This is a great looking cluster of towers. Definatley an improvement over the demolished low-rise.

This looks like the first activity to make the area ready to build the 3 towers.

In May will be the official start of the ministries and the residential tower will also start soon. If all goes to plan, thats usually not the case The Hague. But it will be a impressive sight to see the 3 three towers going up together in the next few years.

This week they will start to drill and drive the piles into The Hague's sandy soil. This work will already stop after about a week. After this planned break they will continue the work then after the 15th of august. The piles will be driven in all autumn long.

There has also been a modification in the design of the towers' tops, from that there are no new pictures, so this is the last state of affairs:

Last state of affairs in the building process:

Yesterday SSC was weird.


It should be mentioned that the work on the Ministries like Rietveld already mentioned is only for 1 week. They are testing several ways to get the piles into the ground to find out how they can do it without generating to much noise and vibrations when they will start the real work in August.

The piledriver from the ministries site is gone again until after the summer.

On de Kroon location the piledrivers will go on until August/September, not much visible change there since the last update.

But they made a nice billboard for the tower.

After two months time it's time for an update

De Kroon

The piles are almost finished, only one piledriver is left on the site



the last ones are a bit different, these are trekpalen, (pull piles) that literally pull the building into the ground.



detail of the pile driver



Hopefully this means that they will be going up soon.


And now they're almost finished with the piles for de Kroon they start the work on the 2 ministries now the summer holiday is over.

1 piledriver is already active, the 2nd just came to the site and must be build up before it can do it's job



the 1st has already been busy



the site



As you could notice on the pictures, they build a wall out of containers to reduce the noise for the people that are living in the apartments behind it. It's a nice gesture, but it doesn't really work. And it could become scary with the autumn storms that will be coming soon.

omg, i moved away from the hague a year ago, and then they start building things! what a waste though, the black building that stood there before only existed for a few years, and my parents are paying tax for that

Im glad the hague is doing something about it's ugly skyline (u shudve seen it a few years ago )

Great towers for The Hague, real classy and elegant!
The skyline could use some good-looking towers.
