Residential tower De Verkenner on Churchilllaan in Kanaleneiland, Utrecht, officially opened on May 18th. Client Mitros is particularly pleased: it is a wonderful building and all dwellings were rented before completion. Therefore Mitros organized an opening party in the presence of the alderman of Utrecht Paul Jansen, project managers and stakeholders and of course the brand new enthusiastic residents.
De Verkenner will give a big impetus to the development of the typical post-war reconstruction district. The new 50-metre-tall building acts as a gatekeeper to Kanaleneiland. The tower contains a mixed programme of housing: 71 private sector rental dwellings in the upper portion, 15 dwellings for autistic youths, and 9 live-work units in the base of the building.
