Investor has high hopes for new life of water tower


Tags: Excerpts from the Windmill

SASSENHEIM A redundant colossal, concrete building, Sassenheim water tower may be getting a new lease on life. Local real estate magnate Pieter Hermans thinks the towering structure definitely can have appeal to entrepreneurs who want a highly visible office location: 'Just drop by our office at the water tower' needs no further explanation since it can be seen from a great distance. Its owner envisions his tower as the centre for the local tourism information panels, eateries and even a bicycle rental shop. He also sees his 35-metre high tower as an ideal viewpoint and offices. As a water reservoir, the structure held 275 cubic metres of water.
