Thank God for beating nimbysm. To be honest i had my doubts about this one, because of the power Nimby's sometimes have in the Netherlands.

It is a very small plot, the tower totally fills it's location. To put all needed parking underground (parking for offices but also some parkingspace for surrounding facilities like a theater) you should need to go maybe 25 meters underground or more, in this case underwater since the tower is build in the river.

In the dutch soil, nothing more then mud with some sand here and there, this is to expensive. If only underground parking was allowed, projects like this should not be possible on dense locations, only in areas where the underground parking can be bigger then the tower itself. But the parking will be hidden nicely, and the first 2 floors will have public functions, parking on ground level is not allowed.


Pics taken today by me:
