The Park Tower, a project by Studio Farris Architects and ELD partnership, is situated in a unique location within walking distance from the new MAS museum, the harbor district ‘Eilandje’, the waterfront beside the river Scheldt and the historic city center. The project is integrated into the strategic development project that is aimed to transform the northern quarters of the city and will play a connecting role between parts of the city that have been remodeled earlier. With a total height of 78 meters, the Park Tower is now one of the highest buildings in Antwerp. The strikingly bright white exterior turns the tower into an attention-grabbing beacon that stands out as a landmark for the entire district. The ingenious patchwork of glass façade panels that shelter the terraces from the wind add a playful, layered effect highlighted by a fascinating dynamic of light and shadow. The tower is a vertical reflection of a classic urban street: from the ground floor which has a commercial function the tower literally stacks up to host different habitation styles in the 20 higher stories.
