Plans unveiled for Europe’s slimmest residential tower

Plans have been unveiled for what will be Europe’s thinnest apartment block, located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The 150m Baan Tower will have a 400 square metre footprint. It is being developed by RED Company, Being Development and Martens Construction, and was designed by Dutch architectural firm Powerhouse Company.

The skyscraper is located in a small street near the popular Witte de With street in the centre of the city; it consists of 145 rental and owner-occupied apartments. Residences range from compact lofts for starters to spacious homes for families as well as luxury apartments.

All floors have large windows with views of Rotterdam. The medium-sized and larger apartments have a spacious, secluded outdoor area overlooking the city. The tower is topped by several penthouse floors.

The building’s façade is made of dark grey stone with an aluminium frame and a 5m stone plinth containing a bistro.

Construction is due to start next year and will be completed in mid-2019.
