Phase 2 POST Rotterdam in the picture
The construction ofis in full swing.
Phase 2 of the project is depicted in the video below from; the foundation. This shows that the concrete piles are being placed and that the reinforcement is being applied.
The former main post office of Rotterdam is a national monument and one of the few remaining historic buildings in Rotterdam. It is located on the Coolsingel next to the also historic town hall. The monument will accommodate a hotel and a new apartment tower will be built in the former courtyard. This apartment tower will be 150 meters high and will be placed on a 25-metre high table construction.
The structural design of the tower is spectacular. The structural design of the table has columns (table legs) of 2.5 x 2.5 meters and a table top of 3.5 meters thick concrete. The tower above it has a concrete core, several transverse walls and a further column structure up to the 43rd floor. Structural design for balconies and a second outer facade are made outside the concrete main supporting structure. Under the tower, a parking basement with a semi-automatic parking system will be created between the mighty structural design for the foot.
