POST Rotterdam Starts Construction
Omnam Group brings the former Postkantoor on the Coolsingel in Rotterdam to the next stage of its redevelopment, by starting construction of the 155-meter high residential tower this summer. Omnam’s problem-solving abilities have enabled the management and running of highly complex developments such as POST Rotterdam. The transformation of POST is a master class in redevelopment, ensuring every part start at the right time and every piece is in place. In developing the best solution for this beautiful challenge, Omnam has carefully selected a team of leading experts in their field to drive this project from vision to reality.
The POST-Tower contains a total of 305 apartments with 70 different layouts and 43 floors. Ooms Makelaars and Christies Real Estate have been involved early in the process for the sale of the 102 apartments to private buyers. Colliers International brought Amvest to the table as the buyer of 203 apartments. The real estate market in Rotterdam is booming and in fact is catching up with any other major hub in Europe. There could not be a better time to buy one of the few remaining apartments at POST.
Mid-March 2021, the Council of State left the original building permit intact. Since then, the multiple teams working on the POST project have been accelerating the construction preparations.
Drees & Sommer Netherlands is responsible for project and process management for the POST project. Senior project manager Rutger Laurs and managing director Michel de Haan supervised the permit process and provide stakeholder management.
