In Denmark’s second-largest city, Aarhus, a new 44-story residential tower is already under construction. According to the contractors the building is on track to become the tallest residential building in Denmark.
The building will rise in Aarhus by 2021 and many Danes are curious about the country’s new architectural landmark located in the upcoming harbor known as Aarhus Ø. The tower will consist of 44 floors and more than 200 apartments, along with a café, restaurant, tourist information center, kayak club and an observation deck and a sky bar located at the top of the building.
Luxury apartments with best view of Aarhus
All residences are designed to have a sunny south face and a north view and will feature curved balconies. The Copenhagen-based 3XN Architects aims to transform the waterfront at the harbor into an urban area, emphasizing the interaction of private, semi-public and public areas.
The condominiums will range in size from 500 to 3,000 square feet and from one-bedrooms up to five-bedrooms. Garden plots for residents will also be available. Prices have not yet been announced.
Tallest residential building in Denmark
Builder will be Aarsleff, a leading Danish contracting company, together with engineering and design management by Ramboll, a Danish firm founded in 1945. The local architectural company 3XN Architects has been looking to develop the site for over a decade and has previously developed two now-scrapped schemes. Now, the tallest residential tower in Denmark becomes a reality.
“Over many years, we have been working with promoting life and urbanity on Aarhus Island, and with the Lighthouse development, we will now attempt to embed the temporary urban life into the new neighborhood as a permanent element. Throughout the whole process, we have focused on giving something back to everybody and not just those who will live in the building,” said Rune Kilden, an urban developer and co-owner of Kilden & Mortensen, in a statement.
Luxurious harbor development
The master plan for the harbor development calls for a seaside promenade with cafes, shops, a large square for leisure activities and lots of open spaces.
“This is as luxurious as you can get in the city of Aarhus,” says architect Kim Herforth Nielsen of 3XN. “It’s at the tip of the harbor with ocean views all around.”
