The 20 floor Ceres highrise will be the highest building in theFinal rendering of the Ceres Highrise, which will start piling in a few weeks:
new urban district, Ceresbyen.
Taller than the closeby 2001 highrise Prismet (63 m),
and the third tallest building in Aarhus when it tops out in 2016
(After the Cathedral and the Aarhus City Tower).
The building will contain 130 condominiums (apartments).According to the lokalplan the kote height is 79.15 m but that is the height measured from above the normal water level. And as far as i can see in the lokalplankort 5 the area where the highrise are located are on "Terrænplan" kote 4 m. So that would make the height of the building 75.15 m.
(On top of) 3 floors of commercial leases (For the engineering company Niras).

deserves its own thread, apart from (but still closely connected to)
the Ceresbyen (new urban district) thread.

Motivation for this thread:
Obviously, in many parts of todays world 75 meters hardly qualifies as a
highrise. But taken in the Aarhus context this new building will be one of the tallest, and therefore (for that reason alone) very interesting to follow.
What impact will it have on the Aarhus Skyline, and the architecture in Aarhus, as it begins to grow here in the coming months and years?
And I wouldn't be surprised if some of us will find a certain >>need<<
to photodocument this - which will probably be a good thing to keep apart
from some of the equally important developments in Ceresbyen.
So, for these reasons I think this thread is appropriate.
(And) Excited to see how this will all play out in the coming months and years
