By 2026, the centre of Rotterdam will be home to the unmistakable Baan Tower which represents part of Redevco’s €380 Million in investments geared towards boosting residential and retail developments in Rotterdam. Standing tall at 159 metres, this iconic building of 427 rental apartments will set a new standard in city living. The wellbeing of residents will be enhanced through day to day living while sustainable practices in the construction and running of the building will remain at the forefront of Redevco’s agenda. Of the 427 apartments, 30% will cater for the mid-market segment making them affordable to young adults, young families and empty nesters.
But what really sets this development apart are amenities like a roof top pool with magnificent views of the city alongside a garden offering communal outdoor space while contributing to the local biodiversity. There will also be an onsite gym, communal living room, a combined library and workspace as well as a neighbourhood restaurant and bicycle repair shop.
The project has cleverly been designed to be as flexible as possible meaning the apartments can be adapted to future living requirements should the need arise. Baan Tower has already been awarded one of the best sustainability scores for high rise buildings in The Netherlands. Solar panels will be attached to the roof of the building providing sustainable energy. The tower is connected to district heating for hot tap water and will have its own thermal energy storage system.
As for the demolition process and clearing of the site, principles of the circular economy were implemented, and materials were reused and recycled where possible.
