Cordeel to construct two residential towers at Boompjes, Rotterdam
Cordeel enriches two prominent tower blocks (70 and 100 metres tall) at 60-68 Boompjes. The tower blocks comprise 342 non-subsidised rental apartments – including co-living and starter homes – plus a commercial plinth and an innovative mobility solution.
The contemporary residential towers will be situated prominently alongside the Meuse River. A vacant, outdated office building (approx. 11,000m2) will be demolished to make way for a high-quality, sustainable residential complex (approx. 44,000m2). The rental apartments will be accessible to a diverse group of tenants, including starters and people moving up the housing ladder. There will also be co-living options: apartments where every resident has their own spacious quarters with en suite bathroom and shares the other facilities. In this unique project, the concept of ‘sharing’ also applies to mobility. A mobility hub for a fleet of e-cars and e bikes, to be supported by a community app, will be installed in the underground car park.
Over the past four years, ARC Fund, developer APF International, delegated developer Peak Development and Team V architects have worked closely together to bring about this initiative. Thanks in part to longstanding and excellent relationships, a new phase of high-quality residential development is now successfully underway. Demolition work is scheduled to start in February 2020.
