Im already put of buying a spot in this place. most expensive in the city for what? a student style dorm in the cities 3rd tallest tower. Erm ... Marketers dream.

Put this into perspective. Each floor is 3m tall. Red Apple in Rotterdam is 128m with 38 storeys. This is 150m with 50 storeys.

Red Apple will hold just over 200 apartments. 500 less then V Tower. I know Eric Kuhne is fat but his just taking the short ass fatty piss with this.
Rotterdam has a minimum floor height for highrises. And 712 apartments in a 150 meter tower?
I am curious about the floorplans! How much floor space per apartment is that?

Great building guys, fits the location well and I'm glad to see that they've put a bit of creative thought into the design and cladding... looking forward to watching this one rise (just get it started already!!)

^ Fixed. Am I right in thinking it's actually 147m to roof; 150m including facade overrun?

152 metres to the facade overrun actually.

Anyway, construction is set to start in March. Although that can change...

It's part of the structure of the building, which has an impact on the skyline (however small!), so yes it counts. I've modified the thread title.

If that's the final design, I really can't wait for this to start up.

Bump

According to this article from skyscrapernews.com, a new 18-to-23-floor residential highrise building may be built on the site for the planned V Tower, essentially confirming that the V Tower is officially dead.
