342 rental apartments, commercial space and underground car park. Total ca. 43.000 m2 gfa.
On the banks of the Meuse river, near the famous Erasmus Bridge, two bronze covered towers stand prominently on Boompjes quay. The form of the towers, 70 and 100 meters in height, expand and contract skywards depending on the viewer’s perspective.
At street level, glazed facades provide attractive commercial spaces along Boompjes street. This transparency creates a distinct connection between this avenue and the lower quay beyond.
The design of the towers produces large numbers of dual aspect apartments and their stepped profiles allow for optimal views of Rotterdam. Floor to ceiling windows, private balconies and spacious roof terraces take advantage of the spectacular vistas over the Meuse, Erasmus Bridge and the Old Port.
The project is part of the Maritime District, a dynamic residential area close to Rotterdam City Center. Boompjes will be the first of nine residential towers to be developed in this area in the coming years.
