BrinkToren in the Overhoeks district of Amsterdam-Noord
Mix of homes and amenities
BrinkToren’s 400 residences will include 100+ social housing properties for Ymere housing cooperative, 30 assisted living apartments and more than 250 mid-priced rentals for property manager Xior. The project will also house various amenities and leisure facilities, including ground floor restaurants that will welcome residents and people from the surrounding areas.
First energy-positive residential tower in the Netherlands
BrinkToren will create social value and a healthy environment for residents. As the Netherlands’ first energy-positive residential tower, the technical concept is highly sustainable. The design has achieved a negative EPC score thanks to a ground-coupled heat exchange system for heating and cooling the apartments and vertical solar panels on the façades and the roof for generating electricity. ‘Polder roofs’ will also be added to collect and store rainwater and create green courtyard gardens and roof terraces. Vehicle-to-grid charging stations in the car park will regulate solar and wind energy streams and provide flexible storage capacity to alleviate electricity grid pressure and act as buffers.
Building faster and safer
As a project, BrinkToren demonstrates Cordeel Amsterdam’s exceptional expertise in high-rise urban construction. Since logistics will be hugely challenging on the construction site due to limited space, we will be using prefabricated elements. Many high-risk work activities will therefore be carried out off site in a controlled environment resulting in a superior quality build at a faster tempo. This means that residents will be able to occupy BrinkToren sooner and during construction the city and surrounding areas will experience less inconvenience.
