ROTTERDAM, 12 October 2023 – A significant milestone has been reached in Rotterdam's Feyenoord City with the completion of the highest point of Imagine, a new residential tower. This marks a pivotal moment in the area's development, offering a glimpse into the future of sustainable urban living.
Construction milestone achieved in Feyenoord City
The highest point of Imagine, a new residential tower located on Laan op Zuid in Rotterdam, has been reached. Area developers AM and Heijmans have initiated the ambitious Feyenoord City development with the Imagine building. The structure comprises 295 residences, including 162 for purchase and 133 for rent through Vesteda, along with 120 parking spaces and 1,500 square meters of commercial space. The building is designed with sustainability in mind, featuring energy-efficient apartments, a climate-adaptive structure, and a communal inner garden. Residents will also have access to shared mobility options. The building is expected to be completed by the summer of 2024.
Diverse housing options for a wide audience
Situated at the boundary of Parkstad and Feyenoord City, Imagine consists of two high-rise residential buildings connected at street level by a structure housing commercial and social functions. The flats offer views of the inner garden, the Maas River, the new Feyenoord City, and towards the city centre. Designed by Barcode Architects, the living spaces of the flats for purchase range from 48 to 225 square meters, while Vesteda's rental flats range from 50 to 95 square meters. Currently, 95% of the residences have been sold. Parking is available in the lower levels, which also offer shared mobility options. Ten parking spots are reserved for Amber shared cars, with an additional six spots available for other shared cars.
Wethouder for Climate, Building, and Living, Chantal Zeegers, commented, “Imagine is the first project in the development of Feyenoord City. It's wonderful that the first residents can move in next summer. The project offers sustainable residences surrounded by abundant greenery and water.”
Wilco van den Ban, speaking on behalf of the Development Combination OCFC, stated, “With Imagine, we are setting the right tone to create a sustainable urban living environment in this part of Rotterdam. We have a strong collaboration with the municipality of Rotterdam and StiGaM, and we appreciate the trust from homebuyers and Vesteda as a property investor and landlord in the Imagine project.”
The construction is managed by the building combination of BAM Wonen and Heijmans Woningbouw. Henk Dilweg, representing the building combination, said, “With the realization of Imagine, we are making a positive contribution to future residents in Rotterdam South. The collaboration within the building combination is progressing smoothly, and it motivates our team to work on this significant project in a new sustainable environment.”
On Friday, 13 October, Wethouder Chantal Zeegers, along with involved partners, will perform a celebratory act to mark the achievement of the highest point.
