Demolition work POST Rotterdam started

12 November 2021

The demolition work for POST Rotterdam has started. From Pieters we monitor the construction work with a camera. A time-lapse video will follow in 2022.  

The developer of the project is Omnam Group and Pieters Bouwtechniek provides the structural advice.

POST  Rotterdam
POST  Rotterdam, the former main post office of Rotterdam, is a national monument and one of the few remaining historical buildings in Rotterdam. It is located on the Coolsingel next to the historic town hall.

In 2016, the property was acquired by Omnam Group. The monument will house 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 meter high table construction. The facades of the courtyard remain visible in this way  and as a result, a second beautiful hall is created next to the fantastic existing central hall in the monument.

Spectacular construction
The construction of the tower is spectacular. The table construction 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, some transverse walls and a column structure up to the 43rd floor. Outside the main concrete supporting structure, architectural structures for balconies and a second outer wall are made. Under the tower, a parking basement with a semi-automatic parking system is being made between the mighty base constructions.
