BaanTower Rotterdam building Construction
The BaanTower has received an irrevocable building permit and construction will begin in September 2023, seven years after its initial conception. Situated in the heart of Rotterdam, our dramatically different black marble residential tower captures the excitement of metropolitan living. It offers a blend of iconic architecture, breathtaking urban views, and an innovative lifestyle concept based on well-being – a recipe for the perfect city life.
Eyeline to Skyline
On the ground and from a distance, The BaanTower plays a pivotal role in the remodeled Baan Quarter neighborhood. On the street level, it presents a rich range of experiences for inhabitants and passers-by, from the transparent, open entrance with its beautiful lobby on show to the soaring cantilever that forms a corridor through the building with a spectacular 25m-tall gateway.
On the skyline, it forms a dynamic ensemble with the new CoolTower and DWNTWN residential buildings, giving the Baan Quarter an instantly recognizable silhouette. At 159m high, in black marble with a luminous crown, it can hold its own against the surrounding high-rise development – which is framed in fabulous urban views from The BaanTower’s huge windows.
Black and Gold
On the ground floor, our open facade reveals a dark and smooth double-height interior. Black Nero Portoro marble floors and walls are offset by a golden ceiling painted with a cloudscape in gold leaf.
Linear LED lighting adds to the golden glow. This heady mix is used for the elevator hall as well as the hotel-style lobby, which forms the welcoming entrance to the building and houses the concierge desk. Next to the lobby, the café continues the hotel-style experience, with its white marble bar and huge windows offering lively views of the street.
Windows on the City
The BaanTower contains 427 apartments ranging from compact studios to family homes and penthouses. Uniquely for this location, all the apartments are rental.
Each of the homes offer amazing views thanks to the 2.3m x 2.3m windows. These are framed in champagne-colored anodised aluminum, with the frames incorporating ventilation elements.
Well-organised layouts give every apartment the feel of a contemporary loft, and top-quality materials add style and luxury. Structurally, placing load-bearing columns in the facade and creating a central concrete core ensures that the building is highly flexible: in the future, the apartment layouts can be adapted, reflecting changing needs.
