The E Tower is a high rise residence that will serve as a landmark within its newly built urban environment while seeking to bring the amenities of a world class hotel to tower’s residents The E Tower is located in an area of Eindhoven whose urban plan was drawn up by the Dutch landscape firm West 8. The original brief for the area includes the E Tower, the E Block and a slender end piece of the adjacent Block J, which are all apartment buildings in this emerging district. A gap between the E Tower and Block J will shape the area’s entrance while simultaneously providing an outdoor space. Each building in this emerging district has been named after one of the world’s cities with the E Tower taking the title of ‘New York’, aptly reflecting its prominent stance within the cluster.
