The construction of CasaNova in Rotterdam progresses
The construction of the 110-meter-high residential tower in the Wijnhaven of Rotterdam is progressing. The first prefab elements for the CasaNova waist have now been installed.
CasaNova will be a residential tower in a special triangular shape. Where the tower meets the plinth, the volume is rejuvenated over four layers. The triangular residential tower is placed on top of a five-storey substructure with parking garage, homes, commercial functions and offices. The roof of the substructure provides space for a shared roof garden for the houses of this tower and associated offices.
The tower is constructed from a concrete stability core that extends over the entire height. From the core, a sloping concrete load-bearing facade is created from the 4th floor, which runs straight up from the 9th floor. During the transition from straight to sloping facade, forces are anchored in the 9th floor with a steel ring and extra reinforcement in the 9th floor.
