La Tour Tower

La Tour Tower3XN and developer Jens Richard Pedersen now officially present the plans for a new high-rise project in Aarhus, Denmark. The vision for La Tour Tower is to create a building of high quality that meets the need for affordable housing while at the same time enhancing the architectural profile of Aarhus by adding a prominent landmark to the north access road into the city.
La Tour TowerThe site on Randersvej 139 is located in an area, which the City of Aarhus has already pointed out as a possible area for high-rise housing. La Tour is shaped as a semicircle; lowest towards the historic water tower and Randersvej gradually rising up into a tower of 95 meters and 31 floors. The building will have more than 300 units of which most are three-bedroom apartments addressed to two people living together.
La Tour Tower“The building has a unique expression and will be a positive addition to the skyline of Aarhus. Simultaneously the shape takes particular care to respect the historical water tower. We have ensured that the water tower in no means disappears behind the new tower but instead retains its character as point of reference and remains a worthy partner in the skyline of the local area”, says Kim Herforth Nielsen, Founder and Creative Director of 3XN.
La Tour TowerIn the upper part of the tower larger apartments are placed. All apartments are equipped with a balcony, which is integrated into the building. This design provides a three-dimensional expression to the facade where each unit stands out but also is a part of a whole. Since the site is located at the highest point of Aarhus, 80-90 meters above sea level, the residents will enjoy a spectacular view.
