BUCHAREST | Dorobanti Tower | 200m | Pro

Will it ever get built ?!

Dorobanti Tower, Render © Zaha Hadid Architects
2008-2013

PROGRAM:
5 Star Hotel & Apartments

CLIENT:
Smartown Investments

SIZE/HEIGHT:
200m

CONCEPT:
IntroductionThe Dorobanti Tower was designed to establish an iconic presence in the heart of Bucharest. The new tower is a unique mix of a distinctive form, ingenious structure, and spatial qualities of sky-high living. The purity of its form - a chamfered diamond like structure - will be a timeless, elegant landmark in the centre of Bucharest. Zaha Hadid Architect’s design concept is a synthesis of architecture and engineering, which integrates a dis-tinct meandering structural mesh frame and naturally expresses the changing programme of hotel, amenities, and residential apartments.The site is located in the centre of Bucharest, to the west of Piaza Romana, and approximately 6km south of the international airport. The brief called for a 100,000 square metre mixed-use development at the junction of Calea Dorobanti and St. Mihail Eminescu. The project comprises 34,000 square metres of a 5-star hotel (including restaurants and a convention centre) and 35,000 square metres of luxury apartments. Additionally, the scheme offers lower level retail areas of 4,600 square metres and it delivers a generous allocation of public realm. This public area will be unlike anything else in Bucharest, representing a major attraction within the dense urban character of the City, offering an important new meeting space and urban plaza.

I'm wondering if that area infrastructure (roads) can support this tower.
I think it's crowded already.

Cladding looks pretty good, but I would choose for a single pattern over the entire facade.

The lower part of the tower looks a hell lot better than the top one and it makes the building look more sleek
