Skyline III

The "Iron Blade" (strijkijzer in Dutch) is the latest tower that has been completed in the Hague at the end of 2007. It is inspired by the Flat Iron building in New York (hence, the name).

It is located outside the Holland Spoor train Station. It is built on a very small piece of land (30*35m), but is 130m high (among the ten highest buildings in The Netherlands). Most of it is inhabited by young people (300 one-room units) as well as 51 luxury flats. Apparently there is a panoramic terrace on the 41st floor, but I still need to check whether it is open to the public.

Handsome building, but if it's mostly occupied by young people it must be noisy! ;)

For a short while I lived in an apartment building adjacent to a frat house. The noise drove me insane. I firmly believe people start to quiet down in their 30s.
