The first official skyscraper that's being build in the Netherlands. And that many more may follow.

The opposers to this scyscraper tried to prevent the city councel to proceed with the exemptionfase of the procedure. They went to court because they heard rumours that the aldermen made illegal agreements with a buildingcompany. The Judge threw them out of court fortunatly.

Vancouverise your city
August 28, 2010 by LG

The Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and Environment released an interesting document about the possibilities of high-rise living in The Netherlands. Its main conclusion is that high-rise is an interesting way of creating dense cities with a considerable amount of (economic and social) activities. It can also function as a way to combat urban sprawl and although the document doesn’t explicitly mention this, I suspect that this is the primary reason why there is a governmental interest in high-rise. Either way, my personal view is that high-rise residential areas are an absolute necessity to create cityness.

The report mentions that the main target group for high rise are young people (either singles or couples) with an income above the national average. They are most likely to consider living in a tower. However, their income is often just too low to obtain a mortgage for the (relatively expensive) apartments. The elderly are also identified as a target group because they are looking for convenience and safety, and high-rise can act as vertical gated communities. The report mentions a couple of time that loving high-rise is very much about getting used to it and growing up in a culture where high-rise is deemed desirable. It is not without reason that interest in high-rise is highest in Rotterdam, the city with the highest number of residential towers in the city center in The Netherlands (and also the highest buildings in The Netherlands). The municipality recently conducted a survey among the Rotterdam citizens to gauge whether they are (still) considering high-rise a necessary strategy for the city center. A majority voted ‘yes’. You can download the report here Kunnen wij hierop bouwen

And, as a side note, I participated in the survey and voted yes. My only caveat is that the municipality should safeguard the urban experience at street level because closed walls and gated entrances are destructive for cityness. Vancouver may serve as an example of how to get it right.



Vancouverise your city (2)
September 21, 2010 by LG

Earlier I wrote about the recent policy papers covering high-rise living in The Netherlands. In a follow-up on these documents, the municipality of Rotterdam (arguably the only Dutch city where residential towers are common place) released its own update of its skyscraper policy. Interestingly, the core of the update is counter-intuitive because it limits the maximum height zoning to 200 meters in order to promote the construction of more residential towers. At first sight, this appears to be limiting skyscrapers and consequently discouraging the construction of new towers. The planning department, however, argues that this policy does the reverse. The former practice established certain zones where buildings of any height where allowed. This resulted in a strong price increase of the land within those zones, to the extent that it became near-impossible to develop new real estate. After all: there was a theoretical opportunity to recoup the investments by building a very high tower. Reality showed the the construction costs for such high buildings exceeded possible revenues and super high-rise never took place. The municipality hopes that a limit on the maximum height will dampen the prices of the land, in order to make high-rise more feasible.

As a side note: exceptions to the 200m limit are actually possible by special permission from the board and current projects that are higher, such as Zalmhaven Urban above, may continue. Head of the planning department Mercè de Miguel i Capdevila said that the need for a revision came from the desire to have a densely populated city center but to retain and improve the urban experience at ground level, as explained in the urban lounge concept. The maximum height zoning is not the only new rule to improve living in this city. Other changes include: utility spaces never allowed at ground level; floor space limited to 40m x 40m and a maximum of 0,5 GSI for high buildings; an obligation to develop so-called green roofs (i.e. sedum or better), and an obligation to design good connections between the different buildings on different plots.

Just awesome. I can just see it as news now: 2022 and Rotterdam tops out its first supertall! Wow, it is good to see that they are willing to build higher. Great news, and I hope that they build this.

Well, inhabitants of the surrounding neighborhood have been complaining. It would cause a lot of tunnelwind and the lowrise part would be too big. Some members of SSC Holland went to the city council too and actually kind of won the case. We don't know what happened after, we're sure though that it won't be built for the next couple of years. A couple of months ago I passed some real estate offices and I saw that apartments in the pre construction tower were on sale Anyway, We'll see. In december 2 100m+ towers will start construction. At the moment there are 2 100m+ towers U/C. For more info visit the projects and construction thread.

The new office building what will be built instead of the old upside down stairbuilding.
The tower is still in race to be built, but progress is slow with the economic situation/housing market.

Het gaat om een honderd jaar oud opslaggebouw aan het plein langs de Willemskade in het Scheepvaartkwartier. Joulz, een bedrijf dat is gespecialiseerd in energie-infrastructuren, gaat het pand huren. Bij de herontwikkeling wordt gestreefd naar het BREEAM Very Good NL-duurzaamheidslabel.

Er komen twee verdiepingen boven op het gebouw, met een volledig transparante gevel en een begroeid dak. Daarnaast krijgt het bestaande deel een frisser en opener karakter. In september 2012 moet het project worden opgeleverd.

De herontwikkeling van het gebouw maakt deel uit van een aanpak van het Willemsplein. Naast het Joulz-kantoor zal nog een gebouw worden herontwikkeld (eveneens naar ontwerp van Dam en Partners). Tevens is de gemeente Rotterdam bezig met een plan voor de herinrichting van het plein.

What a downgrade... Not happy

Although i'd have to add that i am pro re-using of existing buildings.

This will be the new housing block setup next to the Zalmhaventower.

It is tall, but the design is very dull. Rotterdam needs a new tall iconic building with at least a height of 250 meters. So the city has a reason to reclaim its former selfproclaimed title "city of architecture".

Great news. This project has been revived!
It was stalled a couple of years ago due to a real estate crisis in our country.
The design of the major tower is mostly unchanged, albeit for a small height increase to 218 meter.
The lowrise part will be modified into 2 smaller 70 meter towers. Alle procedures for the permits will have yet to be done though.

Design and permits are still on their way. The municipality of Rotterdam will soon decide its approval. Construction start is planned in 2017. Completion by 2021.
However, it looks like Rotterdam and The Netherlands will soon have their first 200m+ building!

In the meantime, the design process continues:

More news: Zalmhaventoren will have a public accessible observation deck at 185 meters above the ground, making it the highest observation platform in the city.
