Looks cool, but I'm not sure if it will be build. It's still the Netherlands after all...

This one can turn out to be either great or a monstrosity, it all depends on the outer coating... Is it going to be covered with glass, or will you see the steel beams? What colour will it have? Are there any realistic renders?
Anyway, this project shows a lot of guts by the city of Utrecht, since it surpasses the previous tallest in the netherlands by 100 metres or so--->respect!

As far as I know, it will have glass cladding, but on one of the photo's you can see some steel beams on the outside.

The colour? Don't know yet. There aren't any realistic renders, so there's no telling what the coulour will be.

This will be the new supertouristattraction for Utrecht, my hometown!

We had the tallest building of the Netherlands for 700 hundred years (112 meter), and now the title will be back at the place where it belongs

Lol a thread in the international section where the same (Dutch) people give the same comments as they already gave in the same topic which can be found in the Dutch subforums. The only thing different now is the language: English.

No dont worry I dont care at all actually. I just think it is funny to see.

By the way: a project including a building with a height of 262 meters and such a design is absolutely worth posting in this section I think.

I rather like the overall design. It's like a flower opening up. I also think it's going to depend on the cladding that make this building beautiful ..or not.

Yes, it's a bit more to the south, just north of the railway. That's not a simple garage though, it's a very luxurious showroom full of the most expensive cars available.
