Cornerstone laid on first Rocca Tower building - Endover

Cornerstone laid on first Rocca Tower building

In a demonstration of their faith in the recovery of the real estate market, Endover today laid the cornerstone on the first highrise apartment block to be erected in Rocca al Mare in the last 10 years. So far, 40% of the apartments and commercial premises in the building have been sold. The tower will attain its maximum height in February and be completed by spring 2021.

“We decided to go ahead with the construction of Rocca Towers because the market is showing strong signs of recovery and our sense of certainty about it has been growing by the day,” explained Robert Laud, a member of the management board of Endover. “Our turnover rose in October to pre-corona levels, in no small part due to sales in Rocca Towers, which reached a record 1.2 million euros.” A total of 40% of the apartments in the complex had been sold by the time construction commenced.

The construction of Rocca Towers is providing work to almost 300 people. What makes the project technically interesting is the fact that an apartment building made from prefabricated reinforced concrete and a parking station made from monolithic reinforced concrete are being erected at the same time. “We’re planning for construction logistics that are more complex than normal, since both the assembly work and the pouring of the concrete will have to be done at the same time using two cranes in a relatively small space,” explained Raido Pärn, a member of the management board of Metropol Ehitus.

Assembly’s coming along really quickly, at the rate of one storey a week. The building will reach its maximum height in February.

The Rocca Towers development, which comprises a modern highrise apartment block, a spacious parking station and a smaller apartment building, is being constructed in the area between Ehitajate Road, Paldiski Highway and Õismäe Road alongside the new Haabersti viaduct.

The apartments will enjoy views of the charming silhouette of the Old Town, over Lake Harku and Tallinn Zoo and out to sea. These views will never be interrupted either, as the Rocca al Mare shopping centre and zoo are both low-rise sites.

Standing 15 storeys or 48.6 metres high, Rocca Towers will be home to one- to four-room apartments ranging in size from 19-84 m2. There will also be offices and commercial premises on the lower floors. A safe relaxation area and playground are to be constructed for residents on the 5th-floor roof terrace. The building will also be directly connected to the four-storey parking station.

Designed by architect Rasmus Tamme and ARS Projekt, the building is energy class B and features heat-recovery ventilation, underfloor heating and triple-glazed windows providing high levels of heat and sound insulation. The contractor, Metropol Ehitus, will hand the completed building over to the client in spring 2021.
