Yes, this one has been on ice for a couple of years, but I'm happy it has been revived.

This is picture by me showing its future location:

Huge step down from the first design. Is this still being realized by BAM Woningbouw or is there also another developer involved now?

Cooltower
In het Baankwartier, tussen de Witte de Withstraat, de Schiedamsedijk en het Vasteland, wordt naar verwachting The Cooltower gebouwd. Een 150 meter hoge woontoren naar het ontwerp van Van Wilsum van Loon Architectuur en Stedenbouw. Deze toren bestaat uit ca. 280 woningen die zich bevinden op de 2e tot 50e verdieping. Het aanbod bestaat uit twee-, drie- en vierkamer appartementen. Ook komen er bijzondere penthouses welke de toren een internationale allure geven. Oppervlakten van de appartementen variŽren van 60 m2 tot 400 m2. Iedere woning beschikt over een eigen balkon of terras oplopend tot ca. 100 m2. De huurappartementen zijn in het middel dure segment, waar grote behoefte aan is in Rotterdam-Centrum. Ook zullen appartementen in de verkoop komen. Onder de appartementen in de plint zijn ook verschillende commerciŽle ruimten beschikbaar. In parkeergelegenheid voor de bewoners wordt voorzien door het bouwen van een parkeergarage in de Hoornbrekerstraat.

Informatie over de ontwikkelingen in de omgeving
Wij vinden het belangrijk om u regelmatig te informeren over de ontwikkelingen in uw woon- en/of werkomgeving vooraf aan en tijdens de bouw. Daarom organiseren wij op korte termijn een eerste informatieavond over de inhoudelijke plannen en de planning van de te verwachten werkzaamheden. Tevens zijn de betrokken partijen aanwezig voor het beantwoorden van uw overige vragen. Houdt uw mailbox in de gaten voor de uitnodiging.

Inloopavond ontwerp wijzigingsplan
Voor het ontwikkelen van het bouwplan werkt UVastgoed nauw samen met de gemeente Rotterdam. De gemeente zal uiteindelijk de omgevingsvergunning afgeven voor het daadwerkelijk bouwen van de woontoren en parkeergarage. Voordat de gemeente tot vergunningsverlening kan overgaan moet een wijzigingsplan in procedure worden gebracht. Over deze stap en het proces dat daarbij hoort, organiseert de gemeente binnenkort ook een inloop informatieavond voor omwonenden. Woont u in de omgeving van The Cooltower dan wordt u hiervoor in een aparte brief uitgenodigd. Deze ontvangt u binnenkort in uw brievenbus.

The site today. Buildings are already emptied. It shouldn't take long before the bulldozers arrive.
Constructions should start early 2017 if all goes well in the legal process of getting permits.

Another redesign and a new architect but the tower is still on and still 150 m tall.
The reason for the redesign was that the last one was not acceptible for the municipality of Rotterdam.
The new architect is V8 architects

Demolition so far has been mostly inside the buidlings. Hopefully we'll see more from the outside soon.
Official start of sale will be in May, construction is expected to start after summer this year and completion in 2020.

This has really been a slow starter, but the building will be taken down starting feb 5th.
So parking restrictions are being put into place:
