Aarhus’s municipal council has approved the construction of a record-high residential building that will replace the old La Tour hotel on Randersvej, reports Jyllands-Posten.

The new 90-metre-tall La Tour Tower will become the city’s second tallest building, falling only a few metres short of Aarhus Cathedral.

The building, which has been designed by 3XN Architects, includes a five-storey semi-circular structure at the base of a 31-storey-tall tower, and in total it will include 300 living units.

If everything goes to plan, the construction work will begin this summer and the building will be finished within two years.

A nearby landmark water tower has been included in the design and will remain preserved as an important feature of the neighbourhood.
