years. A renewed shopping mall and new buildings next to the railway will make it a quite big project.




The "Oude Gracht" (Old Canal) in the historic centre




A 90 meter high bridge, made for a connection towards a new city part. On the background the highest builded object in The Netherlands, a 375 meter radio tower.


Some images of the old town will follow in part 3!

The city gets a 8.5/10 for its beauty. Although no skyline.

The Future:

The Rabo-towers:







High-rise around the Central station of the City (+- 100m buildings):



And some other, smaller projects from towers of 40-70 meters are already being built or in study. In the new part of the city, called 'Leidscherijn', there we be build a tower of 150 to 220 meters high.

In the center the max. height of the buildings is limited to somewhere around 110 meters. This because they want to keep the old 'Domtower' vissible. It's an important historic building (Utrecht really has a nice historic center, altough it's smaller than the one of Amsterdam). Outside the city-center buildings may be higher.


Utrecht will grow to 350.000 dwellers in the next 10 years.

It looks, well, sorta decent, but not many highrises except for that bell tower. (6.5/10)
