The apartments will all house stunning views of Rotterdam’s city and skyline, at whch larger sized apartments will also house a private outside area.

The 150-metre tower will be constructed with stone, in keeping with the building’s location and also house a café on the ground floor.

The company informed Dezeen that a five metre high plinth, constructed from travertine stone will be embedded into the base of the construction in order to link with the area’s post war designs.
