The Terraced Tower

Cobouw on The Terraced Tower

The Terraced Tower takes its name from the terraces along the full width of the housing units, with a spectacular view over the city and the Maas. The last edition of Cobouw includes a publication about this terrace tower! Cobouw is an independent news source for the construction sector. Cobouw writes about market developments, sustainability, innovation, construction quality, commissioning and infrastructure.

Terraced tower

Rotterdam is continuing to build on its already-impressive skyline. The Terraced Tower residential tower, a development by Provast and First Sponsor in collaboration with OZ architects and Besix, will be a new eyecatcher in the Maritime District. The 100-meter high residential tower on the north side of the Maas will house various kinds of modern urban apartments, of which 258 rentals and 86 for sale. The tower, located on the site of the former Erasmus Insurance office building that was demolished, takes its name from the terraces along the full width of the residential units with a spectacular view over the city and the Maas.

 

Our contribution

Together with the Wicona and Sapa systems, we are designing, supplying and installing the aluminium curtain walls, sliding doors and frames. Production is now complete to the 22nd storey. Floor 23 is currently under production. On floors 18 and 19 they are working hard to assemble and finish the frames. The frames for the 20th floor have recently been delivered.


What does Byldis Facades do?

We make complete facade solutions, and preferably nice and complicated, because a building should be exciting. Standard project? No problem, of course. We engineer, produce and assemble. The latter can be done on our premises – with a precast concrete element, for example – or on site, whatever the situation demands.
